|HIGH IMPACT FIRE-RATED SHEET|
Kydex T is a proprietary acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with fire retardant ABS/PVC (FR-ABS) formulations but with significantly higher impact strength and extensibility. Unlike FR-ABS, because Kydex T is less hygroscopic, Kydex T typically does not require pre-drying; offers superior impact resistance (15 ft-lbs/in); more uniform forming with less wall thinning; and offers significantly greater resistance to a broad range of corrosive chemicals and cleaning solutions. It is available in a wide range of aesthetic choices and is UL ® recognized Std 94 V-0/5V.
Kydex T is formulated to substitute for FR ABS sheet with competitive pricing but superior cost/performance.
Kydex T has higher breakage resistance as measured by the Notched Izod test than competitive thermoplastics.
Kydex T is available in eight gauges from 0.028" (0.71 mm) and up, in nine textures, a large variety of colors, custom blank sizes, and very low minimums.
Kydex T is among the most rigid of thermoforming materials, with a modulus of elasticity of 360,000 psi.
THERMOFORMABILITY : Kydex T is easy to form with excellent part definition and deep-draw characteristics. It forms with similar forming times to FR-ABS making it easy transition from competitive products.
ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES : Kydex T exhibits a Dielectric Constant of 2.76 @ 1 MHz, 2.53 @800 MHz, and 2.51 @1.9 GMz.
RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
