Applying tape to metal in a curved, conformable pattern
Applies tape to shapes and forms quickly and easily
Provides Consistent Thickness with No Oozing, Glue Lines or Overspray
Our Scotch® ATG Adhesive Applicators offer a lightweight, portable, one-hand solution for applying adhesive transfer tape to metal, plastic, foam, paper and more. No preparation is necessary, and the applicators do not produce fumes, vapors or strong odors. Additionally, they provide consistent thickness with no mess from oozing, glue lines or aerosol-adhesive overspray. During use, the adhesive transfer tape's liner removes automatically and rewinds into the applicator. The adhesive system allows you to only use the necessary amount of tape, while providing an option for exchanging to new or previously used rolls of adhesives with different performance attributes. This applicator allows the use of 3/4" and 1/2" width rolls. The adapter enables the use of 1/2 inch (12mm) wide transfer tape when used with the ATG 700 Applicator.

Understanding the Scotch® ATG System
Scotch® ATG system has proven to be the go-to adhesive solution since the early 1970s. For light and heavy industrial applications, Scotch® ATG Adhesive Applicators are known to be convenient, reliable, versatile tools capable of attaching a wide range of materials. As a portable, hand-held solution, our ATG Adhesive Applicators apply adhesive to any shape or form, instantly bonding large and small surfaces.

With Scotch® ATG Applicators, a touch of the finger triggers a quick, controlled application of Scotch® ATG Transfer Tape at the same time as the liner rewinds into the applicator. There is no mess and no cleanup. 3M advanced acrylic adhesive bonds on contact and is formulated with a choice of properties including high temperature resistance, acid free, general purpose and high initial adhesion.

The Scotch® ATG Adhesive Transfer Tape System is a cost effective and more productive replacement to many double-sided tapes, tape applicators, as well as adhesive dots, staples and liquid adhesives. This applicator allows the ATG tape liner to rewind into the applicator as the adhesive is applied for hassle-free operation that eliminates messes and clean-up.

Customer Reviews
Scotch® ATG Adhesive Applicators & Adaptors is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tape is Defective In the past 4 days I have bought 4 rolls of tape for my ATG gun. 3 out of the 4 rolls are rolled incorrectly making them useless for my ATG gun. I'm very disappointed. I love using the gun, now I'm stuck with three rolls of tape I have to use like tear and tape

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product, but unfortunately relies on the tape The tape gun is a workhorse and a wonderful product that both my wife and I have used for probably 10 years..however, lately (about 3 years) the tapes themselves are a real pain when they don't work right which as noted in several other reviews is about half the time. I don't know what causes that adhesive to decide it wants to stick to the wrong side of the backing, but when it does, it happens often throughout the entire roll of tape. The tapes are not cheap and the process of reattaching the rolls is not simple. I don't think it has anything to do with the tape gun but everything to do with the tapes themselves, so who does one call to address that issue? It is hard to recommend a great product if it relies on another piece to work well, so in all conscience, I can't say I would recommend it until the tape issue goes back to being one where the tapes themselves work reliably like they used to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to use Not so easy to refill I bought this item about 4 years ago and really have loved it until the last time I bought refills. They appear to have the sticky on the wrong side. Basically would need to load this bacwards/upside down to use but the gun will not work that way so I am stuck applying the strips by hand which is a bummer. When working right - cuts my work time in half or more, this way takes 3 or 4 times longer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Refill tape wrong direction I use my ATG for scrapbooking and love it for this application. The main problem I have is that the tape is often rolled the wrong way and is useless. I spend a lot of money on the tape and don’t understand how one roll in a package is correct and another backwards. Now I am only able to use 50% of my purchase. This problem has been going on now for several years and it is frustrating. When will this problem be resolved because it never was like this in the beginning? I would recommend this product if it worked correctly all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adhesive rolled the wrong way I have been using the ATG fun for over 6 months now for card making and scrapbooking and love it. However, the last pack I bought the first one I tried was was told on the roll backwards so the sticky adhesive was on the wrong side so when I tried to use it there was no adhesive there. I tried the other roll in the package and it's fine. I paid $10.00 for 2 rolls and can only use 1. Otherwise I love the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drastically improves our production We've been using this gun for about 6 months now to join thin plywood sheets together. It's so much simpler and quicker than the glue-ups we used to do. Yes, it's a bit tricky at first to ensure the adhesive tape doesn't wind back onto the roller and eventually you'll figure out how to properly thread and tension the winding spool after a bit of practice. A lot of our initial issues had to do with the angle we were holding the gun at. It just takes a little practice. This gun is now a solid piece of our assembly processes and has worked flawlessly since we learned how to use it. We love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ATG Gun adhesive flaw How can I say this. I was initially so excited to get my ATG gun! It worked beautifully. Then, I started having problems with the adhesive clinging to the wrong side of the release paper. I worked my way through trying everything I could to make it work until, out of frustration, I started with a new refill! The next three refills were defective and now I am about to throw the thing across the room! I can no longer tolerate the frustration with this product! I see many people have posted solutions on You Tube, which indicates this is an ongoing and wide spread problem! Your company has let down the consumer. Ugh!
