Cellacast Active is fast and easy to apply. The polyester substrate has a very high elasticity which provides exceptional conformability especially around the heel and Achilles tendon.

Stability and flexibility of the cast can be individually adjusted by the number of layers. Fewer layers offer greater flexibility, more layers increase stability providing immobilization where necessary. Depending on the number of layers, a Cellacast Active cast can be cut with cast scissors.

For use in creating a negative impression mold, in addition to the tape's conformability, the combination of the substrate and resin creates a less porous mold, thus reducing the plaster loss seeping through the substrate.

Low tack resin allows for easy handling and molding using standard exam gloves.
