Kydex® 6565 Low Heat Release Aviation Grade

Kydex® 6565 Low Heat Release Aviation Grade – Kydex 6565 is a proprietary, high performance acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet that meets all fire retardancy requirements set forth in Federal Aviation Regulations 25.853 paragraphs (a) and (d) (old(c)) including low heat release (<65/65) in the OSU rate of heat release test. It’s excellent properties make it the ideal material to form two and three dimensional aircraft components.

Kydex 6565 is available in over 200 developed colors, eight surface textures, and thicknesses from 0.028″ (.71mm) and up enabling you to satisfy both the functional and aesthetic requirements of any mass transit vehicle interior.
Kydex 6565 is very resistant to a wide range of concentrate chemicals, and is therefore eat to clean with aggressive cleaners such as Soft Scrub, Fantastic, and citrus-based cleaners such as Citri Kleen. Ammoniated cleaners should be avoided since they can leave a residue.
Most importantly, Kydex 6565 meets the stringent requirements of the FAR 25.853 paragraph (d) (replaces para. c), in all thicknesses and colors.

Kydex 6565 forms to deep draws with low forces when heated to the upper end of the proper forming temperature range. Crisp detail is achieved and rejects are minimized.
Kydex 6565 sheet can be formed on all standard presses, and cut on all standard die-cutting machines.
