  • Encore 2.4mm Splinting Material used to make hand and wrist splints, arthritis splints, circumferential splints and burn splints.
  • The traditional coating has a tacky surface that helps hold the splint in place during molding.
  • Lightweight support from the hand to the foot.
  • Allows repeated remolding for perfect results. Turns translucent when warm.

Resistance to Stretch

  • Minimum to moderate resistance to stretch.
  • Can be used for single-surface splinting or stretched circumferentially.

Drape

  • Maximum drape. Excellent conformability and reproduction of detail.
  • Turns translucent when thoroughly heated and retains its clarity for the first few minutes of molding, allowing visibility of landmarks and bony prominences.

Memory

  • 100% memory.
  • Will regain its original cut shape and size every time it is reheated.
  • Encore™ can be used to make a variety of orthoses, providing firm to lightweight support from the hand to the foot.

Rigidity

  • Moderately rigid splints.
  • If a more flexible splint is required, simply stretch the material to achieve the desired rigidity and thickness.

Bonding

  • Traditional coating has a tacky surface that helps hold the splint in place during molding.
  • Pieces pinched together can be pulled apart once cooled.
  • Use only dry heat and firm pressure to bond firmly; use solvent to form a permanent bond.

Surface Finish

  • Resists fingerprinting for a smooth, shiny surface. To remove marks and bring out shine, dip in warm water or lightly heat the surface with dry heat.

Applications

  • Use 1/8″ Encore™ for thumb, finger and hand splints, bases for dynamic splints and burn splints. It is also ideal for lower extremity splints, circumferential leg splints, foot drop splints and foot orthoses.
  • Use 3/32″ Encore™ for hand and wrist splints, arthritis splints, circumferential splints and burn splints. It is also ideal as a base for smaller dynamic outriggers.
  • Lightweight 1/16″ Encore™ is ideal for pediatric and finger positioning splints.

Working Time (1/8″)
