Preferred® Black Specs

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.

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

Minimum to moderate memory.
Splints can be modified a few times without thinning.
Requires less handling and maintains contours while cooling.

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

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.

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.
