Kydex ® Proprietary thermoplastic sheet for aircraft interiors where higher service temperatures are required.
1900
MID-TEMPERATURE AIRCRAFT GRADE
General Information
KYDEX 1900 is a proprietary thermoplastic sheet with improved heat distortion temperature for higher in-service temperatures. It meets Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 25.853(a) for vertical burn and is available in a wide range of textures, colors, thicknesses, and sheet sizes. Maximum recommended service temperature is approximately 169-178° F (76-81° C) depending on thermoforming technique and application.

Features
KYDEX 1900 is available in gauges from .040" (1.02mm) to .250"(6.35mm) in a wide range of distinctive textures and many popular colors.

KYDEX 1900 meets the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration paragraph a1ii and a1Ii in all gauges for vertical burn.

Heat Distortion Temperature (HDT), which is one measure of the material's maximum service temperature is 168°F (76°C) unannealed and a high 173°F (78°C) after annealing. In-use temperatures should not exceed this range of temperature. The affect of temperature on a material is highly dependent on part size, internal stresses, and loadings.

Thermoformability: Excellent forming properties results in uniform wall thicknesses 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
