Thrust Ratios

Wondering which gun is right for your job?

- Thrust ratio measures the force applied on the tube piston with each trigger pull.
 
- The thicker the gunned material, the higher the ratio should be.
 
- Typical caulking guns run from a low of 3:1 thrust ratio up to 18:1 thrust ratio.
 
- Dual component epoxies, polyurethanes, construction adhesives all require high ratio guns; anywhere from 18:1 thrust ratio to 26:1 thrust ratio.
 
 
So, how do our guns rate?

- Our DIY models are anywhere from 5:1 to 12:1 thrust ratio.
 
- Our Contractor Grade models are all around 10:1 to 16:1 thrust ratio.
 
- Our Professional Grade models are 18:1 and 26:1 thrust ratio.
