Surebonder

Safer Glue Gun

Surebonder’s dual temp glue guns are built to tackle a variety of jobs, from school art projects to putting down carpet, and every glue gun-worthy task in between. The gun comes in two wattages (the higher the wattage, the more glue flow you’ll have) and both have two temperature settings to better suit the material you’re working with. The hotter the glue, the stronger the bond with things like wood, metal, and plastic. Lower temperatures work well with fabric, paper, and foam. There is an auto-shut off function and a silicone tip that helps prevent nozzle burns. A kickstand keeps the gun up off your work surface. The glue guns come from the Kamins family at SureBonder. They have also revamped the staple gun with TriggerFire, their kickback-free version. We appreciate the way they are smartening up these everyday tools to work better and get the job done easier.

Quick Questions

Does the temperature of the glue affect the strength of the bond? Why is high versus low heat better for certain types of projects?

The higher the temp the better the bond. The reason for the low temp option is to allow gluing on fragile materials like foam, fabric, thin materials, etc. The low temp setting will avoid burning through those various substrates.

Can you explain the difference in wattages, what does that affect exactly? The rate at which the glue gun heats up or the max temperature that the glue gun heats up to?

The higher the wattage, the more glue output you get per time period. In other words, the wattage compares the amount of glue a user can pump out of the gun before the heater has to catch back up with itself. If you took a 10W mini glue gun and a 60W glue gun and pumped glue for one minute straight, the 60W glue gun would put out much more glue and pulling the trigger to pump the glue would have been much easier for a longer period of time.

Can you use any type of glue stick with this product?

Yes, as long as the glue stick is a "full size" or "standard" size glue stick. The diameter is considered 1/2", but everyone labels it differently. Surebonder packaging says 0.43" diameter.

Can you explain the insulated nozzle feature? It still appears to be metal, so how does this help protect against burns?

The insulated nozzle reduces the amount of hot metal that is exposed. The reason for leaving a little bit of the tip sticking out is so the user can cut the glue string with the heat of the tip. Not too many people know that, but that is the conventional way to reduce stringing problems when using hot glue. To effectively do this, you will need to move the glue gun in a circular motion for the tip to be able to touch the string. When the glue string comes in contact with the hot metal tip, the string will cut itself.

How strong exactly is this glue bond, can it hold wood together? Is there any material this isn't recommended for?

There are some substrates that are difficult to bond to, such as glass and metal. Wood is the best substrate to bond to since it is porous, but for the most part, this glue will bond to a large variety of substrates.
