400 Kydex

Kydex P-1 Black 2440 x 1220 x 2mm

 

 

Kydex T is a fire retardant thermoplastic with high impact strength and extensibility, offering a significant resistance to a broad range of corrosive chemicals and cleaning solutions. Kydex can be easily thermoformed to complex shapes which gives it wide spread use in aerospace application as well as home DIY projects…

Kydex T a thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with fire retardant ABS/PVC (FR-ABS) formulations but with significantly higher impact strength and extensibility.

Since Kydex T is less hygroscopic, unlike FR-ABS, it typically does not require pre-drying, offers superior impact, more uniform forming with less 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 recognised to UL-94 V0.

One of the great features of Kydex is the ability to easily make protectors/covers that a moulded to fit a shape very closely.  This type of forming can be done using vacuum equipment or simply with a heat gun and some clamps.

 

SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS

 

  • Safety Covers
  • Electrical / Flame barriers
  • Replace ABS/PVC sheets materials.
  • Aircraft Interior
  • Mass Transit Vehicle Interior Components
  • Equipment Housings
  • Medical Products
  • Kiosk Housings.

 

MAIN FEATURES

 

  • Substitute for FR-ABS sheet with competitive pricing but superior cost/performance
  • Higher breakage resistance measured by the Notched Izod test than competitive thermoplastics
  • Among the most rigid of thermoforming materials with a modulus of elasticity of 2482 MPa
  • East to form with excellent part definition and deep draw characteristics
  • Recognised by Underwriters Laboratories for Standard 94 V-0, 5V in all thicknesses
  • Form times similar to FR-ABS making it an easy transition from competitive products.
  • Endorsed by the Royal Institute of Public Health for conformance to the standard of Hygienic Merit.

 

 

Thermal Insulation

Thermal Insulation is normally requested for two reasons; firstly when electrical insulation is required to work in high temperature ranges, secondly when there is need to prevent the loss of heat from a system

Electrical Insulation

Electrical insulation is chosen for its ability to resist the flow of electricity, nonconductive, it can be supplied in flexible thin films, thicker flexible laminates or rigid laminates and can be offered to suit various temperature ranges.
