Keratex Hoof Hardener is a gentle acting chemical formulation which forms additional intermolecular bonds between molecules of keratin through the process of cross-linking and works by actually improving the structure of the horn itself. It is neither a varnish or resin layer, it leaves no visible coating, and the treated hoof is able to breathe and function naturally.
With the active formulation of Keratex Hoof Hardener, the quality of existing horn can be improved chemically within just a few days. Obviously, cracks will not disappear, but the horn around them will be strengthened to resist further movement so they can grow out. Once treated, the horn will also be better able to support nails so shoes stay on better.
Because of the hardening and strengthening effect of Keratex Hoof Hardener, it is superb for use on shod and unshod horses.
