Erkodur is a clear transparent PET-G thermoplastic. The Material is abrasion resistant to the greatest possible extent with excellent properties concerning breaking resistance, elasticity and from stability. Erkodur belongs to the polyester group and is therefore not hygroscopic reactive (no predrying necessary ).The material is highly biocompatible.
(see Thermoforming technique manual) Finishing set Quick 2 (110 877), high polish can be obtained with polishs for plastic. The spacer foil is taken off only after thermoforming and finishing. If adding acrylic moisten the area that has to be adjusted with a little monomer first.
Place the foil so that the spacer/insulating foil is facing the model. For machines without control: Test softness of foil with an instrument. If permanent impressions result, thermoform.
