TOE PUFFS AND COUNTERS
TOE PUFFS AND COUNTERS
These are the two components that provide a structure or skeleton to the footwear, preventing it from deforming. The toe cap is located at the toe and the heel counter at the heel. These components can be of different nature (Fabric, Plastics, Leather, etc. ….) depending on the performance required by the different types of footwear. The products in our catalog are as follows:
Extrusion Toe puffs
A stopper resulting from the extrusion of plastics wrapped in two meshes and then covered with a layer of adhesive. There are different qualities:
Soft stopper, good shape retention and good flexibility thanks to its two meshes and the type of adhesive used.
Firm and resilient top which molds very well and has exceptional shape retention. Its latest version is very ecological and sustainable as 50% of its composition comes from recycled sources.
It is the softest line in the range as it is the only one covered with an EVA layer. It has perfect shape retention and is ideal for lightweight footwear. It should be noted that 50% of its composition comes from recycled sources.
This rigid material is specially designed for oily skins as it is bonded with a TPU layer.
This flexible material is specially designed for oily skin as it is bonded with a TPU layer.
This stopper is the premium line of the range because it comes from a mass extrusion (the material is itself adhesive). It has the great advantage that the lowered area continues to stick, reactivates at low temperature and has a long working time. In addition, 35% of its composition comes from recycled sources.
Polyester fiber nonwoven fabric, impregnated with additives and pigments, and coated with adhesive layer (EVA or TPU) on both sides. We have two products in this line:
Premium product in the category due to its polyester weight and the level of glue applied on both sides, it provides a good level of rigidity.
It is the most economical version of the range. It is also a rigid buttress, but with lower performance.
Counterbond from the result of an extrusion of plastics wrapped in two meshes and covered with adhesive. Different materials are available:
This material is the leader of the range and the product with the best performance of the entire line of buttresses. It consists of a mass extrusion in which thermoplastics, mesh and TPU glue are mixed. It has the great advantage that when lowered it continues to stick, it reactivates at low temperatures and its working time is long lasting. In addition, 35% of its composition comes from recycled sources.
It consists of a coextrusion of thermoadhesives and then the mesh and adhesives are added on both sides. 44% of its composition comes from recycled sources.
Premium product of the range specially designed for Orthopedics. It has all the advantages of mass extrusion, but having a very special filler allows it to be much more moldable than the rest and allows thin edges, when molded hot with sufficient pressure, avoiding undercutting.
