  2. Slide the red oval finger ring over top of cartridge and seat at cartridge base.
  3. Use the red plunger to squeeze out a small amount of material to ensure both sides are dispensing evenly.
  4. Attach mixing tip by pressing and twisting clockwise.
  5. For additional applications, remove old tip, re-equalize the cartridge, and attach another mix tip.
            

HOOF PREPARATION

  1. Trim, rasp, and level hoof as normal. Remove any weak or soft material, especially at the white line area.
  2. Dry hoof thoroughly using a heat gun or hair dryer. Do not overheat.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

  1. Trim, rasp, balance, and clean the hoof around the damaged area.
  2. Using a hoof knife or Dremel™ tool, rout out the damaged areas.
  3. Create an undercut on the hoof wall. 
  4. Protect the coronary band with hoof tape or damp gauze.
  5. Clean and thoroughly dry the prepped area per instructions. If wet conditions exist, horse should be stalled overnight with dry bedding. 
  6. Dispense Adhere directly into damaged area over-filling around the repair and onto sound hoof wall. Do not feather or "thin-out" the material around the edges. This will slow the set time and can lead to failure. Cure time 4-6 minutes. 
  7. Rasp to finish. If necessary, fill any voids or holes using Adhere for a cosmetic finish.
          

IMPORTANT

  • Areas of wetness, bleeding, or infection should not be covered. Once healed, commence using the product.
  • Adhere can be applied with the shoe on or off, but will bond to the shoe. A coating of oil or petroleum jelly to the top of shoe will prevent this from occurring. Take care not to get any on the area of the hoof being repaired.
  • Adhere may not bond to hooves that have been heavily treated with products containing: oils, grease, pine tar, etc. In these instances, a thorough denatured alcohol scrub and drying should be performed to ensure adhesion.
  • For a large application where heat transfer to the hoof is a concern (above 150 °F), limit the initial layer to ¼ inch. After 3 minutes, apply to the desired level and shape as necessary.

BENEFITS

  • Adhere’s fast set time, flexibility, and odor free formulation make it the perfect choice for both large and small hoof repairs. Adhere is the choice when nailing.
  • Adhere’s strength provides stability while not covering areas of wetness, bleeding or infection.
  • Adhere is perfect for building up thin, shelly walls before using it to glue on shoes.
  • Adhere’s fast set time and strength are a winning combination for gluing on steel, aluminum or polyurethane horseshoes.
