The low-temperature thermoplastic sheet is a special synthetic polymer polyester, a new type of medical material processed by a series of physical and chemical methods.It can be used for the manufacture of orthopedic bone external fixators, orthotics, and braces. After heated and softened, this material does not absorb radiation, besides, it has good shaping effect, unique shape memory function,easy to operate and fix. The low temperature thermoplastic sheet is currently the most ideal external fixation material in radiotherapy positioning.
Product name: Low Temperature Thermoplastic Sheet
Material: Synthetic Ploymer Polyester
Length & Width: 920*610mm (Product can be cut)
Perforated Rate: 4%，12%，25%
Color: White / Skin (Customized colors are available)
01 Strong Plasticly
Put it in 60-70 degrees hot water, it can be completely transparent and softened, then you can stretch and use is easily.
02 Memory Function
When you want to reshape the material,
you can put it back to the 60-70 degrees
hot water and soften it again. The material
can be restored to the original size and
shape, then you can shape it again.
03 Good breathability / Water proof
There are many meshes on the low temperature
thermoplastic sheets to enhance skin ventilation,
heat dissipation and perspire function, which can
prevent skin swelling and itching. Patients can
take a bath at any time, that is conducive to
improving the patient's quality of life.
04 Light weight / No restraint sense
Thin thickness / High strength
Low temperature thermoplastic sheet thickness
is 1.6-4.0mm, only 1/4 – 1/3 of the weight of
gypsum, and is has high toughness, which is
not easy to damage or break.It’s safe and
reliable to use. There will be no allergic
reactions to patients'skin.
05 Bonding Function
In the thermoplastic molding operation, the
surface or cross-section of the low temperature
thermoplastic sheet can be arbitrarily bonded.
It's easy for doctors to operate.
06 Good X-Ray Permeability
During the re-examination, the patient can
take X-Ray with the low temperature
thermoplastic sheet. The material will not
weaken the X-Ray effect.
07 Easy to remove
When finished using the low temperature thermoplastic sheet, it can be cut by scissors easily.
08 Environmental Friendly
Buried in the soil after using thermoplastic
sheet, it can degrade naturally in 8-16 months.
Can be used for fixation after fracture and joint dislocation. It can also be used to fix soft tissue injuries such as joint ligaments, nerve tendon injuries and other surgical treatments.
Can be used to fix joint deformities, nerve paralysis and tendon injuries after orthopedic surgery.
Can be used to fix acute and chronic inflammation of joints and acute inflammation of limb soft tissues.
Can be used for the fixation of bone, joint tuberculosis, acute and chronic osteomyelitis, suppurative arthritis, primary bone tumor, and malignant tumor bone metastasis during conservative treatment or after the removal of the lesion.
Can be used for fixation after burns and other plastic surgery.
Can be used to make rehabilitation braces and orthopedic braces.
Can be used for fixation of radiotherapy positioning.
Put the low temperature thermoplastic sheet into 60°C-70°C degrees hot water, when completely turn to t ransparent and softened, take it out.
Put the completely transparent and softened material in a fixed position, stretch it by constant speed and fix the side strip on the fixing frame, then shape the human body partially. Keep it for 3-5 mins.
After the molding completed, wait for 5-10 mins it can be completely hardened. If the indoor temperature is too high and the qualitative time is too long, it can be forcedly cooled and hardened by cooler. After the hardening and shaping is completed, remove the shaping mould then operation is done.
The water temperature in the constant temperature water tank should keep 60°C-70°C. When the material is completely turn to transparent, it means that it is completely softened then take it out.
When the material is softened by heating, please do not take it out unless the material is completely turned to transparent.
Do not use excessive force or fix it too tightly during shaping to avoid the patient's discomfort caused by the slight shrinkage of the material during cooling and hardening.
When try to remolding, please clean up the material surface, then heat and soften the material again, when the material restored to original (flat) shape, you can molding again. Should not repeat molding too many times, avoid affect molding effect.
