Unlike many other “water-based” or “VOC-free” glues, Aquilim 325 is completely free of any solvents except water. The easiest way to check this is by smell: many other water-based glues (Latex) contain ammonium with its pungent smell, and many “VOC-free” glues still smell like solvents (they contain Acetone, a solvent that is not classified as a VOC, but is still flammable and hazardous material). Compared to this, Aquilim does not smell at all, is not flammable, and does not require any special handling or storage for hazardous materials.

“Because I don’t do orthopedic work I haven’t tried this glue variation, but I’m beginning to receive requests for it. I only have it in 16 and 32 ounces right now, but if there’s a demand I’ll stock the 64 ounce and .8 gallon as well. ”

    I use this adhesive throughout my boot making now. Except for the heel cap, or sole saver neoprene rubber products. I even use it for celastic toe box materials. Not only is it a great contact adhesive, it also seems to work well as a wet glue as long as I let something I put together this way dry overnight before moving forward.

    For soles on boots, first, I put a heavy coat on the soles and let it dry completely. I then soak the soles in water for about an hour. After soaking, I then remove soles from the water, dry them off with a towel and place them in a plastic shopping bag. I then cover the bottom of the boot with another heavy coat of adhesive and set them aside. I let them both, the boots and the soles sit over night. Then next morning, I take the soles from the plastic bags and lay them out and heat the adhesive side with a hair dryer till they’re really warm, and then do the same to the boots. After this, I install the soles on the boots in the normal way. This has worked very well for me.

    I use a combination of leather and celastic for the toe boxes of my boots. For the celastic, I spread the adhesive on the material and let it dry. Then I soak the celastic in acetone for about 3 minutes. Set them out and towel dry before hair drying them. I put them on the boots in the normal way. After this, I finish the toe box with leather and form it to shape.

    I hope this helps and gives incentive to those that are thinking of trying this glue. Don’t let the cost bother you either. This glue seems to go a lot farther than the solvent glues.
