Kydex ® Outperforms conventional acrylic/PVC and FR-ABS thermoplastics at competitive costs.
General Information
KYDEX 200 is a proprietary thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with other thermoplastics while providing excellent extensibility, good impact resistance, and excellent solvent resistance. Based on independent laboratory testing it meets the requirements of UL Std 94 V-0 in all gauges. It has 10 ft-lbs./in (534 J/m) of Notched Izod impact resistance.

Kydex 200 is available in seven gauges from .028" (0.71 mm) and up in eight distinctive textures and limited colors.

Delivers performance advantages at an effective cost.

It is among the most rigid of thermoforming materials as demonstrated by its high modulus of elasticity.

Particularly effective for pressure forming and/or where the part is going to be painted.Meets the requirements of 94 V-0 in all gauges as tested by an independent lab.

THERMOFORMABILITY: Excellent forming properties result 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
