Heat gun

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.

Great Reasons for Using a Heat Gun

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.
