Kydex ® High service temperature sheet for aircraft interiors.
6185
HIGH TEMPERATURE AIRCRAFT SHEET
General Information
KYDEX 6185 is a proprietary thermoplastic sheet with improved heat distortion temperature (HDT) for higher in-service temperatures while providing excellent extensibility, good impact resistance, and excellent solvent resistance. It meets FAR 25.853(a) for use in aircraft interior parts. Maximum recommended service temperature is approximately 185-195°F (85-90°C) depending on thermoforming technique and application.

Features
KYDEX 6185 is available in gauges from .040" (1mm) and up in eight distinctive textures and custom colors.

KYDEX 6185 meets the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration paragraph FAR 25,853(a) in all gauges for vertical burn.

Heat Distortion Temperature (HDT), which is one measure of the material's maximum service temperature of 185°F (85oC) unannealed at 264psi (1.8MPa) and a high 195°F (90oC) 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
