Kydex - Durability By Design

James Latham is now the exclusive UK distributor of KYDEX® sheet, the exceptionally durable thermoplastic sheet that will enhance virtually any commercial, retail or educational styling theme.

Supplied in a wide range of colours, textures and patterns, KYDEX® thermoplastic sheets offer designers the ability to create an almost unlimited variety of flat and three-dimensional effects which can be achieved through techniques including; thermoforming, membrane pressing, post forming, brake forming, laminating and machining. This allows different parts to be produced using the most efficient technique yet still match in appearance.

KYDEX® sheet can be formed to compound corners and contoured edges, minimising the need for moulding and edge banding and enabling large area installations to have the appearance of one seamless, single application.  Even brand logos and messages can be embossed into the material.

Offering unrivalledlong term performance from its exceptional impact, chemical and scratch resistance, KYDEX® will not chip, crack, break, or snap, making it the perfect surface solution for demanding, high traffic or high impact applications in sectors such as retail, aviation, mass transit, marine and industrial.

The KYDEX® thermoplastics range will be distributed on a national basis by James Latham’s wholly owned specialist panel company, Advanced Technical Panels (ATP) which already has expertise in a number of these sectors.

Andrew Wright, Director of James Latham commented, “We are all very excited by this product and already it is having a big impact with our customers especially those in the shop fitting, hospital, education and exhibition sectors.

“The potential applications are just so vast. Most of us will have already come into contact with KYDEX® sheet without even realising it.  It is used extensively in the aviation industry, on aircraft for seat mouldings, food trays and drop down tables as well as for seating in high traffic areas such as departure lounges.

“The KYDEX® product line will take James Latham into a number of completely new markets and areas of business which until now we haven’t been able to exploit and we plan to develop this opportunity with our nationwide coverage over the coming months.”

KYDEX® sheet is available in over 3,500 colours, including granite, metallic and wood grain patterns as well as multiple surface textures and thicknesses from 0.71mm to 12mm. And if none of these choices meet your needs, we’ll make a custom colour just for you.
