Precast Hot Melt and Applicators
Hot Melt in Precast Jobs Saves Time and Money
Whether you are cladding a retaining wall for landscaping, installing a reveal, building out structures on a farm or dock, or erecting form liners on a public works project, precast concrete is the name of the game. If you work with precast concrete, you know that affixing structural and architectural elements to the form can be costly and frustrating without the right tools.
Hot Melt adhesives and glue guns take the guesswork - and the costs - out of bonds for concrete substrates, chamfers, and structural and architectural elements like foams, wood, plastic, and weld plates. Forget hours of drilling and expensive, time-consuming bolts - and forget tape, too. Our adhesive products provide the ability to precisely position and bond precast parts, with maximum protection against shear and superior strength during the set-up and pour stage.

We offer a range of highly specialized hot melt adhesives just for precast concrete applications. Hot melt adhesives can be applied in a dot, bead or spray pattern. That means no matter where you are in the precast process, we have a go-to hot melt adhesive for you!

All 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.
