Typical Properties
KYDEX® thermoplastic sheet is a proprietary material that has:

  • Excellent aesthetic qualities
  • Superior impact resistance
  • Outstanding formability

KYDEX® is an excellent choice for thermoformed equipment housings, airplane, bus and train interior parts, kiosks, and POP displays where appearance, toughness, or complex thermoforming is required.

Bonding KYDEX® can be easily achieved with Plexus MA300, the workhorse of the industry. This is a two-part structural adhesive which will create bonds stronger than the KYDEX® itself.
