These tips are going to be beneficial for creating a posting in the most efficient way that will save time and materials.
The first step is to grind the plantar surface of the device. This will enhance the surface area and create a better bond between surfaces through the glue.
Bevel the edges of the posting material. This increases flexibility in the material to be folded over and prevents unfolding.
Barge the device surface as well as the posting surface. Place posting material in oven for a few seconds to help dry the glue but to also make the material flexible and malleable. Place the posting on the device, take it to a sturdy straight edge (table edge) and firmly push the foam against the edge starting at one end. This technique helps remove any air bubbles and secures the bond between the foam and plastic.
Take the air hose and blow onto the foam to quickly cool down the material. This prevents the edges from unfolding itself.
