Benecast™ Plaster of Paris combines all the technician/ patient benefits of the finest leno-weave gauze, impregnated with a specially formulated blend of alpha and beta Plaster of Paris crystals incorporating high-grade binders and accelerants. It is then spooled onto a rigid plastic core. The Benecast™ Plaster of Paris comes in both rolls and slabs in 5 different sizes.
As with all our Casting Tapes, Benecast™ Plaster of Paris can also be used for Arts and Crafts purposes.
Features & Benefits
Quicker wetting-out Plastic core provides easier handling qualities and allows rapid, even wetting-out of the bandage upon immersion.
Additional stability interlocked leno-weave fabric ensures extra stability during wet stage, making it ideal for moulding around awkward contours.
Leno-weave has excellent conformance. It also reduces distortion and creasing during application.
Better mould-ability, the advanced fabric/plaster combination creates a smooth and gently-textured consistency with minimal plaster loss for cleaner, trouble-free handling and improved mould-ability.
Fast setting, improved accelerants produce an initial set within approximately 120-150 seconds for rapid immobilisation. The cast will be fully set after 3-5 minutes. (Usual weight-bearing advice applies).
Rigid structure Benecast POP sets to a hard, rigid, aesthetically pleasing structure, combining excellent porosity and absorbency qualities.
Benecast POP has been specially designed and produced to accommodate all the needs of busy Fracture Clinics, A+E and Theatre Plaster Rooms where the rapid immobilisation of injuries is vital, where easier handling and application properties are appreciated and a smooth even finish is essential.
Fully protective packaging. Each Benecast POP roll is supplied in a moisture-proof metallic foil pack to ensure that every roll is maintained in optimum condition ready for immediate use when required.
