• 13% and 19% micro perforation in 1/16 (1.6 mm) thickness makes an excellent light weight and breathable material for thumb or wrist splints without compromising rigidity. Great for the arthritic hand where weight and bulkiness is a concern.

“Wrap and Tack” Splinting Technique
Coated sheet surface to avoid accidental bonding but provides enough tack to hold a temporary bond for the wrap and tack splinting technique. Press the surfaces of REBOUNDâ¢ thermoplastic splinting material together and when cooled, the bond can be popped apart. Great for elbow splints or for any circumferential splints. A permanent bond can be achieved by distressing the surfaces or with a bonding solvent. Recommended for all upper and lower extremity splinting static or dynamic splints (finger, hand, arm, body, leg, ankle, foot, neck and face). Heating temperature: 65°C to 70°C (150°F to 160°F)
Thickness: 1 /8″ (3.2 mm). Heat time: 1 min. Work Time: 3 – 5 min.
Thickness: 3 /32″ (2.4mm). Heat time: 45 sec. Work Time: 2 – 4 min.
Thickness: 1 /16″ (1.6mm). Heat time: 30 sec. Work Time: 1 – 2 min.
