Orficast™ Thermoplastic Tape is ideal for simple finger splints, thumb splints and supportive bandage wraps. Orficast activates in warm water (65°C) and can be moulded directly on the patient, with no risk of skin burning. Material can be cut with regular scissors at any desired shape/length. Velcro strapping can be attached directly to Orficast tape with dry heat (ie short blast from a heat gun).
With full memory, it can be reheated and reshaped. Moderate resistance to stretch. The knitted structure allows skin ventilation of the patient making it ideal when dealing with wounds. The perfect alternative to plaster and fibreglass casting- no protective measures and undercast padding required. Waterproof, patients can swim with splints made of Orficast.
