Kydex ® Fire retardant thermoplastic sheet for thermoforming. Outperforms FR ABS.
Vinyloy™ 103
General Information
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
