Copolymer Polypropylene has excellent physical characterisitcs, particularly for applications where impact strength and heat resistance is important. The ability of Polypropylene to yield pressure and torque, yet consistantly return to its form without fatiguing, has eliminated distortion in many Orthoses.
Copolymer Polypropylene (contains up to 15% Polyethylene) produces solid Orthoses. Very popular as it is economically priced, this material is used for practically all Orthotic applications.
Typical thermoforming temperatures: 180-200°C.
Good impact resistance
