Kydex ® Offering superior performance in formability, rigidity, impact resistance, fire retardance, and chemical resistance.
General Information
Super tough, durable KYDEX 100, a proprietary alloy sheet, brings new dimensions to thermoformers in: formability, rigidity, breakage resistance, chemical resistance and fire retardancy. This high performance thermoplastic sheet is available in a wide range of standard and customer colors, textures, and sheet sizes. It is Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.® recognized for UL Std 94 V-0/5V and UL 746C and has 18 ft-lbs./in (953 J/m) Notched Izod impact resistance.

Superior Formablity: For deep or hard to form parts or where good finished detail is required. KYDEX 100 is unsurpassed.

Rigidity: KYDEX 100 is more rigid than most other thermoplastics resulting in parts that will deform less when loaded.

Breakage Resistance: With a high Notched Izod impact resistance, KYDEX 100 offers unsurpassed resistance to breakage.

Chemical Resistance: KYDEX 100 meets the highest standard for chemical resistance for thermoplastic materials.

Fire Retardance: KYDEX is recognized by Underwriter's Laboratories, Inc.® for Standard 94 V-0 and 5V and UL 746C in all gauges and colors.

Thermoformability: Excellent forming properties and crisp detail, plus easy machining and fabricating using conventional methods, further expanding finished part possibilities.

Electrical Properties: KYDEX 100 exhibits a Dielectric Strength of 565 V/mil and a Dielectric Constant of 3.13 @1000 Hz, 2.78 @1 MHz, 2.46 @800MHz, 2.42 @1.9 GHz, 2.67 @ 5GHz, and 2.7 @20 GHz.

RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
