Default Should hot glue pop right off of metal?

I glued a pin inside of a bottlecap and it popped off. Usually, I use the liner kind, but these don't have a liner. Does that sound normal or was my glue just not hot enough. Thanks.

and if possible scuff your metal with scotchbrite pad or light sandpaper give the glue something better to adhere to

Yes that is normal. The metal doesn't have pores for a lack of a better term for the glue to seep into. Try scuffing up the metal it you can with sandpaper to help give it tooth and makes a better surface for the glue to stick. And if that doesn't work you may have to go to an epoxy or try E-6000

Liners or no liners?
I had NO problem with my caps that had liners. And this was just a little pin I was attaching. Good luck. Give them a little tug. My one came right off. I will try making my regular things to see what happens.

I've been working with bottlecaps for almost 2 years and the only thing I use is e6000. I do rough up the surface also. Hot glue will eventually will give way.

I used the fusion glue and it is stuck on really well.
