Kydex® 100 High Impact Fire Rated Sheet

Super tough, durable Kydex 100 acrylic/PVC alloy sheet brings new dimensions to thermoformers in: formability, rigidity, breakage resistance, chemical resistance and fire retardancy. This high performance thermoplastic sheet is available in a wide range of standard and customer colors; textures; and sheet sizes. It is Underwriter’s Laboratories Inc recognized for UL Std 94 V-0/5V and UL 746C and has 18 ft-lbs/in (953 J/m) Notched Izod impact resistance.

Suggested Uses
• Housings for equipment such as photocopy machines, instrument panels, computers, keyboards, telephones, etc.
• Hidden parts for equipment such as vending machines, air ducts, grilles, etc.
• Orthopedic braces
• Medical equipment parts (for example: centrifuge covers, blood analyzers, etc.)
• In-store displays
• Electrical equipment and any components requiring either UL 94 V-0, 5V or or UL 746C ratings

SUPERIOR FORMABILITY – For deep or hard to form parts or where good finished detail is required, Kydex 100 is unsurpassed.
RIGIDITY – Kydex 100 is more rigid than most other thermoplastics resulting in parts that will deform less when loaded.
BREAKAGE RESISTANCE – With a Notched Izod impact resistance of 18 ft-lbs/in (953 J/m), Kydex 100 offers unsurpassed resistance to breakage.
CHEMICAL RESISTANCE – Kydex meets the highest standard for chemical resistance for thermoplastic materials.
FIRE RETARDANCY – Kydex is recognized by Underwriter’s Laboratories Inc. for Standard 94 V-0 and 5V and UL 746C in all gauges and colors.

Excellent forming properties result in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail, plus easy machining and fabricating using conventional methods, further expanding finished part possibilities.
