A hot glue gun is a very useful tool for joining modelling materials and even more substantial materials can be fixed together with it. Sticks of solid glue are pushed into the back of the gun, the trigger is pressed pushing the glue stick forward and molten glue comes out of the nozzle. The glue is manufactured from thermoplastics. Thermoplastics are plastics that melt and can be reshaped when they are heated. Some are suitable as glues. There are different types of glue sticks and these are selected depending on the material being glued. Some glue sticks are more suitable for wood based materials whilst others are for general gluing of a variety of materials.
How to Use
nspect the glue gun for cracks in the handle and body. Make sure there isn't old glue clogging the nozzle. If you find any type of damage to the glue gun or to the cord, do not use it! Take the plug and insert it into an electrical outlet or wall socket. Place the glue gun on a secure surface such as a table. Place a sheet of paper underneath it to protect the surface area. Place a piece of aluminum foil under the nozzle of the glue gun to catch the over-flow of glue that will run out of the nozzle. Be sure to keep your glue gun away from open flames. Insert glue stick into the back of the glue gun. If there is already a glue stick in the glue gun, wait until the glue gun warms up and then gently squeeze the trigger. Once the glue gun has been plugged in for a few minutes, gently squeeze the trigger to see if the glue is hot enough to flow out of the nozzle.
