Brailon® is a plastic-like paper developed specifically for use with Thermoform machines. It has a slightly matte surface, is non-toxic, moisture-proof, and classroom safe. Two formats of Brailon® are available –Regular and Heavy.
Regular Brailon comes in a box of 500 sheets and is primarily used to copy Braille text and basic tactile graphics.
Heavy Brailon comes in a box of 100 sheets and is used for copying of Braille diagrams and text, or where extra durability is required.
Brailon® is the most efficient, realistic and highest quality way to re-create graphics and tactile documents. Not only is it reliable and durable, but also it is an inexpensive way to create exact duplicates and diagrams. It has been the industry standard for 50 years. Please note that the use of non-Brailon® materials with Thermoform machines may be hazardous and dangerous.
Brailon® is Safe To Clean With Many Household Cleaners
Brailon® is a plastic-like material that can be cleaned with many non-bleach cleaners such as Lysol disinfectant spray or wipes, Windex, 409 (no bleach formula), etc.
Do not use any cleaners that contain bleaches, acids or coarse materials like Comet, as these will damage your Brailon® sheets. If you are not certain test on a small portion of your Brailon® sheet first, or call us and we would be happy to test for you.
