What Are Hot Melt Adhesive Sticks?
Hot melt adhesive sticks are a convenient and affordable solution for industrial gluing. Industrial hot melt glue sticks are solid sticks of glue that are easy to ship, handle and store. They are simply loaded into an industrial glue module and heated to melting temperature. Once melted, the glue is forced down a hose and through a nozzle to be applied to your products and packaging.
Whether you’re securing parts and wires in electronic devices or creating a bond between synthetic and woven materials, the adhesive you use makes all the difference. Using the wrong glue can result in a range of consequences — from part breakdowns that slow productivity to complete design and manufacturing failures. Keystone Industries understands your need for top-quality hot melt glue sticks. We have the hot melt glue you can depend on for your specific application.
When it comes to aftermarket adhesive products, Keystone Industries delivers the quality and value your business requires to succeed. We offer a hot melt glue solution that provides the same performance of sticks made by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) at a fraction of the cost. Our hot melt sticks are compatible with industrial glue guns made by leading brands such as Nordson®, Slautterback®, Valco®/Melton® and ITW®/LTI®.
The Advantages of Aftermarket Hot Melt Sticks
Premium quality hot melt adhesive holds many benefits over solvent-based adhesives. They can be applied precisely using a hot melt gun and also by dipping and spraying methods. Hot melt glue is typically safe for disposal, and it also offers an exceptionally long shelf life and strong adhesive qualities. We offer a range of hot melt glue products to suit your application requirements in diameter, open adhesive time, setting time for bonding, tack (stickiness), surface energy and more.

How to Choose Hot Melt Adhesive Sticks
Choose your hot melt adhesive according to your hot melt module type and your gluing application.
