Kydex ® Thermoplastic sheet for applications requiring a Class 1/A rating up to .125" (3.175mm) Thickness
160
CLASS 1/A RATED THERMOPLASTIC SHEET
General Information
KYDEX 160 is a thermoplastic sheet that is used for laminating and thermoforming applications requiring a Class I/A rating. Unlike many other thermoplastics, KYDEX 160 is less hygroscopic and frequently does not require pre-drying. KYDEX 160 meets Class I/A building code ratings up to .125" (3.175mm) and is UL listed up to .080" (2.03mm).

Features
KYDEX 160 is available in 6 standard gauges from .028" (0.71mm) to .125" (3.175mm), nine textures, a large variety of colors - including custom color matching, custom blank sizes, and very low minimums.

KYDEX 160 sheet is more resistant to a wider range of concentrated chemicals than any other thermoplastic. Its' superior chemical resistance allows for excellent cleanability because stronger cleaning agents can be used with no discoloration or surface damage to the material.

KYDEX 160 is not available for field applied wallcovering applications. Please contact Kleerdex Company Customer Service with your requirements.

Thermoformability: KYDEX 160 has good formability and extensibility and is extremely easy to work with once formed.

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