|Multicast Standard Thermoplastic
Multicast (Standard) is a low temperature thermoplastic material, based mainly on polycaprolactone and polyurethane. Multicast Standard is externally covered with a 0.6mm foam layer.
The thermoplastic product has a "crafty" memory, creating a constant molecular inhibition during processing and hardening. After heating, the material finds its own way through the force of the earth's natural gravitational pull. the material does not shrink.
Multicast characteristics keeps its as long as the original surface area is not stretched more than 15%.
The characteristic advantage of the foam coating is that the thermoplastic does not stick to itself in hot water. thus, sizable surfaces can be put in a small hot water container. The foam coating creates a minute layer of air between the patient's skin and the thermoplastic, reducing the possibility of skin chafing.
The material dissolves entirely after shredding.
The material can be heated in the following ways:
The material can be processed after a 2-minute heating at 70°C or 1-minute heating at 75°C or until a dark “glassy” discoloration has appeared.
GOOD for Ankle brace
VERY GOOD for tibia, knee and low back brace
IDEAL for body splints
RECOMENDED for finger, wrist, metacarpus splints and nose
