How to use this product

  1. Ensure surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt or grease. Remove cap and carefully pierce seal.
  2. For larger area repairs such as shoe soles, we recommend you use the contact bond method:
  • For quick and even bonding, apply to one surface only, press together and pull apart. Keep apart until the adhesive film is almost dry (approx. 10 – 20 minutes).
  • Carefully line up surfaces to be joined and press surfaces firmly together. Bonds immediately on contact. Clamping may be necessary in some applications.
  1. For smaller areas, either use the contact method as above, or join with a wet bond:
  • Apply Shoe Glue to one surface only and immediately press together. Lightly clamp or hold until dry.
  1. Allow adhesive to achieve maximum bond strength (24 hours) before wearing your repaired shoe/s.
  2. Wipe nozzle clean and replace cap immediately after use. Clean up application tools and excess adhesive with turps before it dries.

Handy tips

  • A piece of plastic from a takeaway container makes a good applicator for shoe soles.
  • Bulldog clips are handy to use for clamping straps and other small areas.
  • Pack includes removable nozzle for easy application.
