Fire-Retardant thermoplastic sheet designed specifically for applications requiring NSF approval

107   [ discontinued in 2011 ]
HIGH PERFORMANCE SHEET FOR NSF FOOD ZONE APPLICATIONS
General Information
KYDEX 107 is a proprietary thermoplastic sheet designed for NSF approved applications that offers improved properties compared to competitive ABS thermoplastic sheet. It is made using only FDA approved raw materials and is listed by the National Sanitation Foundation for Standard 51 food zone applications. It is available in limited colors, but a wide range of textures and sheet sizes.

Features
KYDEX 107 is formulated only with FDA approved (under 21 CFR) raw materials as listed with NSF standard 51 for food zone applications

KYDEX 107 has higher breakage resistance as measured by the Notched Izod test than competitive thermoplastics.

KYDEX 107 is available in gauges from .028" (0.71mm) and up, eight textures, and custom colors.

Thermoformability: Excellent forming properties and crisp detail, plus easy machining and fabricating using 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
