'Onest Andy Posted May 20, 2016 Report Share Posted May 20, 2016 Hello all, Having a problem with a pair of boots bought into me for sole replacement. Unfortunately I can not find any form of maker's name or mark on the boots anywhere. As i began to grind away the warn sole I noticed that the material melted away much like the old Polyveldt units of the 80's used to. i also noticed that the ground surface was incredibly sticky to touch even when totally cool. Experience told me to stop as I knew straight away there was likely to be an issue with bonding. I decided to test sticking to the small ground down area before going any further. Materials tried: Rubber and PVC Adhesives tried: Bondfast, Bostik PA5050 and Renia Multicolle. Sadly none of the above combinations have been successful. So now I'm asking if anyone else has experienced this problem and if there might be a solution. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
