A weatherable sheet with superior performance for thermoforming and a decorative sheet for lamination.
|WEATHERABLE AND DECORATIVE SHEET|
High performance, tough, weatherable KYDEX 510 thermoplastic sheet is available in many distinctive colors and textures. An acrylic cap protects the surface for excellent weatherability for outdoor use. This product is now available with decorative caps (black/white granite and rust/grey granite). While excellent in thermoforming applications, KYDEX 510 also is being used as a damage resistant surfacing material.
KYDEX 510 offers the properties of "KYDEX" in a weatherable formulation.
KYDEX 510 sheet is highly impact resistant as measured by the Notched Izod Impact Resistance test with typical values of 15 ft-lbs./in (795 J/m) at 73°F (23° C), higher than most other thermoplastics.
KYDEX 510 is fire retardant (self-extinguishing) with a UL 94 V-0 rating.
Specifiers have selected KYDEX sheet for surfacing and laminating applications because of its unique characteristics such as: low moisture absorption, resistance to chipping and cracking, excellent fabrication and machining properties, and flexibility.
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. It can be drilled, punched, and cut using standard woodworking or metalworking tools. Because it is a thermoplastic it will expand and contract with changes in temperature and should not be used as a countertop where it might be subjected to hot items.
ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES - KYDEX 510 exhibits a Dielectric Constant of 2.76 @ 60Hz, 2.53 @ 800 MHz, and 2.51 @ 1.9 GHz.
RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
