TP BLOCK blue XXL is made from 100% polyurethane, the material is highly abrasion resistant but is flexible for excellent comfort during the walk. The polyurethane is widely used by Tecnoplastica Perletti in the production of insoles for trotting horses and equine farrier to replace the traditional metal irons.
The TP BLOCK blue XXL can be applied with all polyurethane adhesives in commerce. The small cylindrical ridges maintain a constant distance from the surface of hoof, allowing best adhesion performance. The thickness of glue remains uniform function also in case of sudden movements of the animal or excessive pressure of the operator.
Resistance & Grip
The TP BLOCK blue XXL is made of high resistance polyurethane and proven on more disparate types of flooring (gratings cement, full cement, rubber, litter). The consumption is insignificant and even after three weeks, the thickness remains unchanged, even in contact with the more abrasive and hard surfaces. Hence, the TP BLOCK blue XXL ensures a superior support sensitivity and adhesion. Even on wet or slippery surfaces the cow or cattle maintain a perfect grip on the ground unreachable with normal wooden block or rubber.
The average time of stay on the animal is three weeks with a maximum of over two or three months. The picture above shows a TP BLOCK blue XXL glued on a claw.
Instructions for use

Heat the hoof with a heating gun or hair dryer. Now, apply two parallel strips of glue on the TP® BLOCK and place immediately on hoof aligning the straight side with the inner wall, leaving 0.5 cm protruding besides the heel. Check the correct positioning, speed up the glue dry process with a heating gun or hair dryer and release the cow.
