A Glue-On System for
Alternative Hoof Protection
RB-Carbon “powered by Duplo”
The RB-Carbon Team consists of Wolfgang Busch and Christian Roncassaglia - both passionate farriers and developers who have racked their brains over a new innovative glue-on system over the last few years.
After an interesting but finally successful test period of 18 months, we are able to start the serial production of these new innovative glue-on tabs “powered by Duplo”.
The requirements for the new system were that the final product should be easy to apply and of long durability. Both targets have been reached.
In the following video, Wolfgang and Christian explain how to apply the new glue-on system and what you have to consider while doing this.
The RB-Carbon Team recommend the following material for the application:
Degreaser (Isopropanol 99%, no Acetone) in order to degrease the glue-on tabs and the hoof
Sand Paper (80 – 120 grain size) in order to roughen the glued surface on the hoof
Cotton Cloth or kitchen roll in order to wipe away the degreaser from the hoof and the inner side of the glue-on tabs
Cyanoacrylate Adhesive – available in our shop!
Hot-Air Gun with adjustable airflow and temperature (300-600 °C / 572 – 1112 °F) and a fitting reduction nozzle of 9 mm - available in our shop!
Angle Grinder or Belt Sander – in order to bevel the lateral welded seams and in order to adjust the horseshoe
Board with a Notch to securely fixate the glue-on tab while welding it to the horseshoe
Paper to sketch the outline of the hoof
Protective Gloves – above all when you are working with the horseshoe
Single-Use Gloves (e.g. nitrile or vinyl) - when you are working with the degreaser or the adhesive
When it comes to glued hoof protection, it is important that the glued connection is stable so that you won't lose the horseshoe. Nevertheless - in order to minimize the risk of injuries for the horse - this connection should still be flexible enough so that it will break in case of emergency.
Therefore, the RB Carbon Glue-on Tabs are available in different sizes.
