|| Capped sheet for electrical sign applications that require UL compliance. Eliminates painting required with other materials. |
|THERMOPLASTIC SHEET FOR SIGNAGE|
KYDEX 101 is a proprietary alloy sheet capped with a weatherable cap for applications such as electrical signs requiring UL compliance. This sheet is recognized by UL as meeting UL Std 746C and UL Std 94 V-0, 5V. Since the substrate is white, it eliminates the need for painting the inside of sign cans, which is required with other thermoplastics and with metal. It offers outstanding thermoformability, impact resistance, weatherability, and machinability.
Rigidity: KYDEX 101 is more rigid than most other thermoplastics resulting in parts that will deform less when loaded.
Breakage Resisance: With Notched Izod impact resistance of 18 ft-lbs./in (953 J/m), KYDEX 101 offers unsurpassed resistance to breakage.
Weatherability: The cap offers excellent weatherability for use in outdoor applications.
Thermoformability: Excellent forming properties result in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail. Machining and fabricating can be easily done with conventional methods; further expanding finished part possibilities.
RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
