Pros & Cons – 3M hot melt applicator TC with Quadrack

PRO:
-works great with Quadrack sticks, which have extra torque for deploying large amounts of HMA.
-many different 3M adhesives available for different applications, speak with 3M to get the right one!
-Quadrack conversion can be removed.
-Fully disassemblable, for cleaning, maintenance, or repairs.
-Replacement nozzles for different spreads of HMA during use.
-Glass-Reinforced-Nylon body is resistant to heat, and while it does get warm during use, gloves are not strictly necessary. Always use safety equipment when working with tools, however.
-Quadrack adhesives are sold by the pound, typically, and are not especially expensive. If you need small amounts, you’ll pay a price premium accordingly. but for industrial purposes, you’ll be ordering a pallet of 3M HMA at a time, not a pound or two.

CON:
-temperature is not adjustable. This tool is specifically for High-Temp HMAs from 3M.
-Quadrack is a proprietary and patented technology from 3M, so you must use 3M adhesives with this product.
