Keep your glue sticks warms, store between 5c and 30c
It’s that time of the year, temperatures have dropped across the UK. Now the chill has arrived and to maintain the best performance from your Tecbond glue sticks, especially the harder, fast setting grades such as Tecbond 214 or Tecbond 134 you must keep the glue sticks warm.
Yes, the cold does affect the glue stick and it’s ability to travel smoothly through the glue gun trigger feed, especially the hard, fast setting grades. By keeping your glue sticks above 5c and not exceeding 30c this will help to prevent the glue sticks from “slipping” in the glue chamber and trigger feed. If you are experiencing severe slippage of the glue stick, by adding a teaspoon of talc to the carton of glue sticks and a quick shake this will help resolve slippage issues.
The cold can make the glue sticks to hard for the trigger feed to grip without slipping. A common problem when the temperatures drop. Please keep your glue sticks warm, store between 5c and 30c!
