 Pros and Cons of Using Hot Glue to Repad a Clarinet
Author: bwilber

I don't know the chemical difference in the little white pellets used regularily in clarinet pad repair and the hot glue sticks that one can buy in craft stores, but I would like to know the difference. Do the little pellets stick better then the craft store glue sticks?

Also, I have used the search feature on the bboard and have conflicting ideas of whether it's good to use the glue sticks or not. Some will say that hot glue sticks don't adhere to the metal cups as well as the pellets and others say that it is hard to remove from the cups, which to me says that it adhers very well to the metal, that is if it's that hard to get out. I would think if the cup is clean without any greasy residue and the glue is hard to get out, then it's perfect. It's cheap and it's convenient and no fire to deal with.

What is the difference in the melting points of the little pellets and the hot glue sticks? Some people suggest that if a person uses the hot melt sticks, that in hot weather that the glue will soften up and the pads will fall out but if the pellets have about the same melting temperature, wouldn't that be true of of the pellets too? Do the pellets have a higher melting temperature? Thanks for any info.
