Kydex® 160 Class I/A Rated Thermoplastic Sheet

Kydex 160 is a proprietary acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet that is used for laminating and thermoforming applications requiring a Class I/A rating. Unlike many other thermoplastics, Kydex 160 is less hygroscopic and frequently does not require pre-drying. Kydex 160 meets Class I/A building code ratings up to 0.125" (3.12mm) and is UL listed up to 0.080" (2.03mm).

SUGGESTED USES

Kydex 160 sheet can be used in both flat sheet and thermoformed sheet applications such as:

Interior Ductwork and Chutes

Laboratory Hoods

Shower / Tub Shrouds

Acoustical Applications

Decorative Ceilings

• Abuse Resistant Surfacing for Counters, Exhibits, Partitions, Doors, etc.

FEATURES
Kydex 160 is available in 6 standard gauges from 0.028" to 0.125" (.71-3.12mm), nine textures, a large variety of colors - including custom color matching, custom blank sizes, and very low minimums.

Kydex 160 sheet is more resistant to a wider range of concentrated chemicals than any other thermoplastic. Its superior chemical resistance allows for excellent cleanability because stronger cleaning agents can be used with no discoloration or surface damage to the material.

Kydex 160 is not available for field applied wallcovering applications. Please contact Kleerdex Company Customer Service with your requirements.

FABRICATION
Kydex 160 has good formability and extensibility and is extremely easy to work with once formed.
