(12 customer reviews)



Porcelain dolls, steam locomotives, old cars… People’s fondness for collector’s items make gluing an everyday job, especially when there are children around. There is always something to repair, fit, fix or make. This Bosch PKP 18 E glue gun makes that easier than ever before. It is easy to use and joins virtually all materials permanently and securely. The easy-to-operate trigger enables you to achieve fine glue channels–ideal for laying cables, fitting decorative strips or even performing sealing and smaller grouting jobs as well as many other jobs in and around the home. Gluing has never been so easy.

Bosch invented the Constant-Electronic technology to achieve perfect gluing results for precise as well as large-area applications. Due to this technology, heating elements are electronically controlled so that glue is applied with a constant and optimal working temperature of 200 degrees Celsius. Hence, items are attached with an even glue strip for a lasting connection. With the delivered extra-long nozzle, even fiddly jobs in hard-to-reach areas are completed easily. Thanks to the gluing capacity of up to 20 g/min, users work not just with perfect finishing, but also extremely quickly. Thanks to this technology, a heating time of just 7 minutes means users can start working with the Bosch PKP 18 E immediately.

The PKP 18 E’s mechanical feed system ensures sensitive metering and targeted, rapid application. In addition, it also avoids dripping of glue to let the user work precisely and cleanly. For interruptions, Bosch equipped the glue gun with a stable wire stand making it safe to set the tool down without dripping.

  1. andrew k.

    This gun seems to be made well. Designed in Germany, made in Romania. All the other brands of guns are made in china. Not that all Chinese made products are bad but good luck knowing which ones are. If Bosch had it made in china I would buy it because it would more than likely be made to there standards of quality. The name Bosch says it all.

    This Gun is excellent. It works really smooth and precise. The gun is Multi voltage 115 – 230V at 50/60Hz. It was build for Germany as the German Power plug indicates. Adapter for US was in the box. I also noticed the Steinel label on the box (see picture). Steinel is actually a very reputable German manufacturer of commercial hot glue guns and around for many years. The attached picture of their website showed, this Bosch glue gun is actually a “Steinel Gluefix 3002” just in Bosch green. You can also find the original Steinel gun here on Amazon ( for $57.It appears Steinel manufactured this glue gun for Bosch in their Romania plant.

    Heats up quickly. I may still be learning how to use it on crafts, but still have difficulties of dealing with the drips and stray glue strings coming from the tip. But it’s kinda impossible to avoid that issue with any glue gun. Overall a good gun and makes my crafting quick.

  4. Jack

    BESIDES the fact that it comes with a plug that wont work in any recepticles in the USA, it constantly drips glue while plugged in. It does work very good, puts ample glue where you want it, easy to control.

    There are many sub par glue guns out there. This one is nice quality and feels like a haven duty tool in your hand.

    Cher, mais efficaceCertes, plus cher que les pistolets d’entré de gamme qu’on trouve partout (et que j’ai aussi),mais si on peut se le permettre, il est facilement explicable.Rien qu’en main on ressent une meilleure qualité générale,ca ne couine pas, ne grince pas, à l’air solide,l’embout précis est très pratique et n’a pas de problème de chauffe.En parlant de chauffe, ca vient assez vite et fort.Bref, il fait la même chose que les moins chers, mais en mieux / plus agréable,à vous de voir en fonction de vos besoins et fréquence d’utilisation.

    La mejorLo digo con conocimiento de causa, ya que es la segunda que tengo exactamente igual que la primera la cual me duró más de 24 años pero al final se fundió la resistencia y lógicamente viendo que este producto es el mismo y se mantiene en el tiempo durante años he decidido comprarlo nuevamente. La primera que tuve he de decir que ya no solo es que durase más de 24 años sino que ha funcionado a la perfección todo el tiempo y además dándole muchísimo uso, pero nada es eterno.Desde luego si sigue ahí a la venta es por su calidad, funciona muy bien, tiene la ventaja de la boquilla larga y el producto en general es de muchísima calidad no me extraña que sigan fabricándolo desde hace tantísimos años. Animo de verdad a la gente que buscan una buenísima pistola de cola que se anime por esta.

    Fungerar bra – smidigt med den långa öppningenFungerar bra – smidigt med den långa öppningen för att komma åt och få in limmet i mindre öppningar.
