ENGO Patch and ShearBan Installation Tip - Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc.

For optimal results, particularly when applying ENGO Blister Relief Patches or ShearBan to hiking boots, hockey skates, military boots, or any shoe linings that are difficult to adhere to, apply a little heat to the patch surface after it’s applied to the shoe or insole. The pressure sensitive adhesive softens with heat (we recommend a hair dryer), creating a strong bond between the patch and the material fibers of the shoe or insole. The same results are achieved during wear, with the adhesive softening to create a better bond, but heat will speed up the process.

When fabric surfaces are particularly rough or significantly contoured, just 10-15 seconds of heat, followed by pressing firmly around the patch surface will ensure that ENGO & ShearBan low-friction patches properly adhere to footwear for long-lasting protection from friction & shear.
