Glue Dots: Versatility for Packaging and Much More!

In 2015, Glue Dots International (GDI) has become synonymous with the packaging industry by providing quick and powerful adhesive application solutions to save time and money.  Glue Dots are available in many thicknesses and adhesive strengths and when combined with semi-automatic or fully automatic application equipment, they can be the perfect fit for your packaging operations. 

  You’re probably aware of the standard dispenser box for manual applications that use Glue Dots.  Or, you might have had success with the Dot Shot Pro Applicator (DSP).  The latest hand applicator, the Quick Dot Pro (QDP), is making a tremendous impact in the beverage industry by simplifying the resealing of popped-open cartons in the field by the beverage distributor.  Ever needed to repair a product or package at the end of a production line?  The QDP is the perfect tool for that job as well, with adhesive options ranging from semi-permanent to permanent solutions.
