Product Details

Rolyan Watercolors™ Perforated Thermoplastic Splinting Material


Watercolors™ is identical to Aquaplast-T™ but is offered in a variety of bright and metallic colors to improve patient compliance. As part of the Aquaplast family, Watercolors features a balance of conformability with a moderate resistance to stretch, giving clinicians more control over how much the material stretches during splint fabrication. With 100% memory, the material “remembers” its original shape when reheated and returns to it, allowing for repeated reheating and reshaping for splint revisions. It is also the only material family that becomes translucent when heated, helping the clinician identify landmarks for positioning and pressure points to provide maximum comfort for the patient.


Resistance to stretch: Moderate

  • Controlled stretch and the ability to be handled with moderate pressure.
  • It will not stretch out of shape when removed from splint bath.

Conformability: Moderate/Maximum

  • Conforms to surface contours and detail when applying minimum force.
  • Moderate degree of drape.

Memory: 100 percent

  • When reheated, the material “remembers” its original shape and returns to it.
  • Allows for repeated reheating and reshaping for splint revisions.

Bonding: Coated

  • 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.

Hardened Splint

Rigidity: Moderate/Maximum (59.2 kpsi*)

  • Retains shape without reinforcement.

Surface: Smooth

  • No unwanted fingerprints or markings.

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.
