AdTech Super Low Temp Cool Tool Kit Product Review

Greetings crafters and hot glue aficionados! Today I am super excited to tell you about a cool new tool that kids and clumsy crafters alike will go totally bonkers for! Introducing the new SUPER Low Temp Corded Cool Tool Kit from Adhesive Technologies!

IMG_2028

This new glue gun is designed with safety in mind, therefore making it my top pic for crafting with kids! The Cool Tool heats the glue sticks at a temperature 75 degrees lower than traditional low temp glue guns. The finger friendly CoolGlue sticks that it uses are perfect for all sorts of creative and DIY projects at home, school and for general repairs around the house too! The design of this glue gun leaves only a small portion of the metal nozzle exposed, further minimizing the chance of accidental burns.

The glue is a little hot when it comes out of the gun, so you still want to avoid getting it on your fingers or touching the applicator tip. The recommended age for unsupervised use of the Cool Tool is 12, but many of us moms use glue guns with our younger kids under adult supervision and (until now) with great apprehension!

So next time you even think about doing a hot glue project with your kids, be sure to reach for the Cool Tool from AdTech! After all, we all want to share the joy of crafting with our kids and avoid unnecessary injuries!

The Cool Tool Kit comes with 10 CoolGlue Sticks which are great for bonding all sorts of materials including foam project bricks, as you can see in this architectural model my son has in the works!
