An electric tool that blows out hot air up to 650°C.
A heat gun is a tool you use for heating up objects without using a naked flame.
Curves: You can use a heat gun to soften plastics to form single and double curved shapes.
Control: With the heat gun you can select how hot the air will be coming out of the gun to help you avoid melting your work.
Safety: Unlike a blowtorch that has a naked flame, the heat gun uses a heating element which makes it harder to scorch/burn the object you are trying to heat up.
Some materials can release noxious fumes when heated up, consult the workshop staff before using the heat gun.
