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.

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
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.

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
