Kydex T

KYDEX® T is a proprietary 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 wall 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 Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc® recognized Std 94 V-0, 5V in all thicknesses.
