Plastic Welding Practice Kit - Gain Hands-on Experience in Plastic Welding

A proverb that holds true in every aspect of life – 'Practice Makes Perfect' – it's often said casually, but in the end, it applies to almost everything, including plastic welding. Solid seams are fundamental when creating an adhesive horseshoe or modifying a shoe with extensions.

However, to ensure that the weld seams on an adhesive horseshoe are stable and durable, a certain level of proficiency in plastic welding is necessary. To acquire this skill and avoid conducting initial attempts on actual horseshoes, we offer you a more affordable practice kit with baseplate dummies.

Contents of the Practice Kit for Ensuring a Reliable Adhesive Horseshoe:

  • Baseplate Dummies (random assortment of different sizes and shapes)
  • Adhesive Collars 'Easy' with regular surface

Depending on the version, the practice kit contains either 2 pieces (Mini) or 8 pieces (Standard) each.

Why are the Practice Kits so Affordable?

Whenever a different model or size is produced, it requires an adjustment of our machines. During the initial runs, 'dummy horseshoes' without a metal core are created to check the machine settings. These dummies have been regranulated until now. We have found that they serve excellently as practice material for plastic welding. With our practice kit, we aim to provide you with the opportunity to practice the welding of horseshoes and adhesive collars more affordably.

Please observe our general safety instructions for all work involving our products. Additionally, when plastic welding, consider the guidelines provided by the manufacturer of your hot air device. We recommend conducting plastic welding outdoors. If this is not possible, always ensure adequate ventilation.
