Glue gun VS Spray tack: Which is best for your printshop?

One of the most essential products in a print studio is glue
and it can sometimes become the most time-consuming daily task. One thing that
could save your valuable time is a glue gun. Today we are going to talk about Spray
tack vs glue guns so you can get a better idea of what’s right for you.

Our Amex Extra Spray tack is a great short-term cheaper
option for any print shop. It does what it is meant to do and creates great
hold between the garment and platen, which is perfect for a short term fix
however long term can become expensive. Here are some of the pro’s and con’s of
using spray tack:

Pro’s:

  • Cheap in the short term
  • Quick and easy to use

Con’s:

  • Can clog up on your press making it hard to
    remove if not cleaned more regularly
  • They can become expensive if you don’t invest in
    a long term solution
  • In a flammable aerosol container
  • releases chemicals into the atmosphere

An alternative to aerosol cans is our TB500 OR TB1000 systems
that use a water based sprayable glue. 1 gallon of our TB10 is the equivalent to
72 tins of spray glue, Making it cheaper in the long run. You simply attach the
TB10 glue tub to the system which is powered by air (requirements are 40-60psi
at 2CFM so can be powered by a very small compressor) and the nozzle will spray
the glue onto your surface, you also have the facility to adjust how much and
how thick you want to apply the glue via the stainless steel nozzle. Another
pro to using this sort of system is that its much kinder to the environment than
aerosols!
