Product Description

Plastazote Polyethylene Sheets:

Plastazote is the most common closed-cell, polyethylene foam used in the foot orthotic industry. It will adhere to most materials, it is readily washable, discourages bacteria growth and has good thermal properties.

Plastazote foams have widespread uses in orthotics, prosthetic linings and foot care appliances. A thermoplastic polyethylene foam, Plastazote is easily heat moulded (85-140°C) and will adhere to most materials.

Its unique cross linked construction and non toxicity have established Plastazote as  standard for orthotic linings. It is readily washable, discourages bacteria growth and has good thermal properties.Medical application areas include: orthotics, splinting, seating, collars, prosthetic padding & protective equipment.Bespoke service available on request: perforations, adhesive backing, cutting service.

Application Guide for Plastazote Foams

1. Understanding Plastazote Foams:

Plastazote foams are closed-cell, cross-linked polyethylene foams known for their exceptional properties, including durability, flexibility, chemical resistance, and cushioning abilities. They are commonly used in various industries due to their versatility.

2. Applications:

    •    Orthotics and Prosthetics: Plastazote’s moldability makes it ideal for orthotic insoles, prosthetic liners, and padding for braces.
    •    Packaging and Protection: Used extensively for protective packaging in industries like electronics, healthcare, and automotive due to its shock absorption and cushioning properties.
    •    Sports and Leisure: Employed in sports equipment, helmets, padding, and flotation devices due to its impact resistance and buoyancy.
    •    Medical and Healthcare: Utilized in splints, cushioning materials for medical devices, wheelchair seating, and more due to its hypoallergenic and non-toxic nature.
    •    Specialized Industrial Applications: Includes gaskets, seals, insulation, and vibration dampening due to its resistance to chemicals and temperature.

3. Working with Plastazote Foams:

    •    Cutting and Shaping: Can be easily cut with sharp knives, scissors, or die-cutting machines. Heat shaping using hot air or water allows customization.
    •    Bonding: Bonds well with adhesives suitable for polyethylene-based materials. Solvent bonding or heat welding methods can also be used for joining pieces.
    •    Molding: Heating Plastazote allows it to be shaped into desired forms. Use caution to avoid overheating, which can damage the material.
    •    Finishing: Surface treatment, such as painting or laminating, can enhance appearance and functionality.
    •    Care and Maintenance: Plastazote foams are durable but should be protected from excessive heat, prolonged sunlight exposure, and harsh chemicals to maintain their properties

4. Safety Considerations:

    •    Ventilation: Adequate ventilation is necessary when heat shaping or bonding to avoid inhalation of fumes.
    •    Protective Gear: Wear appropriate gloves and eye protection when working with cutting tools or chemicals.

5. Selecting the Right Plastazote Foam:

Consider factors such as density, color, thickness, and specific properties required for the intended application. Plastazote is available in various grades and densities to suit different needs.

6. Storage:

Store Plastazote foams in a dry, cool area away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures to maintain their properties.

7. Environmental Considerations:

Plastazote foams are recyclable. Check with local recycling facilities for guidance on proper disposal and recycling methods.

This guide provides an overview of the versatile uses and handling of Plastazote foams, but always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions and safety data sheets for specific details and recommendations regarding their products.
