KYDEX 160a is specifically formulated to meet the fire retardant properties of AS 1530.3 and 1530.4.
|THERMOPLASTIC SHEET FOR AUSTRALIA|
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).
KYDEX 160a is very resistant to a wide range of concentrate chemicals, and is therefore easy to clean with aggressive cleans such as Soft Scrub®, Fantastic®, and citrus-based cleaners such as Citri Kleen®. Ammoniated cleaners should be avoided since they can leave a residue.
Most important, KYDEX 160a meets the stringent requirements of AS 1530 Part 3 and Part 4 (Australian Methods for Fire Tests on Building Materials, Components, and Structures) for use as an interior finish.
KYDEX 160a can be used for both flat sheet applications such as wallcovering or laminating or for 3-dimensional parts. It can be vacuumed or pressure formed.
RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
