Five Uses for a Really Good Heat Gun
A heat gun, first patented in the late 1950's, is a tool that puts out a stream of hot air, between 200 and 1000 degrees Fahrenheit; some heat guns can go as high as 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. A heat gun is held in the hand and has a trigger—that's how this device got its name. It is shaped like a regular handgun. Heat guns can be used for a number of activities mostly related to construction, building and fixing things. Industrial heat guns are larger and more powerful, and only experienced users should ever come into contact with any type of heat gun.
Heat Gun Uses
If you own a heat gun, you have probably discovered many uses for it and have certainly gotten your money's worth. If you are considering buying a heat gun, you may be wondering how it can be used. Here are five uses for a really good heat gun:
1)Defrost a freezer that is iced over or defrost frozen pipes inside and outside the home.
2)Soften various materials such as plastics, candle wax, putty, etc. A heat gun can be used to soften/melt the glue that has been used to secure something and a heat gun will soften tile to make cutting and forming it much easier.
3)Strip paint and wallpaper to prepare for something new with a heat gun. By applying heat while scraping, you'll see how much easier the process becomes. Using a scraper alone could take hours, or days, depending on the size of the room(s). When using a heat gun with the scraper, you can complete the job in much less time and with much less effort.
4)Shrink wrapping is a popular use for heat guns, both around the home and for industrial-sized jobs such as winterizing boats.
5)Remove wrinkles and repair tears in various types of material such as car upholstery and vinyl flooring.
Whether you're looking for a heat gun for large jobs or small, once you find one you really like, you will be amazed at what it can accomplish. Industrial heat guns are perfect for people who do construction type of work, and smaller heat guns are great for odd jobs around the house. You can even use a heat gun in the kitchen as a torch for certain foods that need a charred look on them such as crème brulee, roasted red peppers and green chiles!
