You will need to wear safety glasses and gloves which are made from leather or of a heat resistant material in order to protect yourself from any burns.
When you are working with a powered, hot or cold heat glue gun, you will need to keep the gun in an upright position which enables it to not come in to contact with any and all surfaces and objects. Especially objects and surfaces that can easily catch alight. Placing the guns on their own support stand which is located under the nozzle, in an upright position with the nozzle facing downwards is the best way to store them, as well as to keep a piece of cardboard, or any similar material under the tip to prevent any dripping glue from coming into contact with surfaces. You should place it in an upright position as lying them on their side could cause a fire.
You need to unplug the gun once you have finished using it, allowing it to reach a cool temperature. It is also very important to remember what kind of working environment you are in when using these guns. By simply being aware of your surroundings, working cautiously and using safety equipment, you can prevent any accidents. These are basic the hints on how to use glue guns.
