ORFICAST MORE THERMOPLASTIC TAPE


Orficast More offers high comfort for your patients and is very easy to use.

Orficast More is a unique textile-like thermoformable material. It offers extreme comfort for your patients and is very easy to use. This knitted hybrid fabric is ideal for all applications of finger and/or thumb orthoses and supportive bandage wraps

With double the thickness of Orficast, the innovative “More” version of Orfit’s thermoplastic material on a roll gives you the ability to meet an extensive range of orthotic applications with the same product features that therapists appreciate with Orficast.

The increased material thickness avoids the need to use two layers and provides a longer working time.

Orficast More is available in four widths: 6 cm (2.5″), 12 cm (5”), 15 cm (6″) and 30 cm (12″).
