Covering material

Laminating fabric and transfer paper

At AFT you will find two types of covering material for personalizing the orthosis or prosthesis in no fewer than 93 different patterns. There is a suitable motive for every patient.

Our laminating fabric is made of polyester with elastane components. Special properties of this material are flexibility and deformability. Due to the flexibility, the color penetrates deeply into the fabric during the production process with resin technology.

In addition, AFT also offers transfer paper, also known as transfer paper. The great advantage of this stable printed paper is that you can easily adapt an orthosis or prosthesis to the patient’s taste. The first step is to heat the plastic sheet. After the plate has fully heated up, remove it from the oven and place the transfer paper on top. Press down on the transfer paper and reheat it. The heat transfers the color from the transfer paper to the plate. Remove the transfer paper and you’re done!
