Hot glue guns are practical tools for model-makers, tradesmen and other users. Glue sticks are heated in the gun so the correct amount of glue - generally just a dab - is available in an instant. Glue from the hot glue gun can stick a very wide range of materials, such as wood, textiles, metal or ceramics. The glue cools and dries very quickly. Work can then continue almost immediately. Special glue guns for industrial adhesives can produce very strong joints for almost all materials. Polyurethane-based glue can even provide weatherproof and temperature-stable results, for indoor and outdoor use.
