Key Material Benefits

Watercolors is the only Rolyan material offered in a full range of colors. Like all materials in the Aquaplast™ family, it has 100 percent memory and turns translucent when heated. These unique characteristics help the clinician form the perfect-fitting splint with the ability to be revised.


Resistance to stretch: Moderate

Controlled stretch and the ability to be handled with moderate pressure. It will not stretch out of shape when removed from splint bath.

Conformability: Moderate/Maximum

Conforms to surface contours and detail when applying minimum force. Moderate degree of drape.

Memory: 100 percent

When reheated, the material “remembers” its original shape and returns to it. Allows for repeated reheating and reshaping for splint revisions.

Bonding: Coated

Create a temporary bond by pinching together heated material; however, it will come apart when cooled. Form a permanent bond by scrubbing off the coating or removing it with a bond solvent.

Appearance: Translucent when heated

Indicates material is soft and ready to form

Key Material Benefits

Rolyan Aquaplast Splinting Material is great for a wide range of supportive needs with 100 percent memory that allows clinicians to form the perfect-fitting splint. The versatile thermoplastic sheets “remember” their original shape when reheated and return to it after reshaping for splint revisions. Bright and metallic colors of Aquaplast Watercolors fit the patient’s lifestyle and increase patient confidence.

Easily Conform for Patient Needs

The moderate drape of Aquaplast Watercolors means the material conforms to the affected area with minimal force and only moderate pressure is needed for a controlled stretch. A temporary bond can be created by pinching together the heated material, however, it will come apart when cooled. To form a permanent bond, scrub off or remove the coating with a bond solvent.

Physical Attributes

The vibrant watercolors of Rolyan Aquaplast-T are available in 1/8" (3.2 mm), 1/16" (1.6 mm), and 3/32" (2.4 mm) sheet thicknesses with solid material options. When heated, the material turns translucent and the smooth splinting thermoplastic leaves no unwanted fingerprints or markings. The rigidity of 59.2 kpsi* means the hardened splint retains its shape without reinforcement.

Rolyan Watercolors™ Solid Thermoplastic Splinting Material


Watercolors™ is identical to Aquaplast-T™ but is offered in a variety of bright and metallic colors to improve patient compliance. As part of the Aquaplast family, Watercolors features a balance of conformability with a moderate resistance to stretch, giving clinicians more control over how much the material stretches during splint fabrication. With 100% memory, the material “remembers” its original shape when reheated and returns to it, allowing for repeated reheating and reshaping for splint revisions. It is also the only material family that becomes translucent when heated, helping the clinician identify landmarks for positioning and pressure points to provide maximum comfort for the patient.

Rolyan Spectrum of Splinting Material

Rolyan provides therapists and clinicians the largest spectrum of hand therapy products and care. Rolyan empowers every therapist with the passion to mold and shape their patients’ recovery.

Heating Instructions

The recommended method for heating splinting materials is with hot water in a splint bath.
Only use a heat gun for spot-heating and adjustments.

Note: Overheating splinting materials increases the draping/stretching characteristics; allow material to cool slightly before handling to avoid excess stretching.


Splinting materials are intended to be used for fabrication of custom-molded rigid splints, orthoses, and adaptive equipment.

Best uses include:

  • Thumb spica splints
  • Finger splints
  • Hand splints
  • Wrist splints
  • Elbow splints
  • Dynamic splints
  • Foot drop splints
  • Clamshell splints
  • Splints for spasticity
  • Carpal tunnel splints
  • Pediatric splints
  • Splints for arthritis
  • Splints for burns
  • Back supports
  • Knee splints for immobilization
  • Shoulder splints
  • Foot orthotics
  • Ankle stirrup splints
  • Adaptive equipment
  • Static progressive and serial static splints

Care & Cleaning

Store at temperatures between 40° and 90°F (4° and 32°C) and less than 65 percent relative humidity. Avoid prolonged exposure to light, especially ultraviolet. Avoid exposure to corrosive and ethylene oxide fumes.

Formed splints will lose their shape in temperatures over 135°F(57°C) and should be kept away from sources of heat such as ovens, hot water, and car windows.

Clean splint with soap and lukewarm water. Allow splint and straps to dry thoroughly before reapplication.

Precautions for finished orthoses
Splint adjustments are to be made only by a health care professional, who is responsible for providing wearing instructions and precautions to other practitioners, care providers and the patient. If unusual swelling, skin discoloration or discomfort occurs, discontinue use and consult a health care professional.
