There’s a reason Glue Dots ® are used in so many different industries. Common in Promotional Packaging and Bundling, Pharmaceutical Packaging, or by Direct Mail companies and businesses, as well as for Crafts, Scrapbooking, Greeting Cards, and card making and in Printing and Bindery, Glue Dots ® outperform all other adhesives. The pressure sensitive adhesives, which are cleaner and safer than hot melt glues, bond instantly, are reliable, and can be used to attach objects from an easy-to-remove hold to semi-permanent. Glue Dots ® from Gluefast are offered in low, medium, high, or super high tack strengths, and in your choice of thickness, known as profile, including low (1/64th inch thick; the standard), medium (1/16th inch thick), or high (1/8th inch thick). Avoid the messiness and sticky residue of industrial adhesives or double-sided tape with Glue Dots ®, also known as booger or fugitive glue (some surfaces may stain so testing is recommended). Get the perfect hold each time by applying the dots of glue by touching the object to the Glue Dot ® or using the Dot Shot Pro applicator to touch the dot to the object.
