Key Benefits of Polyform
Polyform is the only Rolyan splint material with minimum resistance to stretch and maximum rigidity when cool. This unique characteristic allows the clinician to form a detailed splint with the confidence that the intricate molding will not deform when used.
Handling Polyform Thermoplastic
Resistance to stretch: Minimum
- Stretches easily when heated and needs soft, gentle pressure to form a splint. Be careful not to allow material to stretch too much.
- Easily conforms to surface contours and detail, reducing time spent fabricating splint, and provides a precise fit for increased comfort and fewer pressure areas. High degree of drape.
- Ability to be reheated and reshaped but will not return to original shape.
- Create a temporary bond by pinching together heated material; however, it will come apart when cooled. Form a permanent bond by scrubbing off the coating or removing it with a bond solvent.
- Available in the following sheet thicknesses: 1/8″ (3.2 mm) and 1/16″ (1.6 mm). Use thinner material to combine lightweight comfort with a high degree of rigidity.
Perforations : Assorted
- Available in 1 percent or solid material.
- Opaque when heated
Rigidity: Moderate/Maximum (137.7 kpsi*)
- Strongest Rolyan splint material when formed and cooled, resisting deformities such as dents, cracks and breaks during use.
- Picks up fingerprints and markings if not properly handled.
Splinting materials are intended to be used for fabrication of custom-molded rigid splints, orthoses, and adaptive equipment.

Care & Cleaning
Store at temperatures between 40° and 90°F (4° and 32°C) and less than 65 percent relative humidity. Avoid prolonged exposure to light, especially ultraviolet. Avoid exposure to corrosive and ethylene oxide fumes.
Formed splints will lose their shape in temperatures over 135°F(57°C) and should be kept away from sources of heat such as ovens, hot water, and car windows.
Clean splint with soap and lukewarm water. Allow splint and straps to dry thoroughly before reapplication.
