Counter : Avantgarde 340
Avantgarde is a family of thermoplastic counters made by using cotton fabrics and polyester
Avantgarde is produced with APP adhesive on both sides.
It has been conceived to obtain a perfect pre-moulding with an extraordinary shape retention.
The counter is put between upper and lining, then moulded by a special moulding machine.
Advisable standard working conditions:
• Temperature of the last : from 130 to 150°C according to the type of lining and
upper used (natural or synthetic).
• Contact time: from 10 to 15 seconds (higher temperature allows shorter contact
The following cold stabilization (given by the above mentioned special machine, with two
stations) gives a very well moulded counter.
Avantgarde is specially suitable to be pre-moulded by the modern automatic moulding
The perfect moulding allows an extraordinary adaptability to the last.
