Instructions
Sil-Pak 180cc Cartridge
 
 

PLEASE NOTE BEFORE APPLYING PRODUCT
• Vettec products are best used between 65° and 85° F (18° to 29° C). Temperature will affect the set time.
  See Cold & Hot Conditions below.
• Areas of wetness or bleeding should not be covered. Once healed, commence using products.
• Sil-Pak 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.
• Product may not bond to hooves that have been heavily treated with products containing: oils, grease, pine tar,
etc. In these instances a light
denatured alcohol scrub and drying should be performed to ensure adhesion.
• The following procedures are best-accomplished wearing latex or rubber gloves.
• Do not burn or
“Hot Shoe” this product.

 

COLD CONDITIONS (Below 65° F)
Failure to keep the hooves, shoes, and product warm will dramatically slow the cure time.
  Example: At 32° F the cure time advances to approximately 2-3 minutes.
Do not microwave the cartridge or place it in water. Store the cartridges in an insulated “cooler” warmed with
microwavable 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)
• Product will set very quickly. To slow the set time, if needed store the material in an insulated cooler with 1 or 2
freezer packs.
NOTE: During hot weather conditions, product may cure at a higher temperature. If applying close to sensitive
tissue, product may be applied in layers to reduce heat.

 

CARTRIDGE PREPARATION
1. To open the cartridge, cut the tip at line with sharp 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.
3. Attach a mixing tip by pressing and twisting clockwise.
4. When finished, do not release the pressure with the lever on the back of the dispenser. Remove the mixing
   tip immediately, discard and apply the cap. The pressure can now be released. Extra caps are available from
   your dealer, if needed.
5. For additional applications, re-equalize the cartridge and attach a new tip.

 

HOOF PREPARATION
1. Trim and balance the hoof and conservatively pare the sole. Remove any weak or soft material that will
   exfoliate in the next 2-3 weeks, especially at the white line area.

2. Using a hoof knife trim and clean the frog, bars and commissures. Remove all loose sole and dirt with a
   wire brush.
3. Have all materials ready before proceeding to the next step.
4. Holding sole upward
dry hoof thoroughly using a heat gun for 30-45 seconds. Do not overheat. Keep heat
   source approximately 6 inches away from sole.
    NOTE: All hooves contain natural moisture and must be dried exactly in the manner described above.
   This step is critical for the product to achieve the appropriate bond to the sole.

 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE - WITH PADS
1. If open at heels: Place mixing tip under the pad at the heel and fill to back of the pad.
2.
If there is no access: Pre-drill a 5/16 inch hole in the pad near the apex of the frog and nail into position under
    the shoe. Place mixing tip against the hole and dispense until filled to the back of the pad. Cover the hole with
    a small piece of duct tape.
3. Once set, in approximately 2 minutes, release the hoof. Replace mixing tip and repeat process as necessary.

4. Trim any excess material.

 

For professional use only. Keep out of reach of children.
