More About This Product
NickelPlast™ X-Firm So tough you can use it for
outsoling in heavy-duty shoes. It won't pack down, even in the most
rigorous application. Can be used for AK and BK socket liners.
Biomechanical corrections on foot orthoses stay exactly as you set them.
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®.
Choose from three grades: NickelPlast-Lite, NickelPlast-S, and
NickelPlast X-Firm. Noted for their superb shock-absorbing qualities,
all are engineered to withstand pounding and abuse. X-Firm is so tough,
you can use it in footwear as an insoling.
NickelPlast is easy to work with. Heated from 300° to 350° F for a
few minutes, it becomes soft and easily yields to complex molding and
shaping. NickelPlast shrinks about 15% when thoroughly heated. Upon
cooling, it hardens approximately five Shore A points. Having three
different grades of NickelPlast is like having six different materials
in your tool box.
Use NickelPlast where long wear, resilience and easy fabrication are
necessary. PTB liners, insoles, and foot orthotic postings are just a
few possible applications.
