Pamtite vs Pamtite Plus

The PAM Fastening PAMTite and PAMTite Plus are ground breaking in the hot melt industry. PAMTite glue sticks and PAMTite Plus glue sticks are unique in their bonding characteristics offering speed, strength and versatility for indoor applications. Both of these unique glue sticks are great for a wide array of applications including carpet tack installation, hardwood floor installation and other projects that require maximum bond and durability. For industrial applications the PAMTite series glue sticks can often replace the need for silicone, urethanes, construction adhesives, screws, nails or staples.

The Difference between PAMTite and PAMTite Plus Glue Sticks

What's the big difference? Well, PAMTite and PAMTite Plus are very similar except for the open times. PAMTite has a 1 minute open time where PAMTite Plus has a 3 minute open time. PAMTite Plus also also has a better heat and cold resistance than PAMTite.   

Why We Love PAMTite Series Hot Melt?

  • Instant tack
  • Strength (often the material will fail before the PAMTite Bond)
  • Great for non-porous and hard to bond surfaces

    What Glue Gun do I need to apply PAMTite Glue Sticks?

    We recommend buying the PAM Fastening HB220 glue gun for applying PAMTite glue sticks. Why? The answer is simple PAM designed their PAMTite adhesive to be applied with this glue gun. Not to mention they have nozzles available specifically for the flooring industry. The HB220 glue gun has a 220 Watt heating element and a quick 5 minute warm-up time. This industrial glue gun was built to last and designed for continuous use without any delays.
