The Best Glue Guns from Glue Guns Direct

Glue Guns Direct stock a wide selection of glue guns – and each one is suited to different applications. The best glue gun is often determined by the task in hand. However, some glue guns can be versatile – here are our favourites:

TEC 305

The TEC 305 12mm is probably the best glue gun for arts and crafts. The gun’s lightweight casing is comfortable to use and easy to control. A large trigger improves the user’s control of the glue flow. The gun’s narrow profile aids visibility and accurate gluing.

TEC 820

The TEC 820 is available in 12mm and 15mm size options. The gun has a user adjustable temperature thermostat – great for hot and low melts. The casing is lightweight, narrow, and comfortable to use – with extra control from the full-hand lever trigger. The narrow profile and extended nozzle aids visibility, accuracy, and control over the glue flow. It has a high glue output of 2.5kg/hour – ideal for a variety of tasks.

The TEC 820 was created to suit a range of applications. With the optimum glue stick, the gun is great for bonding:

  • Cardboard
  • Ceramic tiles
  • Electronics
  • Packaging, print, and point of sale
  • Polystyrene
  • Polypropylene and correx
  • Foamex
  • Acrylic

TEC 3150

The TEC 3150 is designed for use with 43mm glue slugs. It’s available for use with hot melt and low melt glues – both providing 3kg/hour output.

The casing is robust, but the soft handle grip makes it comfortable to use. The user has great control over the flow of the glue – thanks to the full-hand lever trigger and mechanical piston. The heater housing is equipped with an efficient thermostatically controlled heater. This maintains the adhesive at the right temperature while you’re using it.

The TEC 3150 is best for industrial bonding, including:

  • Woodwork
  • Correx
  • Foamex
  • Acrylic
  • Electrical potting

TEC 6100

The TEC 6100 pneumatic gun is designed for heavy duty use with 43mm glue slugs. The gun is made to a high specification, with an extremely efficient 4.1kg/hour output. Ideal for large, industrial applications. Twin 250 watt heaters offer maximum thermal efficiency – a fast warm-up time and an exceptional melt rate for both hot and low melt adhesives.

The pneumatic projection makes the gun effortless to use. It’s built with an easy flow nozzle and a non-stick piston, providing a fast, smooth, and reliable glue flow. Even re-loading takes just seconds – helped by audio and visual signals.

With the optimum glue slugs, the TEC 6100 is great for heavy duty bonds like:

  • Flooring
  • Product assembly

TEC 7300

The TEC 7300 spray glue gun offers a hand-held alternative to bulk tank systems – at a fraction of the cost. The spray gun is great for heat-sensitive materials, and with the optimum adhesive, the gun can also be used to bond polypropylene.

The gun is ideal for covering large areas quickly – up to 2m² at a time. With the optimum glue slug, this gun can give a six minute open time but an instant bond; ideal for large scale jobs. Moreover, the speed loader can hold two extra glue slugs and re-loading takes just seconds.

Many spray adhesive formulas can be used for a variety of applications. You can also control the spray pattern and output using the rear-mounted controls, and a range of optional nozzles.

As well as spray grades, the TEC 7300 is great for bonding:

  • Polystyrene
  • Plywood
  • Polypropylene
  • Foam
