Fire retardant thermoplastic sheet for thermoforming. Outperforms FR ABS. |
| Vinyloy™ 103 |
|HIGH IMPACT FIRE-RATED SHEET|
KYDEX V103 sheet is a recycled grade of a proprietary thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with other grades of thermoplastic sheet while offering improved performance. KYDEX V103 sheet is UL recognized 94 V-0 and 5V. It has thermoforming cycle times equivalent to FR ABS.
KYDEX V103 is formulated to substitute for FR ABS sheet.
KYDEX V103 has very good impact resistance.
Thermoformability: KYDEX V103 is easy to form with excellent part definition and deep-draw characteristics. It forms with similar forming times to FR-ABS making it an easy transition from competitive products.
RIPH: KYDEX is endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit
