GLUE-ON-SHOE HOOF REPAIR

PLEASE NOTE
  • Vettec products are best used between 65° and 85° F
    (18° to 29° C).
  • The following procedures are best accomplished wearing latex or rubber gloves.
  • Do not burn or “Hot Shoe” this product.
  • Use only recommended Vettec mixing tips.
CARTRIDGE PREPARATION
  1. To open the cartridge, remove the tip at line with nippers. Insert cartridge into dispensing gun, label side up.
  2. Before attaching the mixing tip, equalize the cartridge by squeezing out a small amount to ensure that both sides are dispensing evenly. Attach a mixing tip by pressing and twisting clockwise.
  3. When finished, do not release the pressure with the lever on the back of the dispenser. Remove the mixing tip immediately, discard, and replace the cap. The pressure can now be released. Caps are available from your dealer.
  4. For additional applications, re-equalize the cartridge, and attach a new tip.
SHOE PREPARATION
  1. Clips are highly recommended for stability and accurate placement of the shoe. Have clips set before gluing.
  2. Drill a 5/16” hole between the second and third nail holes of both branches, beveled on the ground side. If possible, enlarge the other nail holes also using a drill or pritchel.
  3. Grind or rasp the top of the shoes to remove oxidation and roughen the surface. Clean with denatured alcohol to remove oil, grease, slag, dirt, and dry thoroughly.
  4. Place 3 to 4 Adhesive-Spacers (REF # 46025) or pieces of wooden matchsticks around the web of the shoe to maintain approximately 1/8” space for Adhere.
    Optional: Apply Duct tape to the last 1” to 1 1/2” of the branches. This will prevent Adhere from locking the heels.
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.
    Note About Cleaning: Only if hoof is oily, wipe the affected areas with a cloth moistened with DENATURED ALCOHOL being careful not to saturate the hoof.
    Dry thoroughly. DO NOT USE ACETONE!
GLUEING SHOES
  1. Apply Adhere to the shoe approx. 3/8’’ thick and the width of the shoe.
  2. Quickly and accurately place the shoe. Adhere will set in approximately one minute.
  3. Keep the hoof elevated taking care not to move the shoe for 3 1/2 minutes until the Adhere cures.
    Hint: Wrap the hoof & shoe with pallet wrap after 1 minute and set down. Remove wrap later.

HOOF WALL REPAIR

PLEASE NOTE
  • 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 1/4 inch. After the initial cure (2-3 minutes), apply to the desired level and shape as necessary.
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.
    Note: Only if hoof is oily, wipe the affected areas with a cloth moistened with DENATURED ALCOHOL being careful not to saturate the hoof.
    Dry thoroughly. DO NOT USE ACETONE!
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 beding.
  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. Contouring Plastic (REF #46904) can be utilized to push the material into the void. Leave in place until Adhere cures, then peel off.
  7. Allow a working time of 55 seconds for molding and shaping.
  8. Allow 7 to 8 minutes for a full cure, then shape by trimming and rasping toward the hoof.
  9. Nail shoe on. Nails will penetrate without damaging the repair.
  10. If necessary, after rasping and shoeing, fill any voids or holes
COLD CONDITIONS (Below 65° F)
  • Failure to keep the hooves, shoes, and Adhere warm will dramatically slow the cure time.
    Example: At 32° F the cure time advances 7 - 8 minutes.
  • Store the cartridges in an insulated “cooler” warmed with microwaveable heat pads or 1 to 2 tightly capped gallon jugs filled with hot water.
  • In freezing temperatures, 32° F or less, the shoes must be warmed to keep condensation from forming on them and preventing the bond.
HOT CONDITIONS (Above 85° F)
  • Adhere will set very quickly. To retard the set time, store the material in an insulated cooler with 1 or 2 freezer packs.
