The Infinity Melt sample pack comes with 4 of each of our best selling glue sticks - Average Joe, Mighty Joe, Tough Guy and Awesome Acrylic. Keep these around and tailor a glue stick to any application or use them to test out your project before buying in larger quantities.
All of these glue sticks are 1/2" diameter (sometimes called 12mm or 7/16") and should be applied with a standard temperature glue gun around 350 Degrees.
* Note - do not pull glue sticks out of gun after inserting, this has the potential to break your glue gun. Run the glue stick all the way through and then add a new or different stick.
Average Joe: a clear, general purpose glue sticks. A major step up from your craft store fodder that dries crystal clear and stays that way.
Mighty Joe: a strong, general purpose glue stick for when you need a little more oomph. Mighty Joe dries nearly clear and adds bond strength especially to substrates like metal, ceramic and glass.
Tough Guy: if you can't find a glue stick to do the job, you haven't tried Tough Guy. We recommend a high temp gun with over 150 Watts for best results.
Awesome Acrylic: this is a totally different formulation from the rest. Awesome acrylic is nearly clear, super flexible and has great temperature resistance. Use it for projects that require a strong bond and flexibility.
I haven't tried all yet. It is a nice way to see what you need. I wish It was possible to buy other types and brands of glue sticks in sample packs or smaller quantities as well. I wish it was possible to buy in 1 pound packages or 5 pounds.
We tested the melting point of the 4 samples and found that tough guy had the highest melt temperature. Perfect for our high temperature sealing application, in fact, if there is a higher melt hot glue we probably want to try it.
I have never found a glue that holds better then the The Tough Guy Glue. The Acrylic really works great on rubber moldings because it has some give. All in all what a great product.
I haven’t had a chance to use these yet. It would be helpful if there were instructions on which sticks are which. A couple you can guess at but the others there is no way to tell.
The glue was perfect for what was needed in the warehouse.
Today we want to highlight one of our favorite workhorses in the hot melt category: In...Read More
