Glue Dots are double-sided pressure-sensitive adhesive dots, used in various different applications, such as sticking credit cards to paper, arts and crafts, and as a safe adhesive for children to use, without needing a hot glue gun.

Are Glue Dots safer than conventional products?

These are non-toxic, odourless, photo-safe and acid-free. They are far safer as compared to hot-melt options. Since they don’t leave any residue behind, they are safer than double sided tapes.

How should I apply Glue Dots?

For applying, you need to press the substrate against the adhesive glue dot and peel it off. Then, you should press the dot onto the intended surface. Take care not to contaminate the dot with dust or oil, as that can reduce its effectiveness.

Is there a faster method for applying Glue Dots?

Glue Dots can be applied quickly by using a tape dispenser. Unroll the tape from the ATG dispenser and press it against the intended surface. Then peel away the substrate tape. Now you can stick a paper card or label to the adhesive glue dot.

What are the materials that Glue Dots adhere to?

Adhesive dots are quite versatile and can be applied to a variety of materials, such as paper, plastic, wood, foam, aluminium, foil and glass.

How should I prepare a surface before applying Glue Dots?

The surface where you intend to apply the adhesive dots should be wiped clean. It should be free from moisture, dust, oils, lotions or tape residue because that can reduce the bonding effectiveness of the adhesive. Silicone coating can also interfere in its bonding quality.

What is the shelf life of Glue Dots?

Glue Dots do not degrade over time. However, like most other adhesives, they should be stored at normal temperatures, and in a clean and dry environment. It is advisable to store them in original packaging and prevent their exposure to extreme heat, humidity or sunlight. These factors can degrade their bonding qualities.
