Glue Dots vs. Hot Glue, Liquid Glues, Adhesive Tapes: What's the Difference?
Glue Dots vs Hot Glue
They provide a clean and instant bond, non-toxic and acid-free, safe, with no risk of burns like you use a hot glue gun. Meanwhile, glue dots provide more adhesive tack levels and size options, have no setting or curing time,eliminate all the mess associated with hot melt adhesives, which help present a product in the best way, whilst increasing productivity and reducing costs.
The benefit of glue dots versus liquid glues can be summed up in one simple word: With no drying or curing time and by eliminating excess squeeze out, glue dots adhesives allow you to control almost every aspect of the adhesive process. Liquid glues simply cannot promise this level of consistency.
Glue Dots vs Adhesive Tapes
Glue dots and adhesive tapes are widely used, but each process offers its own benefits. Adhesive tapes work best for high-speed, large-volume projects, whereas glue dots perform better for more personalized, artisanal applications. Besides, standard glue dots are available in five different tack levels and three different profiles and custom glue dots canbe configured to your specific application, which means you don't have to settle for the one-size-doesn't-always-fit -all adhesive solutions offered by adhesive tapes.
What size do glue dots come in?
Generally, the glue dots produced by the manufacturer are industrial glue dots, glue dots roll, and mini glue dots. They are 3/8 inch at best and some mini glue dots are smaller than that.
To remove glue dots from hard or non-porous surfaces, first, try lifting it from the surface using your fingers (a rolling motion with the side of your thumb works well). If the adhesive will not completely come off, use another glue dot to help lift it. If that does not work, use an adhesive remover such as UN-DU.
