When you need a reliable glue bottle with
precision control, trust the SOLO GLUE RITER®
from The Gluefast Company, Inc. It is a
small glue bottle with a ball-and-spring
valve that applies a controlled amount of
adhesive developed for the picture framing
industry for gluing matboards and dustcovers
onto the back of a framed print. It can

for case and carton sealing, palletizing,
and product assembly.
Melt Glue Guns
Hot melt glue guns are electronically operated
adhesive applicators designed to disperse
hot melt glue sticks to bond two materials
quickly and easily. Generally, hot melt
glue guns utilize hot melt adhesives in
the form of glue sticks.
Make your poster or print look hand painted
with Gluefast's Craquelure faux finish texture

The Standard Edge Gluer from Gluefast glues
the bottom edge of an item and is available
in our #2 and #4 models. The gluing machine
models have the ability to glue up to 2”
(5 cm) or 3.25” (8 cm) of an edge
of paper, chipboard, corrugated, or wood
up to 5/8” (16 mm) thick.
Side Edge Gluer

Dots and Gluefast Duos
From home projects and school crafts to
industrial packaging and promotional bundling,
pressure sensitive adhesive dots of glue
known as Glue Dots® and Gluefast DUOS
provide a fast, easy, and clean method for
bonding just about any two substrates. Gluefast
offers both Glue Dots® and Gluefast
DUOS in four tack strengths — low,
medium, high and super high — for
temporary as well as permanent bonding.
Glue Dots® are pressure-sensitive adhesives
that are sometimes referred to as fugitive
glue or booger glue and consist of a spot
of glue about the size of a dime (1/2”
Gluefast DUOS are pressure sensitive spots
of glue about the size of a dime (1/2"
diameter). Often referred to as fugitive
glue or booger glue, Gluefast DUOS are similar
to Glue Dots® except that the adhesive
formulation is slightly different and the
silicone release liner is two inches wide
with two dots instead of one. Compared to
Glue Dots®, Gluefast DUOS are a cost-effective
alternative with about a 15% cost savings
to the end user.
Based Glues and Adhesives, Pressure-Sensitive,
Hot Melt Adhesives, and more.
Carrying a line of water-based adhesives
and glues, acid free glues, and hot melt/pressure
sensitive adhesives, Gluefast commits to
developing and supplying the adhesives and
glues customers need for packaging, photo
and poster mounting, palletizing, padding,
folder gluing, self-seal, lap gluing, mass
mailing, woodworking, and much more.
Based Glues and Adhesives
Water-based glues are made from naturally
occurring substances such as corn and are
processed into materials including starch
and dextrin. These are among the lower cost
glues on a per-pound basis. Applications
include: general labeling, poster mounting,
and case and carton sealing.
Hot Melt adhesives are made from various
combinations of resin (ethylene vinyl acetate
for example), and wax along with other materials.
The adhesive is applied hot and bonds as
it cools. The cost per pound is more than
with water based adhesives, but the speed
of set is often so much faster that the
increase production rates warrant its use.
Applications include automatic labeling,
case and carton sealing, product assembly,
padding, pallet stabilization, and more.

If you want to learn about mounting posters,
gluing matboards, attaching dust covers
to the back of framed artwork this is the
web site you have been seeking. We can help
you with poster mounting - from the gluing

Gluefast has the answers!
There are many ways to identify a product.
Gluefast may be able to assist you when
you want to bond the identification, i.e.
label or sign, to another item. Our Label
Gluers are great for applying water-based
glue or adhesive onto the back of a paper
label. Want to glue just one edge of the
paper… check out our Edge Gluer.
& Carton Sealing
At Gluefast, we apply glue to cartons and
then use plain paper tape to quickly seal
the case. The glue then dries and forms
a very strong bond – stronger than
the corrugated itself! For faster setting
case and carton sealing, the speed of set
of Hot Melt Adhesives are much faster than
water-based adhesives. Our Hot Melt Glue
Guns and Glue Sticks can quickly apply hot
melt adhesive for bonding with compression
times as low as one or two seconds.
