1. Why is it called candle glue?

Candle silicone glue (or silicone glue) is an adhesive shaped like a candle. The main ingredient in the glue is Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA). Glue creates effective adhesion to many surfaces surface. The common size of glue is 25cm - 30cm in length and the diameter is about 7 - 11mm. At normal temperature, the glue is solid, when heated at an elevated temperature it melts.

Choosing the right glue gun: depending on the type of glue sticks choosing the suitable capacity gun. The high-capacity gun will help the melting time of the glue faster and suitable for the needs of continuous operation, high productivity.

Absolutely do not let glue shoot into hands, eyes, people, do not touch the molten glue.
