Introduction

KYDEX® 5555 is specifically formulated to meet the safety needs of the aviation industry.

General Information

KYDEX® 5555 is a proprietary, high performance acrylic/PVC thermoplastic sheet that meets all fire retardancy requirements set forth in Federal Aviation Regulations 25.853 paragraphs (a) and (d) (old (c)) including low heat release (65/65) in the OSU rate of heat release test. KYDEX® 5555 exceeds the heat release to a level of 55/55. Its excellent properties make it the ideal material to form two-and-three-dimensional aircraft components.

Features

  • Available in over 200 developed colours, various surface textures, and eight thicknesses ranging from 0.71mm and up.
