Getting started

Before use:

Working conditions

When using this hot melt glue gun, always follow basic safety precautions. This will reduce the posibillity of accidental injury due to burs or electrical shock.

Personal safety

Contact with hot nozzle or molten glue can cause burns. Always keep device out of reach of children. Never try to speed up cooling process by holding gun under the tap. Always allow to cool naturally. Check cord regularly for damages or ruptures. For safety reasons, do not use glue gun if damaged.

During use:

Directions for use

When using this hot melt glue gun, always follow basic safety precautions. Put gun in clamp and plug in the outlet. Insert glue stick Ø 7 mm into glue gun and allow to warm up for 5 minutes. Squeeze trigger to apply glue on the harder material and do not apply too thinly. Press parts firmly within 15-20 seconds. The connection is solid and can be loaded within 2 minutes (depending on thickness of glue layer). The final bond strenght is reached after 2 hours. Important: Timely insert a new glue stick behind the old one in order to avoid overheating. Avoid contact with hot nozzle. When gun is not in use for 60 minutes or longer, unplug cord from the outlet. Apply the glue in beads on flexible materials and in beads or dots on hard materials. Larger surfaces are difficult to bond because glue may solidify before applied to entire surface. Bonding strenght is the best when the parts are joined as soon as the glue is applied. After loading a new cartridge, allow the gun to heat up again.
