Keith Hechtel, Senior Director of Business Development for Curbell Plastics, commented on the paper. “Because of their extreme durability and availability in virtually any color, KYDEX® Thermoplastic sheet materials have been widely used for commercial aircraft interiors for decades. Now these aerospace-grade plastics are being used instead of high pressure laminates to create retail store fixtures and kiosks that are aesthetically pleasing and extremely durable. Fixtures made from KYDEX® sheet have a modern, eye-catching appearance. These materials also result in considerable cost savings for retailers since they are extremely resistant to chipping and breaking during shipping and from in-store traffic. KYDEX® sheet is available in flame retardant grades, which makes the material safer for retail store customers and employees.”
