Little or no previous knowledge of sole adhesion is required for this one day course. Delegates are introduced to simple bonding theory and learn about the main sole bonding adhesives and the adhesion process including essential material preparation.

This leads into examination of test methods for pre-production bond testing in the laboratory and proving-testing of finished shoes. Tests are demonstrated with some hands-on involvement where practicable.

Finally, additional methods are considered such as for green strength, heat resistance and ageing resistance. Lunch and morning/afternoon refreshment is provided. Full supporting notes will be provided.

Numbers will be limited so that delegates benefit fully from the practical sessions. Priority and a discount will be given to those also booking the associated ‘Overview of Solings’ day.
