Epoxy ESF Putty
Epoxy ESF Putty is a simple to use, quick and convenient alternative to the standard bar and clamp system.The putty, once mixed, stiffens in 5 minutes and within 1 hour is fully cured.The putty can be applied and then the fracture reduced allowing precise manipulation of the fracture site.The versatility of the system allows the putty to be used in place of clamps, to cover sharp ends of cut pins, and many other applications.
There are two pack sizes in a bar format with the premeasured catalyst in the centre of the bar ready for mixing.The product is clean and has a long shelf life. Only mix the quantity you need, cutting the required amount
off the end of the bar. If you find you don’t have enough, more can be prepared in a matter of seconds. ESF putty sticks to itself very well and may be used for repairs and corrections. Particularly useful in fractures
in small furries where proximal and distal fragments may be attached together with ‘blobs’ of putty in place of clamps regardless of fixation pin site.
Typical Applications
• ESF applications requiring multiple pins of various sizes placed at various angles.
• ESF applications in rabbits and guinea pigs
• Fractures of the jaw
• Protecting sharp ends of cut pins
• Joining non-standard pins and bars
• Use to add a pin mid frame

ESF Tissue Protector
Protection of soft tissue is very important when placing an ESF frame. Protection prevents tissues from getting wrapped around the drill bit, and helps to maintain access to the pin tract in the bone. Once a connecting bar with clamps is in position, pin placement through a drill guide presents a specific problem because standard drill guide tissue protectors cannot be removed once the pin is in position.The ESF Tissue Protector splits along its length to allow removal.The tip has small serrations to encourage grip on the bone surface.

Spanners & Wrenches
Standard spanners, sockets or combination spanners are available for all clamp sizes see reference chart.

Quick Ratchet Spanner
       Use of our quick ratchet spanner will save time tightening clamps. Unlike conventional ratchet handles and socket sets the quick ratchet is not thicker than a regular spanner and can be used in very confined spaces.
