KYDEX® 5555HI is designed to provide material deformation when used in components subjected to HIC (Head Injury Criterion) testing for increased passenger safety. It exceeds the flammability and smoke development requirements outlined in Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) 25.853 paragraphs (a) and (d). KYDEX® 5555HI exceeds a 55/55 heat release level and 150 smoke development that allows the product to be used as a stand-alone material or within bonded build-up constructions
