Are there any requirements for the glue strips used in hot glue guns?

Author:admin Date: 2024-04-26
The adhesive strips used by hot glue guns do have certain requirements, and these requirements are mainly based on the material, size and storage state of the adhesive strips.

It is recommended to use a high-viscosity adhesive strip to ensure that the adhesive strip can adhere firmly to the object to be bonded during use. At the same time, the material of the glue strip should have a certain degree of heat resistance to withstand the high temperatures when heated by the hot glue gun to avoid deformation or the production of harmful substances due to high temperatures.

Regarding the size of the glue strip, it is recommended to use a diameter that is suitable for the hot glue gun. For example, some hot glue guns may recommend using a glue strip with a diameter of 11.0 to 11.5 mm. Using an appropriately sized adhesive strip ensures that the adhesive strip can enter the hot glue gun smoothly and melt completely, preventing backflow or clogging of the hot melt glue gun.

Avoid using long-lasting hot melt adhesive strips. Adhesive strips stored for a long time may affect their viscosity and melting effect due to aging or moisture. Therefore, it is recommended to check the storage status of the adhesive strips before use to ensure that they are not expired or damp.

Different hot glue guns may work with different powers and sizes of adhesive strips. Generally speaking, low-power hot glue guns are suitable for using smaller diameter glue strips, while high-power hot glue guns can use larger diameter glue strips. Therefore, when choosing a glue strip, you need to choose based on the power and recommended size of the hot glue gun you are using.

To ensure the normal use and bonding effect of your hot glue gun, you should choose high-quality, appropriately sized, and unexpired adhesive strips.
