Kydex ® KYDEX 6200 is specifically formulated to meet the fire safety needs of the mass transportation industry.
General Information
KYDEX 6200 is a proprietary, high performance thermoplastic sheet. It is designed for use in mass transit vehicles such as subways, vans, buses, and trains. It meets the recommended fire safety practices of both the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Federal Rail Administration (FRA) for smoke emission and flammability as tested under ASTM E-662 and ASTM E-162. It is the ideal thermoplastic to solve your mass transportation equipment needs.

KYDEX 6200 is available in over 200 developed colors, eight surface textures, and thicknesses from .028" (0.71mm) and up enabling you to satisfy both the functional and aesthetic requirements of any mass transit vehicle interior.

KYDEX 6200 is easy to clean. Graffiti/spray paint, lipstick, ball point pen, felt pen, grease, and grime are all easily removed using cleansers such as Soft Scrub®, Fantastic®, and citrus-based cleansers such as Citri Kleen HD®. Ammoniated cleaners should be avoided since they can leave a residue.

KYDEX 6200 is very resistant to a wide range of concentrated chemicals and solvents, so it withstands frequent cleaning with harsh cleaners without fading or staining.

Thermoformability: KYDEX 6200 forms to deep draws with low forces when heated to the upper range of 325-392°F (163° C to 200° C), and has unusually high resistance to hot tearing. KYDEX 6200 sheet can be formed on all standard presses, and cut on all standard die-cutting machines.

RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
