The Right Glue Gun for the Job

The easiest way to melt Sealing Wax is with a Low-Temperature Glue Gun. You can use any of our three glue guns to dispense your favourite colour Flexible Sealing Wax Sticks to create awesome Wax Seals... but not all guns are created equal.

We've laid out the features of each hot glue gun for you so you can pick the right tool for the job. There are a few things each gun has in common:

  • Low-temperature
  • Takes 12mm or 11mm sticks (that's about¬†1/2 inch)
  • The plug is compatible with¬†power outlets¬†in¬†Australia, New Zealand,¬†Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Argentina

Check out the features unique to each gun below. As a general rule of thumb, the higher the prices the better the quality, temperature and wax consistency. You'll also get more features and less wax wastage on higher priced arsenal.


Jasart 15w Glue Gun - Make Wax Seals with Sealing Wax and an ordinary Glue Gun!
The Jasart Glue Gun does a great job. It's affordable, lightweight and low-temperature but isn't as feature-filled as its Surebonder counterparts.

  • 15 watts, so it'll take a¬†little while to heat up (10+ minutes)
  • Low-temperature but you'll need to unplug it from time-to-time to avoid overheating or when your wax is too hot/runny
  • Creates a fair bit of wastage, you will get drips so place something underneath (try a piece of paper or a small cup)
  • Use the¬†built-in stand and avoid placing it on its side or tilting it backwards
  • Limited life span but affordable at only A$26.95
