Allied Plastic Supply offers Clearflex, a soft inner liner material that can be thermo-formed and heat-gun molded, has good clarity, and bonds well to itself. Held in place in an ankle foot orthosis (AFO) using a small piece of self-adhesive hook and loop, a Clearflex liner is designed to provide stability while maintaining flexibility. Clearflex should be heated at 325°F to 350°F, but no higher, until it clears. It does not cold form over time. The material has an ultimate tensile strength of 1520 psi, an ultimate tensile elongation of 750%, and a shore A hardness of 84. It is available in 1/8”, 3/16” and 1/4” sheets.
