Glu-E / Innovative Glue Gun

Glu-E
Glu-E

Glu-E is a new concept that will change the way we look at glue guns making them more efficient, mess-less and childproof. The design concept is based upon the same principles found in a plastic injection moulding machine. Glu-E therefore uses pellets as opposed to a stick which prevents glue from running down to the handle which is a burn hazard and makes the gun unusable before removing the mess and rinsing. Glu-E contains the pellets in a chamber before being fed into a screw chamber where it is liquefied and forced through to the end and applied onto the desired surface.
