SATRA remains open during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and has organised additional online resources and a special webinar programme
Webinar - Sole-bonding Adhesives in Footwear
Thursday 11th June 2020
This event is available to SATRA members only
10.00 and 16.00 BST
Sole bond adhesion is a well-established process in shoe-making, however it is important that the risks of any potential sole bond issues are regularly assessed and monitored. Poor sole bond can lead to quality issues, causing customer returns and an associated loss of reputation as well as potential personal injury claims.
This webinar presented by SATRA's footwear expert Hannah Boughey is intended to cover the basics of sole bond adhesion. She will look at the key characteristics of common sole bonding adhesives, as well as some of the relevant surface pre-treatments.
The main test methods used to assess adhesive bonds will also be discussed, including pre-production testing with new materials, as well as the finished product.
