i'm sure anything is pissible.  but I don't think it's built to take the extra heat so it may not last for to long,  Could just heat up, mely and catch on fire after 10 seconds

The difference between a hot air gun and a hot air soldering iron is quite simple.

It is the difference between a flame thrower and a torch.

It is the difference between a bon fire and a stove

It is the difference between a hunk of graphite and a sharpened pencil.
