Splinting

Productivity and performance are the goals of Scotchcast splinting products. Conformable, customizable, comfortable, Scotchcast splints provide strength and stability without the plaster mess. Our ready-to-use splints are made from layered fiberglass with pre-padded, water-repellent felt to ensure quick drying. Our 3M™ Primacast™ Unpadded Splint technology offers the speed and strength users expect from synthetic splints with the conformability and feel of plaster.
