Hot Melt Glue Sticks are a typical EVA (Standard Hot Melt) adhesive, available in stick form and is used in commercial, home, craft, and hobby applications. The hot melt glue can be applied using hot melt glue guns, like the TEC250 Industrial Glue Gun and require fast lamination of the two substrates Hot melt glue differs from most other types of glues in that the hot melt glue sticks are heated in a glue gun before application, and then cool to form a solid bond. The thermoplastic polymers that become liquid when heated and resolidify when cooled, are used as a basis for hot melt glue for their strength.
