The group of semi-finished parts featuring the materials PE, PP and PETG has now been extended to include sheets engineered from ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA).
SIMONA® SIMOLIFE EVA has been specially designed for the manufac- ture of inner sheaths used in arm and leg prosthetics. The two product types EVA flex and EVA superflex are designed to meet a wide range of requirements with regard to flexibility of the specific material. The ex- truded sheets, available in a natural and skin-tone colour, are supplied in the formats 400 x 400 mm and 2000 x 1000 mm, with thicknesses rang- ing from 3 to 15 mm. Customised sizes and sheets with antibacterial properties are available on request.
SIMONA® SIMOLIFE EVA Sheets have excellent hot-forming properties. Displaying minimal material shrinkage during cool-down, they also offer the advantage of high dimensional stability with uniform wall thickness distribution. In combination, this ensures the very best in fit together with superior adhesive properties and soft-touch comfort. With properties in- cluding biocompatibility in accordance with DIN EN ISO 10993-5/-10 and resistance to sweat, cosmetics, skin creams and disinfectants, they offer excellent safety and extreme durability.
