For the shoe to set it is recommended that the liquid and powder is warm. Heated liquid can accelerate the application of a block mix. This is why we have a heater box on all crushes. We use a electric dehorning iron to heat the box and a rode in the iron my be used in heating the liquid first when in the shoe before adding the power to accelerate the reaction of heating.
