What is KYDEX®?
KYDEX® sheet is an acrylic-polyvinyl chloride alloy produced by the Kleerdex. Engineered for thermoforming fabrication, KYDEX sheet, combines the advantageous properties of both the acrylic and the polyvinyl chloride components. From acrylic, it obtains superior rigidity and formability; from PVC, outstanding toughness, chemical resistance and good interior finish ratings.
The combination of strength properties of KYDEX sheet places it at the highest level among thermoforming materials. Its modulus of elasticity in flexure is 330,000 psi - 50% higher than many other sheets.
Parts formed of KYDEX sheet will be much more rigid and will deform less when loaded. This is of particular importance in deep formed parts with thin wall sections. KYDEX sheet offers rigidity along with a high degree of toughness and resilience.
KYDEX sheet is a relatively hard thermoplastic with a hardness of 90 on the Rockwell R scale. In service, this excellent abrasion resistance is further enhanced by the grained surface of the KYDEX sheets.
KYDEX sheet has a UL classification of 94 V-0.
