Glue Gun Reviews | TEC 6100

Thursday May 22, 2014

This glue gun is similar to 3M Polygun II pneumatic glue gun, the biggest difference is the size of the glue sticks. The TEC 6100 takes 1 3/4" glue slugs, where as the Polygun II uses 1" x 3" glue slugs. Now, one advantage to the 1 3/4" glue slugs is that we have multiple manufacturers that sell this size.

Hot Melt Solutions for Foundry Applications

We wanted to name today's post "A Song of Fire and Ice" and make some Game of Thrones jokes, but our editor called us "a bunch of slack-off nerds" that need to "turn off HBO" and "actually work for once in our lives" instead of "daydreaming about Dungeons and Dragons or whatever."

Whatever indeed.

We thought it was a good title, because today's post is for those hardworking folks looking for novel ways to improve workflow at the sand foundry, whether that's for casting bonds, fixing or assembling sand cores, or processes like Coldbox and Alpha Set. Regardless of whether you're working with cold processes or materials at 2500 degrees Fahrenheit (see? fire and ice…sort of) there is a hot melt adhesive solution for a multitude of foundry tasks that will help increase your efficiency and improve your quality – without ballooning your budget.

In fact, there is a great company that makes cost-effective, durable adhesives specifically designed for working with sand cores and other products in and around a foundry - they are called Power Adhesives, and their product line is called (fittingly) FoundryTec.
