During this year’s APTA Expo, SEKISUI KYDEX, manufacturer of KYDEX® thermoplastic sheet, will showcase their mass transit product portfolio, feature partner collaborations, and unveil their new product: KYDEX® 2210LT.
Explore how you can reimagine designs, replace heavier materials, and improve the overall aesthetic of your product to unlock possibilities never imagined before. Durable KYDEX® materials provide excellent resistance to graffiti, chemicals, and staining, and meet or exceed regulatory compliance and safety standards for the mass transit industry.
Maintaining a lighter weight over FRP, aluminum, or steel make KYDEX® a desirable and more sustainable choice for customers who expect products to last 20 years or more. KYDEX® Thermoplastics are up to 40% lighter than fiberglass, presenting an opportunity to transition from traditional fiber-reinforced thermosets to lighter recyclable materials that offer more flexible design options.
Experience the material performance of KYDEX® Thermoplastics combined with leading design through their collaboration with N + P Industrial Design. The partnership is dedicated to exploring new ways to make the passenger journey as exciting as the destination by bringing forward thinking and flexible design solutions to transportation. Featuring bespoke environments with adaptable design, SEKISUI KYDEX brings N + P’s designs to life at stand #1829 using KYDEX® Thermoplastics with Infused Imaging™ technology, a proprietary process that embeds imagery into thermoplastic material. Designers can use this technology to curate spaces that feel customized by using integral colour, imagery, and texture, without sacrificing strength and durability.
Also featured at their booth will be SEKISUI KYDEX’s new product innovation KYDEX® 2210LT, an EN45545-compliant product for the European market. Read the full new product launch press release here.
