Plastazote is a latex-free, non-toxic and hypoallergenic foam used for orthotic formation that is free from all residual chemicals—reducing potential for irritation or allergic reaction in your patients. It is a pure closed cell, cross linked polyethylene foam.
It is lightweight and buoyant,
yet durable, offers good thermal insulation and is easy to mold and shape.It’s well-suited for an orthotic top cover, base or lining.
