Subject: [Puptcrit] Best adhesive for Ethafoam / Hot Glues


Mary do you have a brand name for this high temp
industrial hot glue?  We're on a hunt for a hot
glue that doesn't soften unless over 200.   Many
hot glues say they are good over 300 but still
soften and can pull apart even at 125 degrees!
