Rolyan Aquaplast Original Single Sheet

Authorized Retailer Badge

This product has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer.

Original Rolyan Aquaplast Single Sheet clings to the skin while contouring and providing an extra set of hands to the experienced splintmaker while forming the splint. Aquaplast Sheet has the same handling characteristics as Aquaplast-T, but it bonds instantly and permanently on contact. When the material is dry-heated, the bond is especially strong. Excellent for securing outriggers or other components. Perforated materials allow for ventilation while also reducing the weight of the finished splint. 100% memory enables repeated reheating and cost-effective splint revisions.

Rolyan Aquaplast Original Sheet Features

  • Translucent when heated
  • Edges trim easily
  • Latex free
  • Adhesive Properties:
    - Aquaplast-T, Resilient-T, ProDrape-T, Watercolors, Polyform, Polyflex II, Orthoplast, OrthoPlast II and TailorSplint have a protective coating to prevent accidental self-bonding.
    - To bond these materials, remove the coating by scraping the surface or brushing the surface with an acetone material.
    - Spot-heat both surfaces with a heat gun until they become tacky, make sure both surfaces are dry, and then press firmly together.
    - This technique will provide a a permanent bond, ideal for adding outriggers and other attachments to the finished splint.
    - Original Aquaplast, Original Resilient, Ezeform and Synergy do not have a protective coating, and they are self-bonding when both pieces are hot and dry
    - A solvent is not requiredbut cleaning the splint surface prior to bonding is recommended.
  • Adjustments:
    - Change in contour or design of the splint can be accomplished easily by spot-heating the area by pouring hot water over it or using a heat gun.
    - Care should be taken not to overheat the material when using a heat gunkeep the hot air stream of the heat gun moving and do not hold it too close to the material.
  • Patterning:
    - Patterns can be drawn on all splinting materials with a scratch awl before placing the material in the water.
  • Cutting:
    - All splinting materials can be cut at room temperature by using heavy-duty shears, or scoring with a utility knife and bending at the scored mark, then completing the cut with a knife or scissors.
    - If more detailed pattern-making is required, it is recommended that the pattern be transferred to the splinting material to make a rough blank.
    - Then heat the rough blank for one- half the recommended time or until material is soft enough to cut with scissors.
    - This method will reduce rough edges and save time with edge finishing.
    - Light splinting materials can be cut at room temperature using scissors.
  • Forming:
    - After the pattern is made, the splinting material should be heated in water as indicated in the temperature and time chart.
    - The entire pattern or piece of material should feel soft when removed from the water.
    - When Aquaplast materials become transparent or translucent in a heat pan, the material is soft and ready to form.
    - When the material is soft, remove it from the water and pat it dry with an absorbent towel. (To avoid towel impressions or lint, cover the towel with a pillow case before drying the splinting material.)
    - Check the temperature of the material before beginning to fabricate the splint on the patient.
    - Forming some splints on a patient is easier with the assistance of gravity.
    - When forming a volar forearm splint, for example, place the patients hand in supination whenever possible, to allow the splinting material to drape into the arches of the hand.
  • Heating:
    For a chart giving heating information for each material, see Water Temperature and Time Guide for Rolyan and Rolyan Aquaplast Splinting Materials.
    - The best method for softening all splinting materials is heated water. Use a heat gun only for spot-heating and making adjustments.
    - For hot water heating, fill frying pan or heat pan with water at least 1" (2.5 cm) deep.
    - Heat water to temperature recommended in the chart (use thermo meter to measure water temperature). For Aquaplast splinting materials, use a heat pan liner in the bottom of the heat pan or frying pan. Hydrocollator units can be used for large pieces of splinting material. Use a heat pan liner to dip the material into the unit, to ensure that the material does not touch the bottom. Do not leave the splint blank unattended.
    - In addition to hot water heating, San-Splint, and Aquaplast materials can be heated in a convection oven.
    - Note that dry heating makes the material self-bonding, so no surface preparation is required for bonding.
    - Material that is heated in the oven also becomes hotter than material heated in water; check temperature carefully before applying it to the patient.
    - Heat material without overlapping or folding on a baking sheet with a non-stick surface in a preheated oven as follows.
    - Aquaplast: heat at 195° to 205°F (90‚¬€œ95°C) for up to 10 minutes or until transparent or translucent.
    Note: Overheating splinting materials increases the draping/stretching characteristics; cool slightly before handling it to avoid excess stretching.
  • Cooling:
    - Cold water, cold packs, cold spray, or cold wraps can be used to speed the cooling process.
    - Exercise band that has been stored in a freezer can also be used to speed the cooling process.
  • Edge Finishing:
    - Smooth edges by heating the rough edges of the splinting material with a heat gun or dipping the edge into heated water for 5 to 10 seconds.
    - Smooth the heated edges using finger tips or the palm of the handa small amount of hand or body lotion on the finger tips makes smoothing the edges easier.
  • Fabricated splints:
    The splint will lose its shape in temperatures over 135°F (57°C). It should be kept away from sources of heat such as ovens, hot water, open flames, and sunny car windows.
    - The splint can be cleaned with soap and lukewarm water.
    - The straps can be washed with soap and water, but the adhesive portion should not be moistened.
    - The splint and straps should be allowed to dry thoroughly before reapplication of the splint.
  • Care and Cleaning Splinting materials:
    - The shelf life of low-temperature splinting materials is indefinite under the following conditions:
    - Store at temperatures between 40° and 90°F (4° and 32°C).
    - Store at less than 65% relative humidity.
    - Avoid prolonged exposure to light, especially ultraviolet light.
    - Avoid exposure to corrosive fumes and ethylene oxide fumes.
  • Precautions for Finished Orthosis:
    - Splint adjustments are to be made only by a healthcare professional.
    - The healthcare professional is responsible for providing wearing instructions and precautions to other healthcare practitioners, care providers involved in the patients care, and the patient.
    - If unusual swelling, skin discoloration or discomfort occurs, use should be discontinued and a healthcare professional consulted.
