A caulking gun is a hand tool with a tube or cartridge filled with material that is used to fill holes and cracks in the house. Caulk binds a variety of materials, including metal, glass, wood, and ceramic, and can be made of silicone or latex. Caulking Guns are typically sold in tubes. Caulking and sealant guns are made to hold a cartridge firmly in place while sealing, allowing for a smooth, controlled, and straight line. They’re also known as silicone guns or mastic guns, and they come in a variety of sizes and designs to fit a variety of cartridges.
The DRIPLESS CH200 smooth hex rod cradle frame caulking gun has a steel half-barrel frame that fits 10 oz. Cartridges and has a 10:1 thrust ratio for use with latex, acrylic, and silicone. The smooth pressure rod requires less force and is quieter than a ratchet-style pressure rod. The hook on the back allows it to hang on a ladder, and a seal puncture tool and a spout cutter are built into the side of the gun for opening cartridges without a knife. Caulking guns, also called caulk or cartridge guns, dispense a controlled flow of products such as caulk, sealants, and adhesives from a tube or cartridge. A manual caulking gun consists of a frame which holds the tube, a trigger, and a rod which moves forward when the trigger is depressed, dispensing the product. Manual caulking guns have a thrust ratio; the higher the thrust ratio, the easier it is to dispense the caulk, sealant, or adhesive.
