Manosplint Ohio S is a low-temperature thermoplastic ideal for hand splinting. It has 100% memory and becomes translucent when heated. As it is an ‘uncoated’ material, it is slightly ‘sticky’ to the touch when heated and it will easily form a permanent bond. This ‘stickiness’ also helps to hold it in place during splint fabrication.
Other features include: 100% memory, moderate resistance to stretch, moderate drape, high rigidity and it resists finger prints.
Ohio S can be printed to provide fun, exciting splints – please select your pattern above or contact us if you would like a bespoke design.
100% Memory – when fully reheated can regain original size and shape.
Resistance to Stretch (RTS):
Moderate handling with smooth strokes during holding. Shapes easily.
Moderate pressure needed for a conforming fit.
Maximum – strong support.
Bonding & Finish:
Non-coated material allows for it to self-bond. Acts as a second pair of hands to keep product in place during application. Resists fingerprints with a shiny finish.
Available on solid, 1%, 11%, 12%, 15%, 19%, 36% and 42% perforation options, depending on the material and thickness.
1/8″ (3.2mm), 3/32″ (2.4mm), 1/12″ (2.0mm) and 1/16 (1.6mm)
