Key Material Benefits
The Aquaplast family is the only Rolyan splinting family that has 100 percent memory. It also is the only family that turns transparent or translucent when heated. These two unique characteristics help the clinician form the perfect-fitting splint with the ability to revise the material when needed.
Aquaplast, unlike Aquaplast-T, has no protective coating and will bond to itself instantly without surface preparation.
Resistance to Stretch: Moderate
Controlled stretch and the ability to handle with moderate pressure. It will not stretch out of shape when removed from a splint bath.
Conforms to surface contours and detail when minimum force is applied. 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.
Bonds permanently by pinching together heated surfaces.
