Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Hot Glue in Australia's weather?

I've had hot glue as well as other heat-sensitive materials go soft on  
me in my van in the summer -- when the heat can get into the 90's, and  
the inside of the van can be 100+ .

My concern would be in the shipping, not in the actual use once they  
are there.
