3M POLYGUN AE II APPLICATOR combines features of a high-

volume industrial system into a compact, self-contained applicator. The 20-oz. tool warms up in three minutes and adhesive flows up to 4 lbs. per hour to keep up with assembly line speeds. The 250-watt positive temperature coefficient (PTC) system maintains a consistent temperature of 400 F (204 C) for application. In furniture and fixture assembly, the company recommends 3M Jet-melt adhesive 3747 AE for quick bonding of softwoods, hardwoods, and particleboard. The applicator plugs into any 110-volt outlet and is priced at $49.95. Contact: 3M Industrial Adhesives & Tapes Division, 3M Center, Building 220-5E, St. Paul, MN 55144-1000.
