Yes. Just sand the existing Tuff Toe, wipe with rubbing alcohol or other solvent and re-apply.
What if I have spots where the Tuff Toe didn’t cure?
This is usually due to failure to ‘equalize the cartridge’. To fix, remove the uncured portion of the Tuff Toe and re-sand the area that needs more material including the surrounding Tuff Toe, and clean with solvent. Use another mixer tip (we provide three) and dispense a 2” line of Tuff Toe onto scratch paper in order to ensure that side A & B are reaching the tip at the same time. Apply Tuff Toe to the sanded area and it should cure.
My boot has a hole with the steel toe showing. Can I cover it with Tuff Toe?
Yes. Sand the steel and the leather toe cap. Apply a coating of Tuff Toe over just the exposed steel portion on both boots. After this is set up change mixer tips, dispense an inch line on scratch paper to make sure A and B are reaching the tip at the same time, and apply a coating of Tuff Toe over the entire toe cap. You will get a double coating on the formerly exposed steel toe area where you abuse your boot the most. Make sure to use all of the Tuff Toe for one pair of boots.
