More About This Product
NickelPlast-Lite™ has all of the properties of PE-LITE but with enhanced quality control. Thanks to NickelPlasts-Lite's higher polyethylene content, it has a smooth surface that makes it a wonderful sock liner. Feet easily slip into and out of a shoe with a NickelPlast-Lite orthosis.
NickelPlast™ is a high-strength expanded orthotic material of outstanding uniformity and superior working characteristics. Higher strength comes from the judicious alloying of ethylene vinyl
acetate and polyethylene.
NickelPlast is tough and tear-resistant. It resists bottoming out and
offers a resilient and rubbery quality not found in the simpler,
cross-linked polyethylene materials like AliPlast and Plastazote®. It is
easy-to-work. Heated in just a few minutes from 300° to 350°F, it
becomes soft and yields easily to complex molding and shaping.
Use NickelPlast where long wear, resilience and easy fabrication are
necessary. PTB liners, insoles, and foot orthotic postings are just a
few possible applications.
