Thermoplastic Materials

X-LITE® is an airy and lightweight thermoplastic material engineered to meet your splinting, bracing, and casting needs. The material is made from a 100% cotton mesh that has been saturated with a non-toxic thermoplastic resin. All reactive substances in the thermoplastic have been cured which makes X-LITE® an environmentally friendly, safe material for techs and patients alike.

The X-LITE® Classic material has larger openings making it optimal for larger anatomy and very useful for burn patients due to its airy and open-weave properties. X-LITE® Premium has smaller openings and is perfect for smaller anatomy, hands, fingers, and pediatrics. Premium has superior drapeability properties. X-LITE® PLUS is the Premium thermoplastic with a polyester fabric layered on top making it softer to the touch. It also provides the material with color, available in Red, Blue, Black, White, and Hot Pink. The thermoplastic materials come in different widths and thicknesses.

The 3D-LITE™ is another innovative product distributed by Allard USA, which consists of an open-weave polyester thermoplastic material. The open structure of the fabric makes it airy and comfortable, yet rigid and is perfect for orthotic fabrication. 3D-LITE™ is very suitable for adult LSOs and TLSOs, or other applications where maximum rigidity is required.

We also provide accessories for use when custom fabricating an orthosis. Accessories like edging materials, Velcro for straps, stockinette, and hook.
