KYDEX thermoplastic boards

KYDEX boards are an extremely durable plastic material extruded from special thermoplastic mixtures of high mechanical strength, the properties of which have been developed based on the requirements of non-standard applications. KYDEX boards are used, among other things, to manufacture housings for medical equipment, parts for aviation seats, shop equipment and furniture and their parts. They are an excellent substitute for painted metals, glass fibre, HPL and many other thermoplastic materials, e.g. PC or FR-ABS.

The KYDEX boards are available in many varieties, in standard and custom colours, e.g. wood-like and metallic.
