Offering superior performance in extensibility, durability, impact resistance, fire retardance, and aesthetic appeal.
|CAPPED WOODGRAIN SHEET
For Flat and Membrane Pressed Applications|
Super tough, durable KYDEX 152 WG sheet brings new dimensions to membrane pressers in: extensibility, rigidity, abrasion resistance, and fire retardancy. This high performance thermoplastic sheet is available in five aesthetically pleasing woodgrain patterns; each substrate color is custom matched to compliment the woodgrain cap. It rates Class 1/A when tested according to the ASTM E-84, the Steiner Tunnel test and V-0 when tested to UL Std. 94 testing.
Superior Formability: For deep or detailed parts or where extensibility and durability are required, KYDEX 152 WG is unsurpassed.
Rigidity: KYDEX 152 WG is more rigid than most other thermoplastics resulting in parts that will deform less when loaded.
Breakage Resistance: With a Notched Izod impact resistance of 15 ft-lbs./in (795 J/m), KYDEX 152 WG offers outstanding resistance to breakage.
Abrasion Resistance: KYDEX 152 WG offers superior abrasion and burnishing resistance as evidenced by Hoffman scratch and burnish tests. If KYDEX 152 WG was to be gouged, the substrate of complimentary color camouflages scratches.
KYDEX 152 WG is rated Class 1/A according to ASTM E-84 Tunnel Test (UL 723) in independent laboratory tests (in gauges <.040"(1mm)). It also rates V-0 according to UL94 independent laboratory testing.
Selection: KYDEX 152WG is available in 5 popular woodgrain patterns: Auburn Pear, Hayward Cherry, Solstice Oak, American Natural and Arturo Oak.Recommended gauge for membrane pressing: .040" (1.0mm).
RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
