Hot glue Sticks

Hot glue sticks, also known as hot adhesive sticks or glue cartridges, are cylindrical rods made of thermoplastic glue used in glue guns. They come in various sizes and colors, depending on the specific application and type of glue gun.

Here are some features and applications of hot glue sticks:

  • Thermoplastic glue: Glue sticks are made of thermoplastic glue, meaning the glue melts when heated and solidifies again when cooled. When the glue sticks are placed in a glue gun and heated, the glue melts and becomes liquid, allowing it to be applied to the desired surface.
  • Various sizes: Glue sticks are available in different diameters, such as 7 mm, 11 mm, or 12 mm, depending on the type of glue gun used. It is important to choose the right size of hot glue sticks that are compatible with the specific glue gun being used.
  • Color variations: Hot glue cartridges are available in various colors, such as transparent, white, black, yellow, blue, red, and so on. The color of the glue may depend on the type of glue and the manufacturer. The color can be chosen based on personal preference or for aesthetic reasons, depending on the application.
  • Versatility of applications: Hot glue sticks are used in a wide range of applications, such as craft projects, hobbies, repairs, do-it-yourself projects, packaging, product assembly, and more. They can be used on materials such as paper, cardboard, wood, plastic, fabric, leather, and certain metals.
  • Rapid curing: Hot glue sticks typically have a fast curing time, meaning they quickly solidify and adhere once applied to the surface. This makes them convenient for quick repairs and projects that require immediate bonding. There are differences in the so-called open time, the time during which the glue remains workable. Think about the difference between gluing, for example, packaging (closing boxes) or upholstering a staircase.

The use of hot glue sticks and glue guns provides a simple and convenient way to apply glue to different materials. It is important to select the right size and color of hot glue sticks based on the application and the type of glue gun being used. It is also important to take precautions when handling the glue gun and hot glue to prevent burns.
