    A proprietary blend of resins with a polyester backer on one side and a hot melt adhesive on the other. This construction best aligns with factory processing for most sport shoe and dress shoe manufacturing. The adhesive offers superior bonding strength to all upper and lining materials including the most difficult uppers such as high oil content leathers.



    CUTTING: SporToe can be cut in vertical or horizontal direction. This will allow for optimum cutting yields.

    HEAT ACTIVATION: Recommend Bond Line temperature of 80°C but product is designed to work within a range of 80°C -90°C.

    COLD MOLD: Recommend to use cold mold with temperature of -5°C and sufficient dwell time to secure minimum bond-line temperature of 30°C.

    ORIENTATION: Product has hot melt adhesive on one side and a polyspun backer on the other. It can be bonded to upper using heat press in either direction between upper and lining.



    This product is eligible for Stanbee Zero Waste program and can be ordered as cut part instead of the sheet format. This allows all the cutting waste to be recycled in house and provides a greener solution.  All that is required is a DXF file and the appropriate information required for printing on the part.
