Low heat release plus integral frost-like, matte finish interacts with light, producing color that travels across the sheet.
KYDEX® 6513 is a proprietary, innovative, high performance thermoplastic sheet specifically formulated to meet the safety needs of the aviation industry while elevating aviation interior aesthetic. Color is filtered through frost-like finish to extend luxe design. Hues shift with movement of passenger or part, defining geometry and plane. KYDEX® 6513 is ideal to use with LED lighting, yet dynamic on its own.
Color and degree of effect may be customized extensively with a unique blend of special-effect pigments and specialized extrusion process. Our designLab™ team collaborates on each project’s customization.
KYDEX® 6513 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. Its excellent properties make it the ideal material to form two and three-dimensional aircraft components.
