Kydex® 200 General Purpose – Kydex 200 is a proprietary acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with other thermoplastics while providing excellent extensibility, good impact resistance, and excellent solvent resistance. It is available in limited colors and with higher minimums than Kydex 100 or Kydex T. Based on independent laboratory testing it meets the requirements of UL Std 94 V-0 in all gauges. It has 10 ft-lbs/in (534 J/m) of Notched Izod impact resistance.
Kydex 200 can be used to substitute effectively for both general purpose ABS and acrylic/PVC thermoplastics. Examples include: data processing equipment housings, photocopy machines, vending machine chutes, and consumer products.
• Kydex 200 is available in seven gauges from .028″ (.71mm) and up in eight distinctive textures and limited colors.
• Delivers performance advantages at an effective cost.
It is among the most rigid of thermoforming materials as demonstrated by its high modulus of elasticity. Particularly effective for pressure forming and/or where the part is going to be painted.
Meets the requirements of 94 V-0 in all gauges as tested by an independent lab.
Excellent forming properties result in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail, plus easy machining and fabricating using conventional methods, further expanding finished part possibilities.
