Characteristics

Memory  Minimum to moderate memory. Splints can be reheated and edges will remain smooth and closed. Splints will hold their shape when mildly heated for fit adjustments. 

RTS  Moderate resistance to stretch. Tolerates minimum to moderate handling during splint molding. Smooth motions yield superior, sculpted results. 

Drape  Moderate drape requires only light to moderate pressure to form a contoured fit. 

Rigidity  Moderate rigidity. A circumferential splint made of Contour Blend™ is flexible enough to easily take on and off, yet strong enough for immobilization. 

Bonding  Traditional coating allows splinting over bandages without adhering. A pressed wet bond will hold firmly, but can be pulled apart when cooled. Dry heating two surfaces together will form a strong bond. For a permanent bond, use solvent or scrape off coating, apply dry heat, and press together.

Surface Finish  Moderate resistance to fingerprints and resists showing stains. for a smooth, shiny surface. To remove marks, lightly heat the surface and rub. Smooth, self-sealing cut edges remain sealed even after reheating.

Latex Free  Skin friendly and non-irritating. Can be disposed of with normal waste and will biodegrade over time. 


Heating and Working Time

Optimum Temperature: 160˚F (70˚C)

Heat in a dry-heat oven or in a waterbath at 160˚F (70˚C) for 1-2 minutes.  

The material normally sets in 3-4 minutes, with a working time of 1-2 minutes, depending on thickness.
