Plastics 2000 - KYDEX Sheet - 0.080" Thick, Black, 8" x 12", 2 PACK

Model: V   |    Mpn: P2K-KYDEX-080-8x12-52114-2P   |    PartNumber: P2K-KYDEX-080-8x12-52114-2P   |   Asin: B077S5N6TP

KYDEX
KYDEX sheet has excellent forming properties, which results in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail. KYDEX sheet forms to deep draws with low forces when heated to the upper end of the forming temperature range. Unlike many other thermoforming sheets, KYDEX sheet has unusually high resistance to hot tearing.

Forming Guidelines
- Oven temperatures should be set differently than the settings used for ABS or FR-ABS.

- Typical heater settings (percentage timers) are 30% - 50% top heaters and 50% - 70% bottom heaters.
- The most frequent problem is trying to heat the sheet too quickly, particularly on the primary surface.
- Cycle times will vary depending on the oven conditions and grade of KYDEX sheet being formed.
- When forming KYDEX sheet, it is better to rely on the sheet appearance during heating than on fixed cycle times.
- Forming temperatures - Guidelines: (Sheet should not exceed 204 C (400 F).

165 - 177 C (330 - 350 F) for 3.20mm (0.125")

- Ideally the core sheet temperature should be within 10 F of the surface temperature.

Sheet Appearance During Heating
As KYDEX sheet is heated, the inherent stresses in the sheet will relax.

Stage I: The heating is marked by wide undulations and softening.

Stage II: The material will start to form small ripples (known as oil canning). .

Stage III: The material will start to smooth out and sag (KYDEX sheet will generally sag less than other thermoplastics due to its high melt strength. .

Stage IV: The ripples will have smoothed out indicating that most stresses have been removed. 10 to 30 seconds afterwards the sheet is ready to form.

Features

  • Higher breakage resistance than competitive thermoplastics as measured by the Notched Izod test
  • Among the most rigid of thermoforming materials with a modulus of elasticity of 2,482 MPa (360,000 psi)
  • Easy to form with excellent part definition and deep-draw characteristics
  • Great for knife sheaths and gun holsters
  • Made in USA

A great alternative to traditional glass.

With so many advantages over glass, cell cast acrylic sheets are popular with both professionals and do-it-yourself hobbyists.

Acrylic is stronger than glass . Impact tests have shown that acrylic is many times stronger than glass.

Acrylic is lighter than glass . A sheet of glass weighs twice as much as the same size sheet of acrylic.

Acrylic sheets are safer than glass . Unlike glass, acrylic does not normally crack or shatter.

Cell Cast Acrylic Sheets are easy to fabricate.

They can be cut with a table, band, or jig saw, drilled, routed, or thermoformed, without melting. When polished, cell cast acrylic shines with a high luster. It withstands exposure to intense sunlight, extreme cold, abrupt changes in temperature, salt water spray, and more. Cell cast acrylic sheets are ultraviolet light resistant and will not yellow under normal sun exposure.

With hundreds of applications, you'll never run out of ways to use cell cast acrylic sheets. Use them for:

Lexan Sheet - Polycarbonate - .060" - 1/16"Thick, Clear, 12" x 12" Nominal

Model: 81364   |    Mpn: Poly-Clear-1/16-12x12   |    Ean: 0615435918655   |    PartNumber: Poly-Clear-1/16-12x12   |   Asin: B0051X1GVI

Polycarbonate sheet combines high impact and temperature resistance with optical clarity and can be utilized for secondary glazing behind existing glazing for economical protection against breakage or intrusion. Polycarbonate sheet can be cut, sawn, drilled and milled by using standard workshop equipment without the risk of cracking and breakage and is therefore an excellent candidate for fabricating a wide range of indoor applications such as machine guards etc. Polycarbonate sheet can be easily thermoformed into complex parts while retaining its excellent properties necessary for demanding applications such as vandal proof street furniture. Polycarbonate sheet may be decorated using a wide variety of modern techniques such as painting and screen printing.

Unlike most thermoplastics, polycarbonate can undergo large plastic deformations without cracking or breaking. As a result, it can be processed and formed at room temperature using sheet metal techniques, such as forming bends on a brake. Even for sharp angle bends with a tight radius, no heating is generally necessary. This makes it valuable in prototyping applications where transparent or electrically non-conductive parts are needed, which cannot be made from sheet metal

Light transmission
Transparent Polycarbonate sheet have excellent light transmission, dependent of thickness between 84 - 87%.

Fire performance
Polycarbonate sheet has good fire behavior characteristics. Lexan sheet does not contribute significantly to the spread of fire or to the generation of toxic gases. For details please contact your local sales office.

Features

  • Clear protetive film on **BOTH** sides of sheet. One side has printing. The other side is clear / frosted and hard to see.
  • Lexan is one of the manufactures of the material type Ploycarbonate

Plastics 2000 - KYDEX Sheet - 0.060" Thick, Black, 12" x 12", 2 PACK

Model: V   |    Mpn: P2K-KYDEX-060-12x12-52114-2P   |    PartNumber: P2K-KYDEX-060-12x12-52114-2P   |   Asin: B077SJPD83

KYDEX
KYDEX sheet has excellent forming properties, which results in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail. KYDEX sheet forms to deep draws with low forces when heated to the upper end of the forming temperature range. Unlike many other thermoforming sheets, KYDEX sheet has unusually high resistance to hot tearing.

Forming Guidelines
- Oven temperatures should be set differently than the settings used for ABS or FR-ABS.

- Typical heater settings (percentage timers) are 30% - 50% top heaters and 50% - 70% bottom heaters.
- The most frequent problem is trying to heat the sheet too quickly, particularly on the primary surface.
- Cycle times will vary depending on the oven conditions and grade of KYDEX sheet being formed.
- When forming KYDEX sheet, it is better to rely on the sheet appearance during heating than on fixed cycle times.
- Forming temperatures - Guidelines: (Sheet should not exceed 204 C (400 F).

165 - 177 C (330 - 350 F) for 3.20mm (0.125")

- Ideally the core sheet temperature should be within 10 F of the surface temperature.

Sheet Appearance During Heating
As KYDEX sheet is heated, the inherent stresses in the sheet will relax.

Stage I: The heating is marked by wide undulations and softening.

Stage II: The material will start to form small ripples (known as oil canning). .

Stage III: The material will start to smooth out and sag (KYDEX sheet will generally sag less than other thermoplastics due to its high melt strength. .

Stage IV: The ripples will have smoothed out indicating that most stresses have been removed. 10 to 30 seconds afterwards the sheet is ready to form.

Features

  • Higher breakage resistance than competitive thermoplastics as measured by the Notched Izod test
  • Among the most rigid of thermoforming materials with a modulus of elasticity of 2,482 MPa (360,000 psi)
  • Easy to form with excellent part definition and deep-draw characteristics
  • Great for knife sheaths and gun holsters
  • Made in USA

HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) Sheet, Opaque Off-White, Standard Tolerance, ASTM D4976-245, 0.500" Thickness, 12" Width, 24" Length

Model: HDPS-0500-F   |    Mpn: HDPS-0500-F   |    Ean: 0792273162195   |    PartNumber: HDPS-0500-F   |   Asin: B000ILHWAM

The opaque off-white HDPE sheet has a standard tolerance and meets American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM D4976-245 specifications. HDPE (high density polyethylene) is a rigid, tough plastic that offers good chemical resistance and low moisture absorption. HDPE is stronger and more rigid than LDPE.

Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.

Tensile strength, used to indicate the material s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.
