Can I use small glue sticks in a large glue gun?

Last Updated: 17th September, 2021

Smaller glue sticks won't damage the glue gun but the gun will not be able to grip the stick in order for it to push the glue through the heating element.

Likewise, people ask, can you use 7mm glue sticks in a 11mm glue gun?

Make sure you can get the glue sticks for it: the most common glue gun sticks are 7mm or 11mm but some models have manufacturer-specific sticks. We'd avoid manufacturer-specific ones, though.

Also, is there a difference in hot glue sticks? They come in at least two different kinds, either hi temp or all/low temp, basically. If you want to push a lot of volume, you may want to use an all/low temp glue stick. But leaving it plugged in all the time might burn the glue.

Also Know, what is a standard size glue stick?

1/2" or 12mm Glue Sticks (Sometimes seen as 7/16") 1/2" glue hot melt sticks are the most common size available on the market today allowing for the widest variety of formulations to be used.

Are there different size glue sticks?

Size of glue sticks There are three difference glue sizes, 12 mm, 7 mm and oval, here's how it works: 12 mm glue sticks are the standard size. Glue sticks for Installation and Fix and repair are all 12 mm. 7 mm glue sticks allow for precision gluing due to a smaller glue output.

Is hot glue permanent?

At room temperature, hot melt glue sticks are in solid form and as they are applied to the surface of a material they turn into molten form. In fact, hot glue is as permanent as epoxy glue and it is suitable in applications where epoxy is not.

The hot glue gun sticks dry easily, and so it is waterproof. The adhesive sits on the surface of the materials being bonded rather than just penetrating the surface with the help of the carrier.

How do you use a glue gun for the first time?

Aim the nozzle of the glue gun downwards and place it close the item you'll be gluing. Gently squeeze the trigger of the gun until melted glue begins to emerge from the nozzle. Glue directly onto the item's surface, leaving the nozzle in contact. Apply the glue smoothly in dots, swirls or straight lines.

Does hot glue stick to plastic?

A high-temperature glue gun can glue almost all plastics, but not with hobby-store glue. You can buy the glue gun from any source (as long as it takes 11–12mm glue sticks and gets up to 194 C), but you'd better buy the glue from a specialty source. Hot melt adhesive for plastic will give a strong bond.
