Add these Kevlar Fibers to your Equilox (single-use-jar)to help strengthen the mixture for Hoof Repair.
Each jar contains approximately a tablespoon of loose fibres. Doc A mixes approx 1/2 tsp of loose kevlar fibres per 1 oz jar of Equilox.
Mix the fibres in the resin base anytime before adding the accelerant. (Mix with a tongue depressor or similar, as is supplied with our Equilox Jars. (Note Equilox is available in either a 1 or 2-oz single-use jar, in either tan or black).
The fibres increase the patch strength by almost 50%. Note you can cut the fibres yourself from our COBRASOX Kevlar Patches, but they are tough to cut without special KEVLAR scissors.
Note - Doc does not recommend mixing loose fibres with Equilox or using a Patch (whether Cobrasox, Polyester, Spectra or other) because it's redundant, making it more difficult to contour the patches. He uses Equilox either with the strengthening Kevlar Fibers or with a reinforcing Fabric (Cobrasox, Polyester, Spectra or Other) to optimize the strength and support of the repair.
Similarly, these fibres are not necessary when gluing on a Sound Horse Cuffed shoe, and they are not used with urethane repair products because the curing time is too fast.
FYI - you can drive shoeing nails through Equilox patches whether used alone, with these fibers, or any of our patch materials, especially within the first 4 hours of applying a new patch. We'll have a resource page coming soon.
