PREFERRED THERMOPLASTIC WHITE

Sheets sold individually

Our most versatile splinting material can be used by novice or experienced splinters alike

Resistance to Stretch:

Minimum to moderate resistance to stretch,  Tolerates minimum to moderate handling during splint moulding

Handle on a horizontal plane and form splint in a gravity-assisted position,  Gentle, smooth motions yield superior results

Drape:

Moderate drape with only light to moderate pressure,  Contours are quick to form

Memory:

Minimum to moderate memory,  Splints can be modified a few times with out thinning,  Requires less handling and maintains contours while cooling

Rigidity:

Moulded splints have a moderate rigidity,  A circumferential splint is flexible enough for easy donning and doffing, yet strong enough for immobilisation

Bonding:

The unique powder coating gives a tacky feel that helps hold the material in place, without the material pulling or falling away

A wet bond will hold firmly but can be pulled apart once cooled,  Dry heating two surfaces will form a strong bond

For a permanent bond, use solvent minimally and dry heat prior to bonding

Surface Finish:

Moderate resistance to fingerprints and resists showing stains,  Smooth, self-sealing cut edges remain sealed even after reheating

Applications:

3.2mm Preferred® can be used for almost any splinting application. Use for dynamic and static splinting; for adult and paediatric positioning; and for post-burn and post-surgical care

2.4mm Preferred® is thin and lightweight, yet strong and can be used for forearm and hand- based splints. Ideal for arthritis splints, post- operative splints, and for paediatric splints when children are able to cooperate
