Orthoplast II thermoplastic for general splinting needs: Ideal for contractures, neurological conditions, pediatrics and burns.
Good for fracture bracing and lower extremity orthosis.
Allows five to eight minutes of working time in 160° F (71° C) water.
Can be heated in an air oven at low temperature for orthotic bracing.
- Maximum resistance to stretch.
Orthoplast can be stretched and pulled around curves without thinning.
- Minimum drape with moderate memory.
Orthoplast retains its molded shape upon reheating.
- Maximum rigidity so splints will hold their shape against the pull of strong muscles or hypertonicity.
- Bonding is traditional coating with minimal tacky feel that will not adhere to bandages.
A wet bond will hold but can be pulled apart once cooled.
For a permanent bond use a solvent, dry heat and press together firmly.
- Orthoplast surface finish resists fingerprints.
