Introduction to the TR 700 Pneumatic Glue Gun
Gluegun.com now offers the Reka TR 700 Pneumatic Glue Gun. The TR 700 features replaceable 310 ml aluminum cartridges that dispense PUR hot melt adhesive in dots, beads, and other nozzle-dispense forms. It features an operating temperature of 120˚C, and its lightweight makes it ideal for light-industrial applications in industries like packaging, assembly, and installation. The TR 700 also features a thermostat for optimal temperature control and is warmed-up and ready to go in just between 3-10 minutes. An electrical cord accompanies the gun, which operates at 400 Watts.
The TR 700 from Reka is a pneumatic glue gun, which means it operates by dispersing hot melt using air pressure. This increases the work speed of the gun, which in turn increases your production rate and decreases lost production time and expenses. Pneumatic dispensing also simplifies exact dosing, increasing the precision of the gun, and saving you both time and money. The ease of switching out the aluminum cartridges also increases your production time. There is also an optional cartridge pre-heater KVG, which begins heating glue before you use it, making the gun's output rate even faster.
Polyurethane PUR Hot Melt Adhesives
Polyurethane hot melt, more commonly known as PUR, is similar to traditional hot melt but offers additional bonding attributes for applications that require higher endurance to elements or a stronger bond. PUR is unique because it undergoes a chemical process known as cross-linking, which is when the polyurethane hot melt bonds continue to strengthen as they react with moisture in the air.
Compared to traditional hot melt, PUR also offers a more exact open time. Some common open times of PUR adhesives are 30, 60, and 180 seconds. One of our go-to PUR adhesives is the Infinity Bond SuperPUR 60, which has an open time of about 60 seconds. Shop more of our PUR Adhesives, here.
