The adhesive is fed mechanically into the gun as a solid stick, melted electrically or by using butane gas, and dispensed as a liquid onto the surface that is to be bonded. Glue guns are used extensively in crafts and home repair to bond materials such as lace, paper, wood, plastic, and metal, and in industrial settings to assemble parts and close paperboard cartons. Hot-melt adhesives have several advantages over solvent-based adhesives: they produce little or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be a long-term health hazard; solidify quickly without curing or drying; have a long shelf life; and do not lose thickness when they solidify. Steinel manufactures heat guns, glue guns, gas torches, and sensors. The company, founded in Germany in 1959, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards and is Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant. The glue gun uses standard 0.5 diameter glue sticks (sold separately).
