    COMPOSITION
    ___________________________________________________

    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. This material provides a very thin and flexible support for toe box and reinforcement use. The adhesive offers superior bonding strength to all upper and lining materials including the most difficult uppers such as high oil content leathers.

     

    WORK PREPARATION
    ___________________________________________________

    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.
