According to Princeton University, heat guns are “constructed with a motor-driven fan that blows air over an electrically heated filament. The heating element in a heat gun typically becomes red-hot during use. Heat guns operate at lower air speeds and produce temperature as high as 1,200 F, hot enough to melt some types of glass.”

Heat guns offer many great benefits. They can be used on many surfaces and can quickly heat up to their max temperature. The drawbacks they face mostly involve safety. Holding a device in your hand that is scorching hot can be dangerous if you aren’t careful.

Hot air guns have a large variety of uses. They can be used for removing labels or stickers, paint stripping, applying or removing a vinyl car wrap, window tinting, thawing out frozen pipes or devices, shrink wrapping and shrinking plastic.
