KYDEX® sheet is manufactured by Kleerdex Company, a supply partner of Professional Plastics. KYDEX® sheet is an extremely durable thermoplastic alloys extruded in a range of colors, patterns, textures, thicknesses and grades. Specialized grades of KYDEX® sheet meet specific UL, FAR, MVSS, ASTM and/or BS fire ratings , and exhibit exceptional mechanical properties and chemical resistance required to produce components intended for demanding applications.
Grades of KYDEX® sheet:
•KYDEX 100 Ultra high impact, high performance, fire-rated sheet suitable for a broad range of demanding applications.
•KYDEX 101 White #62000 or black #52114 substrate with colored, weatherable cap for thermoforming letter backs of electrical signage. Eliminates painting.
•KYDEX 107 For National Sanitation Foundation applications. Numerous textures/sizes, limited colors. FDA approved raw materials. Cost competitive with ABS sheet.
•KYDEX 110 Super tough, durable METALLIC-colored, a proprietary alloy sheet, sets new standards for thermoformers in: formability, rigidity, breakage resistance, fire retardancy and aesthetics.
•KYDEX 115 Rigid, sag-resistant ceiling panel grade in .080" (2.03mm) thickness, available pre-cut. Class 10 rated for clean rooms. Also for food plants, computer rooms, operating rooms, etc.
•KYDEX 130 High performance sheet with integral granite pattern in five colors. Rated Class I/A for non-wallcovering applications. UL 94 V-0 and 5V fire rating.
•KYDEX 150 High performance sheet for building product applications. Rated Class I/A in gauges to .060" (1.52mm); Class II/B in gauges to 0.093" (2.36mm). UL listed.
•KYDEX 152 AR Super tough, durable sheet sets new standards for thermoformers and membrane pressers in formability, rigidity, breakage resistance, and abrasion resistance.
•KYDEX 152 WG Super tough, durable sheet is available in five aesthetically pleasing woodgrain patterns. This material brings new dimensions to thermoformers and membrane pressers in extensibility, toughness, and fire retardancy in a woodgrain design.
•KYDEX 160 High performance sheet for building product and clean room applications. Rated Class I/A and Class 10 in gauges to .125" (3.12mm). UL listed.
•KYDEX 160A A thermoplastic sheet that is used for laminating and thermoforming applications. Meets the Australian fire retardant properties of AS 1530.3 and 1530.4.
•KYDEX 161 A proprietary, high performance thermoplastic sheet that meets the M1 requirement for the French Epiradiateur Test NFP 92-501.
•KYDEX 1900 Mid-temperature aircraft grade with improved heat distortion characteristics for higher in-service temperatures 168-178°F (75-81°C). Meets FAR requirement 25.853(a).
•KYDEX 200 General purpose sheet with good impact resistance, excellent extensibility and solvent resistance. Cost competitive with many other thermoplastics.
•KYDEX 301 A proprietary Bi-layer thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with fire retardant ABS (FR-ABS) formulations but with superior properties ... it is less hygroscopic than FR-ABS ... eliminates drying.
•KYDEX 510 KYDEX sheet of any color with a clear, weatherable cap. Caps also available with black/white or rust/gray granite patterns.
•KYDEX 550 Weatherable, monolithic (no cap) sheet in limited light colors. Excellent impact resistance.
•KYDEX 6185 High-temperature aircraft grade with improved heat distortion characteristics for higher in-service temperatures 180-195°F (82-90.5°C). Meets FAR requirement 25.853(a).
•KYDEX 6200 High performance grade for mass transit vehicle interiors. Meets FTA and FRA fire requirements. Meets low smoke generation requirements.
•KYDEX 6565 High performance grade for aircraft interiors. Meets FAR fire requirements 25.853 (a) and (d).Meets low smoke and low RHR generation requirements.
•KYDEX L Damage-resistant laminating material. Ratings of Class I/A and UL 94 V-0 in gauges to .040 (1.02mm). Can also be thermoformed and membrane pressed.
•KYDEX T High impact, high performance, fire-rated sheet. Cost competitive with flame retardant ABS, but with great impact and extensibility.
•KYDEX V Recycled grade of Kydex "utility black" #52065 sheet. Excellent performance-to-cost ratio.
•KYDEX V100 Recycled black #52114 sheet. Rated UL 94 V-0. Excellent performance-to-cost ratio.
•KYDEX V102 Recycled beige #72401, gray #52346, or black #52114 Kydex sheet with cap in select colors. Rated UL 94 V-0 and 5V.
•KYDEX V103 A recycled grade of a proprietary thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with other grades of thermoplastic sheet while offering improved performance.
