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 molding.
  • 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 without thinning.
  • Requires less handling and maintains contours while cooling.

Rigidity

  • Molded splints have a moderate rigidity.
  • A circumferential splint is flexible enough for easy donning and doffing, yet strong enough for immobilization.

Bonding

  • 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

  • 1/8" Preferred® can be used for almost any splinting application. Use for dynamic and static splinting; for adult and pediatric positioning; and for post-burn and post-surgical care.
  • 3/32" 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 pediatric splints when children are able to cooperate.

Working Time (1/8")

  • Allows three to five minutes to form and harden after softening in 160° F (71° C) water.

Latex Free

See Specs tab for perforation and thickness.

Sheets sold individually or in a case of 2 or 4.
