Adhesive rods with an 18mm diameter are used in professional hot melt guns such as the HB 325 or HB 350. Their 30mm length and greater diameter (compared to adhesive sticks with 20mm / Ø 12mm) means considerably greater quantities of adhesive can be processed without changing the rod.
The majority of 18mm adhesive rods on offer are made of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). In special cases our consulting team will be happy to help you find the best combination of equipment and adhesive for you. Alternatively, and as a first point of departure, our interactive adhesive adviser is also there to support you.
