Kydex 107 is a proprietary acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet designed for NSF approved applications that offers improved properties compared to competitive ABS thermoplastic sheet. It is made using only FDA approved raw materials for quick acceptance by the National Sanitation Foundation. It is available in limited colors, but a wide range of textures and sheet sizes.
• Ice makers, vending machines, beverage dispensers, and other equipment requiring NSF approval
• As a replacement for stainless steel parts where cost, weight, and/or color variety are important
Kydex 107 is formulated only with FDA approved (under 21CFR) raw materials to facilitate NSF approval for applications requiring it.
Kydex 107 has higher breakage resistance as measured by the Notched Izod test than competitive thermoplastics.
Kydex 107 is available in gauges from 0.028″ (.71mm) and up, eight textures, and custom colors.
Excellent forming properties result in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail, plus easy machining and fabricating using conventional methods, further expanding finished part possibilities.
