How to Clear a Clogged Glue Bottle?
The glue bottle, as a kind of plastic squeeze bottle, is widely used to package various glue. However, there are two situations that easily block glue bottles. One situation is that the inside of the glue bottle is blocked, and the other is that the mouth of the glue bottle is stuck by glue. Then we have different handling techniques for different problems.
Clean the clumps inside the bottle of glue
Open the Bottle's Nozzle Fully
Depending on the brand, either twist or pull the nozzle until open.
Pull Off the Nozzle
Using pliers or your spectacular finger strength, pull the nozzle until it pops off. Be aware that removing the nozzle slightly wears away the plastic detants holding the whole thing together, so don't do this frequently or your nozzle may start to fall off when you don't want it too.
Clean Out the Dried Glue
There will usually be a core of dried glue stuck to the top of the bottle. Pull it off and make sure 6u you can clearly see down the neck of the bottle to the reservoir of liquid glue in a liquid glue bottle. Also, check the nozzle you pulled off, and use a needle-like tool to clean out any clumps.
Push the nozzle firmly back into the bottle until it seats back into the open position. Pushing a screw-type nozzle past this position may damage the threads.
Open the glue bottle caps
1. When there is not much glue left in it or there is an empty glue bottle, you can directly use scissors or a knife to cut its mouth open.
2. However, you can also use pliers, screwdrivers, and other tools to change the pressure inside it and connect it to the outside to open it. This method is better.
3.It can also be soaked in hot water to replace it with a re-solidified colloid, or it can be opened.
Reasons for the glue bottle mouth sticking
Two-component glue will not stick unless one of the components reacts with water in the air. One-component adhesives will not have low viscosity, such as solid glue sticks. Generally, those with high viscosity will not stick to the outlet but block, because the glue will dry on the bottle mouth or solidify after reacting with water in the air. And the export material will generally choose the non-sticky material, and the expensive glue bottle mouth material will be more particular at this time. Use PTFE or the like, the surface tension is small, and it is not easy to stick with the glue.
Then it may be that the material of the glue bottle mouth you bought is not closed. At this time, the glue bottle mouth will be stuck and blocked, which will cause us to be unable to use it normally. So choosing a high-quality glue bottle is very important.
