Is Gorilla Hot Glue the Best? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 27 May 2019
  • Is Gorilla hot glue stick is best? Gorilla, Stanley, Arrow, Folote, Elmers, Ad Tech, and Surebonder all get put to the test for tensile and shear strength on wood and tensile strength on PVC/plastic. The PVC was left unsanded to help represent how well these glues stick to a smooth surfaces, such as glass, plastic, high gloss painted surfaces. I'm not sponsored by any of these brands and I purchased all the products tested. Thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    The more and more I watch this channel, the more and more I realize how overhyped Gorilla is as a brand.

    Once hot glues have set up and cooled, do we know what outdoor temperature ranges they are reliable within? Like below freezing, or direct hot summer sun? I looked on the bag for the glues I have, but there is no indication.

    I use Ad Tech on all my RC foam board projects making RC airplanes. It dry as clear and paint sticks well to it. I have a hard time finding the clear glue sticks as those tend to work the best and do not become tacky over time. That was an interesting video as were the tests. Hot glue has come in handy on a few projects I came up with. Using just a few small screws and hot glue can really save the weight on an RC plane that needs repairs in a hurry but I cannot wait forever for wood glue to do the job. I do wish they could make the tip more accurate as far as volume dispensed. I also hate it when burning my fingers on hot glue. Most painful!

    I really appreciate that he declines corporate sponsorship. I looked into reviewing some equipment, if I wanted the stuff to test, the companies demanded I test in situations that aren't real world and that I wasn't allowed to publish without their consent.I'll never trust any reviews where they don't disclose just what strings are attached. Thank you for resisting the sirens song.

    Can you post an affiliate link for the top two? I'd love to get more hot glue and send some fraction of that your way, and I suspect future people watching this might too.

    I think your wood quality is a confounding factor. If you note on many test samples the wood broke off and did not just simply separate from the glue hindering the true durability of the glue. In other words, the glue might have had a stronger bond had the wood not broke off from itself. You can't just throw out a sample because it broke specially with a low sample size.

    Before retiring I worked with hot glue on almost a daily basis making solid surface tops . That industry uses 3M brand glues almost exclusively because they offer so many different types of glue with open work times and having many different applications and melting points. They are a speciality type of glue and you must use there brand of guns in most cases because the sticks are 5/8" dia. They do have consumer grade also in case you might want to check into them. It'sthe TF line and gun mostly clears, white, and tans of different types.
