Benzoin and Leukotape
When using benzoin with leukotape, how long do I wait before applying the tape? Does the benzoin have to be tacky, or can I apply the tape right away?Cheers
Exact time depends on thickness of application but wait until the Benzoin is tacky for best adhesion. Applying tape too early does not let it set up properly.
I always let it tack up. Only takes a few seconds.
The book Fixing Your Feet by John Vonhof recommends 3 minutes.
Thanks a lot - just what I needed.Cheers
