Kydex® V Utility Sheet – Kydex V sheet is a recycled grade of proprietary acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet that is cost competitive with other utility grades of thermoplastic sheet while offering improved performance. It is particularly well suited for hidden or painted parts since it has some degree of color variability. It is only available in black and in thicknesses from 0.040″ (1.02mm) and up in a limited number of textures.
Kydex V sheet can be used to substitute effectively for utility grade thermoplastics.It is very appropriate for hidden parts and painted parts and/or where fire retardency is not required.
Kydex V sheet is offered in gauges from .040″ (1.02mm) and up.
Kydex V sheet is available in roll stock at .040″ (1.02mm) and in sheet stock over the entire thickness range.
It is available in three textures: P1 Haircell, PC Level Haircell, and PF Levant.
Excellent forming properties result in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail, plus easy machining and fabricating using conventional methods, further expanding finished part possibilities.
