GB481 VOC – Vidoglue

Bostik GB481 is a Polychloroprene contact cement designed specifically for hand lasting of leather uppers to insole boards. It is yellow / amber in colour and is brushable thick in consistency. It has an excellent heat-resistance coupled with high initial bond strength. These two properties ensure excellent performance during heat-setting of freshly lasted uppers.

Technical Data

Bostik GB481 is brush applied to both upper and insole board. The lasting margin should be minimum of 10mm. After a suitable drying period (15 – 20 minutes) uppers may be lasted by hand. Heat setting at maximum 130°C may follow if required.

Bostik GB481 is used in the footwear industry for hand lasting operations on all types of porous materials, particularly leather.
