Opti-Temp Essential Mini Glue Gun (#2001)

AdTech’s mission is to inspire our customers with innovative bonding solutions. Our new line of Opti-Temp™ mini glue guns does just that, combining superior ergonomics, powerful heating elements, and class-leading features—all in a system that takes temperature variables out of the equation.

Why decide between low-temp, high-temp, or dual-temp? AdTech has developed its innovative Opti-Temp™ glue guns, so you don’t have to—they’re hot enough to create strong, fast bonds, and cool enough to handle delicate materials. All Opti-Temp™ models feature our optimal-temperature exclusive heating system, and provide precision glue placement for any project, from big to small, durable to delicate. These mini glue guns create better bonds than you’ve ever experienced, all in a package that’s lighter weight and easier to use.

One of the most unique and versatile glue guns in the Opti-Temp™ line-up is the economically-priced Essential model. This innovative design utilizes a forward-sliding trigger which lays down long, precise glue lines with complete control. In fact, the Essential mini can apply longer glue lines than any other mini glue gun on the market. Plus, its advanced 10-watt heating system heats up quickly, making this the perfect tool for crafts, school projects and small home repairs that don’t require high volumes of adhesive.

This hand-sized model excels at detail work, and is small enough to apply glue in tight situations. Its extended nozzle allows you to put glue exactly where you want it, while the unique trigger mechanism enables the user to operate it with either their thumb or palm, depending on preference. Other standout features include an ergonomic handle, 5-foot power cord, integrated safety fuse, smooth feeding mechanism, and a “stand-less” design—allowing the fully-heated glue gun to be conveniently and safely laid on its side without the need for a heat-resistant pad. Like our complete range of hot-melt glue guns, the Opti-Temp™ Essential is UL certified to ensure safe operation, and comes with a money-back guarantee.

For best results, pair with AdTech’s premium Artistick glue sticks—an innovative adhesive formula which provides the strongest bonds, and nearly eliminates drips and strings. It’s better glue than you ever imagined!
