1. An applicator tip for applying fluid to a surface of an object comprising:

  • a base formed of a thermoplastic material having a substantially planar upper first surface and an opposing lower second surface;

    at least one aperture extending through said base;

    a fluid supply port operatively connected to said second surface of said base, said supply port being in communication with said at least one aperture in said base;

    a fluid application material positioned on said first surface of said base, said fluid application material being positioned to receive fluid that passes through said aperture from said fluid supply port, said fluid application material being positioned to apply said fluid to said surface on said object, a first portion of said fluid application material being secured to a first portion of said first surface of said base, which first portion of said base is caused to be molten or semimolten and fuses to said first portion of said fluid application material; and

    a second portion of said fluid application material and a second portion of said first planar surface of said base forming a fluid passage space for receiving said fluid wherein pressure from said fluid in said space causes said second portion of said fluid application material to move away from said second portion of said base such that said fluid flows through said space and substantially saturates said fluid application material.
