EASY TO APPLY & REMOVE APPLY WITH POSITIONING TAB APPLY WITH POSITIONING GUIDE CÓMO APLICAR FLAIR® TIRAS NASALES Store FLAIR® Strips at room temperature. Strips that are exposed to extreme heat or cold may damage the medical-grade adhesive and not adhere properly. If it's chilly outside and a FLAIR Strip will be used, we recommend placing the Strip inside your jacket for 5-10 minutes before applying to allow the Strip to warm up to at least room temperature. Apply FLAIR Strips at least 30 minutes prior to any activity. For best results, apply the Strips 30 minutes prior to any exercise, riding or other activity that might cause the horse to sweat. Apply Strips to a clean, dry nose. Use a clean, dry cloth, piece of vet wrap, or paper towel to remove dirt and oil prior to applying. DO NOT use water or gels on the application area. DO NOT shave the horse’s nose prior to applying. FLAIR Strips have a unique adhesive that is designed to flow into and adhere to the horse’s hair. Remove oils from the horse's hair before applying the Strip. If oils have been applied on the horse's hair, wash the horse's nose with a bit of mild dish soap, like Dawn, to help remove oils from the hair before applying your Strip. Let the hair fully dry before following the other application steps. Additional adhesives may be harmful and are NOT recommended. FLAIR Strips have a gentle adhesive that is developed for the health and safety of the horse. Take precautions during hot and humid conditions. Before applying a FLAIR Strip, it may be helpful to prep the Strip application area with isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol will help remove moisture from the hair to improve adhesion. Before applying, bend the tabbed edges to form a crease. Forming a crease on the tabbed edges of the Strip help the tabs stick to the horse's nose more securely. DO NOT touch the adhesive prior to applying the Strip. Touching the adhesive will reduce the Strip’s ability to stick to your horse. Apply FLAIR Strips two finger widths above the horse’s nostrils. This placement provides optimal support for the soft tissue of the nasal passage. DO NOT remove by pulling up or down. Peel gently, but firmly from the top corner toward the middle.Adhesive may cause slight loss of hair, as experienced with normal shedding.
