Protect the long-term performance and appearance of your products with damage-resistant KYDEX® sheet

DESCRIPTION
KYDEX® sheet is an extremely durable acrylic/PVC alloy extruded in a range of colors, patterns, textures, thicknesses, and grades to optimize long-term performance, appearance, and cost effectiveness across demanding and diverse end-use applications.

Specialized grades are offered to satisfy requirements specific to thermoforming, membrane pressing, post-forming, brake-forming, and laminating-and to fit a broad range of specialized applications, ranging from medical equipment housings and aircraft tray tables to retail store fixtures and trade show displays.

IMPACT RESISTANCE
No other thermoplastic sheet stands up to impact, scratches, and gouging like KYDEX® sheet. Depending on grade, it offers notched Izod Impact resistance to 18 ft. lbs./in. (953 J/m), and is available in thicknesses from .028 to .500 inch (0.71mm to 12.7mm) to withstand levels of abuse from moderate to extreme. Due to its high degree of toughness and resilience, KYDEX® sheet can also be stretched at room temperature to twice its original dimension without breaking.
FLAME RETARDANCY
Depending on grade, KYDEX® sheet is available with fire ratings of UL 94 V-0 and 5V, FAR 25.853 (a) and (d), MVSS 302, and Class I/A.
CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
Sulfuric acid to brake fluid to carbon tetrachloride, high performance grades of KYDEX® acrylic PVC alloys are more resistant to a wider range of concentrated chemicals than any other thermoplastic. In fact, KYDEX® sheet meets the highest standards of chemical resistance for thermoplastic materials as defined in ASTM D-1784 standard for Class 12454-C rigid polyvinyl chloride.
  DIMENSIONAL STABILITY
Low water absorption and a relatively low coefficient of thermal expansion give parts made of or with KYDEX® sheet high dimensional stability.
CLEANABILITY
Tough stains, scuffs, and graffiti can be removed from KYDEX® surfaces using strong cleansers with no staining, fading, or surface damage.
 
DESIGN FREEDOM
KYDEX® sheet offers unprecedented design and manufacturing flexibility since:
  • Numerous grades are available to provide properties and certified ratings required for specialized applications.
     
  • An uncommonly wide variety of functional and aesthetic effects can be achieved since certain individual grades can be manufactured using a variety of techniques.
  • Many colors, patterns, textures, and thicknesses are common to grades intended for specific manufacturing methods allowing multi-component end products to contain a wide variety of matching parts.

For example, a free standing display could utilize KYDEX® sheet for:
