Abstract : The bending, compressive, and impact strengths of the quick rise formulation are determined and compared to the regular PE 15 foams. The quick rise foams were superior in all properties tested. The quick rise foams reached a tack free state in 5-6 minutes compared to 15 minutes for the regular PE 15 foams. This quick rise formulation should be satisfactory for foam-inplace splints. (Author)
