More on Infused Imaging™
Traditionally, design or pattern is achieved in thermoplastic sheet by adding material to its surface or by printing on the surface. Infused Imaging™ integrates design into any KYDEX® Thermoplastic sheet product without the challenges capped and printed materials bring (delamination and peeling).
Furthermore, KYDEX® sheets with Infused Imaging™ retain the chemical and flammability properties of the KYDEX® sheet polymer, so they continue to meet compliance standards. It is the ultimate in customization without the compromise of capped or printed solutions. Infused imaging was first introduced to the aviation interiors market at the Aircraft Interiors Expo, Hamburg in 2015.
