Keratex 3-Part Hoof Repair allows a horse owner to replace small areas of missing hoof with a flexible cured adhesive patch.
How It Works
This product contains a special epoxy resin, one component of which (an epoxide) combines chemically with the keratin of the hoof to allow a homogeneous repair patch to be applied to a defective hoof. In combination with a special plasticising filler powder, the product sets rapidly to a flexible artificial horn which is chemically and strongly bonded to the surrounding hoof structure – effectively becoming a part of the hoof.
The product can be applied by the average competent horse owner without special equipment. Unlike many polyurethane and other equine hoof repair products, all the user requires is in the kit with full instructions.
Keratex 3-Part Hoof Repair is supplied as a dual epoxy syringe in a kit complete with plasticizing filler, mixing tub and application spatula, sufficient to replace 50ml milling horn.
