The Future of Candle Making: AdTech 297-800 Delayed Tack Hot Melt

Despite – or perhaps because of – the prevalence of container candles in our society, we rarely stop to think about the craftsmanship that goes into creating these household staples. Yet, any candle maker knows creating a candle that will smoothly, evenly and safely burn inside the beautiful glass jars, bowls, and baubles that have become so popular is as much an art as it is a science.

For the serious candle maker (or even the DIY candle enthusiast), there is no substitute for high quality adhesive to hold your wicks in place. This small piece of string and aluminum anchor is the lifeline of the candle itself and a critical part of candle artisanship, which is why we recommend upgrading to AdTech 297-800 Delayed Tack Hot Melt.

Quality You Can Trust:

AdTech 297-800 Delayed Tack is one of our premium bulk melt adhesives. Thanks to the  long tack time (10 minutes), you can double and triple check that your wick is positioned exactly where it needs to be without rushing the process. We know that anchor positioning is critical to ensuring an even melt, which is why we love that AdTech 297-800 Delayed Tack gives you the freedom you need to make adjustments.

The adhesive bonds easily with wood, metal, glass, and plastic while boasting a very heat resistance, so you don’t need to worry about slippage or movement as the wax is applied to the mold or container. No matter what you’re applying your anchor to, you can rest assured that it will stay in place.

Added Safety Precautions:

When making candles, safety is another important consideration. Your adhesive should be strong and reliable to ensure the wick does not slip out of place and cause a fire or ignite other objects. AdTech 297-800 Delayed Tack Hot Melt is not flammable and yields excellent performance you – and your customers – can trust.

Cost Saving Tools:

As an added bonus, you’ll find that this bulk melt is as effective as it is affordable. Because we never want our customers to sacrifice quality for cost, the AdTech 297-800 glue is priced with you in mind. The bulk system results in long-term savings and more effective results for happier clients and fewer slip ups that require re-tooling your work.

Other Applications:

Last, but not least, you’ll find that there are a wide variety of uses for the AdTech 297-800 Delayed Tack adhesive. In addition to its application in candle making itself, the adhesive can be used to apply labels, seal boxes, and attach product pieces or packaging together. That’s what we call a jack-of-all-trades.

For the growing candle maker, there is no better adhesive to support your production than AdTech 297-800 Hot Melt. We promise the results will delight you as much as your products delight your customers.
