Converting from Fiberglass to Thermoplastics

KYDEX® Thermoplastics have distinct design, cost, and environmental advantages over fiberglass.

Light weight, KYDEX® Thermoplastics are 100% recyclable making them an environmentally sound solution that supports end-of-life recyclability and life-cycle design. The manufacturing processes do not outgas VOCs or produce hazardous waste.

KYDEX® Thermoplastics offer more complex geometries and improved aesthetics than fiberglass alternatives.

As part numbers increase, costs are reduced using KYDEX® Thermoplastics because they are less labor intensive and do not require painting.

Properties of thermoplastics:

  • Extremely durable
  • Inherently chemical resistant
  • Recyclable
  • Safe to process
  • Light weight
  • Vast design capabilities: excellent part consistency and geometries / Integral Colour / Infused Imaging™ technology / Wide variety of textures / Dimensional stability
  • Less tools and higher productivity

Cleanability & Chemical Resistance

Aggressive cleaning agents and disinfectants are critical in eliminating surface bacteria and fungi to reduce the spread of disease.

Testing results confirmed that KYDEX® Thermoplastics:

  • are not adversely affected by industry leading cleaners and disinfectants
  • perform without loss of surface finish, colour fastness, or degradation of mechanical and physical properties

Using the right materials and understanding their compatibility with disinfectants is vital to ensuring a long, functional life.

KYDEX® Thermoplastics with Infused Imaging™ technology provides the look of texture on a flat surface that can be easily cleaned and disinfected.
