How Long to Dry?

Speed-Sew dries very fast depending on the application.  The thicker the application of Speed-Sew the longer it takes to dry.  If you rub a little bit on your fingers Speed-Sew will dry in less then a minute.
I would say the maximum amount of time for Speed-Sew to dry would be 30 minutes.  The majority of uses should allow Speed-Sew to dry in 10 minutes or less.[

How Do I Remove?

Speed-Sew can be removed by using perchloroethylene. Perchloroethylene is normally obtained through your local dry cleaner.
We have also heard that Speed-Sew can be removed using Canola oil & butter.

A product called Stain Devils Spot Remover also helps remove Speed-Sew. It contains Olefin, Polypropylene, and Polyolefin.
“The best thing we have found to remove any of the tape or speed sew is Zo-Eze (it is an adhesive remover) and will not leave behind the goooie tacky feeling that other adhesive removers do. (such as goo gone or others you buy at the store). The only place we have found it happens to be from vendors or pet distributors, not at your local stores.”
“Strip Ease is the solvent I prefer for glue removal.
Speed-Sew may be removed with water if wet.

Is Speed-Sew Latex-based?
YES

Does Speed Sew freeze?
Speed Sew should survive the freeze-thaw cycle.  If cold enough it will freeze.

What is the best procedure to speed-sew a Sheltie puppy’s ears tipped and then how do you take it off without hurting the dog?

Puppy Ears http://www.echowyn.com/Ears.html

Boy, it is so much easier to show someone than try and explain, but let me see… first, it depends on if the sheltie is a puppy, young adult, or older adult.

With puppies, around the age of 8wks, we start bracing ears on top of the head to help with a good ear set.  we pull the two ears together and place a small dab of speed sew on the fur between the two ears this brings the ears to the top of the head and will help hold or create a good ear set. As the puppies continue to grow the ears do all kinds of funny things especially while teething. Some will tip low, and look like hound ears, others will just stay pricked and not tip at all. For those that do not tip, several breeders will do these several different ways.  I use either the ear tape or moleskin in the ear (you must make sure the ear is cleaned with alcohol first) one either little piece of this is attached to the inside of the ear, I use a small amount of speed sew on the tip to bend over and glue to the tape or moleskin.  In several cases, this must continue to be done during the teething process (otherwise who knows what the ears will look like).  Others, just us a small amount of speed sew and attach it to the fur towards the bottom of the ear. The best thing we have found to remove any of the tapes or speed sew is Zo-Eze (it is an adhesive remover) and will not leave behind the goooie tacky feeling that other adhesive removers do. (such as goo gone or others you buy at the store).  The only place we have found it happens to be from vendors or pet distributors, not at your local stores.
