Common Questions About Precast Hot Melt and Applicators

Yes! All hot melt glue guns (not to mention the glue itself) are inexpensive but very high-quality, meaning you'll make a high return on your initial investment over and over again. A one-time purchase gets you a durable, long-lasting gun that will work faithfully by your side job after job and year after year. Unlike buying new rolls of tape or shelling out for custom hardware, all you have to do for subsequent jobs is make sure you've got enough glue.

No! Unlike screws and bolts, which leave ugly scars and holes, hot melt glue cools quickly, meaning that both your architectural/structural elements and your concrete remain undamaged throughout the bonding process. When it comes to precision positioning and bonding and getting the best protection against shear, you can't do anything better than hot melt.
