Kydex® T Sheet
Kydex® T is a proprietary acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with fire retardant ABS/PVC (FR-ABS) formulations but with significantly higher impact strength and extensibility. Unlike FR-ABS, Kydex® T is less hygroscopic, and typically does not require pre-drying. This outstanding material offers superior impact resistance (800J/m), more uniform forming with less wall thinning and offers significantly greater resistance to a broad range of corrosive chemicals and cleaning solutions.
P-3 (Velour Matte Texture) will be the Standard Stock Finish of Kydex T Sheet. (other textures available with Minimum Order Quantity)
If you require immediate availability with a P-1 Finish (Level Hair Cell Finish), switch to
Kydex 100 Sheet which is standard with P-1 Finish.

Superior cost/performance over FR ABS sheet
Higher breakage resistance (Notched Izod test) than competitive thermoplastics
Available in eight gauges from 0.028" (0.71 mm) and up
