Perfect Hoof Wear (PHW) is a non-cast, 100% polyester multidirectional fabric tape impregnated with a unique water activated polyurethane resin that remains slick allowing for a smooth application. Wraps measure 2"x 4 Yards (5cm x3.65m). Each comes in a hermetically sealed foil pouch stamped with a lot number and expiration date. PHW poly wraps have a 2 year shelf life, when stored following manufactures recommendations. Each wrap is supplied with (3) proprietary stainless steel anchors. Anchors eliminate the need for messy expensive glues. Set up time is about 4 minutes, giving you sufficient time to apply. It sets up without producing excessive heat, becoming only warm to the touch. Once the resin begins to set there is no need for gloves, making for a very clean application. Trimming of the wrap is easy, with no need to rasp the finished application. When used for added protection the application is as easy as trim, wrap, ride.
With tens of thousands of Perfect Hoof Wear being sold over the past 10 years, the results speak for themselves.

We've made it easy to stock and use PHW by assembling all necessary components into one value added kit. The PHW Standard Kit comes with four (4) Poly Single Hoof Wraps with anchors, a reusable impression pad, and four pair of gloves. If you are doing a pair of hooves kits are an excellent way to assure that you will have the needed product for that follow-up application
Screwdriver: You will need a #2 Phillips head screwdriver, we recommend using a stubby (short) screwdriver over a long one. A short screwdriver is much easier to control. Many of the hoof care providers using PHW have found that an economical rechargeable power screwdriver works well. If you choose to use a powered screwdriver be sure to purchase one that has adjustable torque settings, this will enable you to set the torque low to prevent over driving the anchors.

PHW Impression Pad: We have found no better way to make an impression, pun intended. The PHW closed cell impression pad has been field tested for more than ten years. They are sold in pairs. We also include a single impression pad in the PHW Standard Kit. These pads make it possible to achieve superior results. Follow this link to a video showing their effectiveness. Video
