Ltd. say tops the offerings of its new TEC 810™ stick gun. In addition,
the TEC 810 has a compact, ergonomic design and a full-hand lever trigger
that allows for adhesive flow control. It heats up to 380 degrees Fahrenheit
in just three minutes, according to the company, and features an illuminated
on/off switch and an easy-to-change thermostat that adjusts the gun’s
temperature for dispensing various types of hot-melt and low-melt adhesives.
The TEC 810 also features an accurate dispensing system, which allows
the user to regulate the amount and rate of adhesive flow by using a set
screw in the back of the gun.
