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.

    I went out & bought a 30ct pack of gorilla glue sticks a few weeks ago, thinking they were the best because of all the " hype".😰 My mistake, I should've watched Project Farm sooner🤣

    The commercial yellow ones are the best.. They won't work in cheap glue guns, they're much harder.. Used them on a construction job way back in the 80's... I swiped a bucket full, and it was a sad day when i ran out... lol

    Maybe Elmers glue is meant more for child use? To allow kids to pull their hands apart in case of accidents

    As usual, well thought out! I was really hoping that Harbor Freight (Harder Fate?) would be one of the contenders just because I have a bag full. Now to go check the price per oz. vs the others.

    Itd be awesome to see an endurance test like okay all these can hold over 1000lbs but which one can hold the same weight the longest

    I had never even thought that there would be a difference in strength in brands of hot glue. Keep up the good work!

    If you can get it heated to where it is yellowing and almost smoking. There seems to be a big difference in strength after it gets that hot. Though I've not tested as thorough as PF.

    All those glue guns. A detail I would have overlooked when considering the results. But you made sure to show that there was no contamination between the products.As always a good fair test. Love your channel.

    I dont know if you have done it or not but since I am a 25+ year retired mechanic have you cut a bunch of oil filters open to see which 1 is best for the people watching?????? I know the answer

    This has completely changed my outlook on hot glue. I no longer look at it as just “craft glue.” Very impressed

    How about a test of sealants/caulks for air sealing a home - Dap Dynaflex 230, Zip liquid flash, Tremco Architectural Sealant, Sikaflex polyurethane, Prosoco Joint & Seam Filler, Polywall Joint Filler. Important properties are flexibility, joint filling and long lasting application to wood/wood and concrete/wood and drywall cracks (e.g. electrical boxes.

    For a long time (3 or 4 decades) I have dismissed hot melt glue as a low-strength temporary adhesive. Your test results show that I have to re-evaluate and give some of these serious consideration. Thank you.

    heat it up extra hot. like with a map gas tortch and then test the strength its alot stronger, or use a soldering iron

    Never had any luck using cheap low wattage hot glue guns but heard 100w minimum is needed. Is there a glue stick shelf life and do packages even list a mfg date? Skeptical how well hot glue bond holds over time esp given all the potential application variables then later use variations (moisture, temp, etc).
