SEKISUI KYDEX is pleased to announce the launch of their newest product line, Kleerdex™ Custom Translucents, developed to elevate the passenger experience.
Kleerdex™ is a fully compliant, decorative translucent thermoplastic developed for aviation interiors. Designers can achieve refined cabin architecture using a blend of tactile elements, patterns, and hues. “With our custom translucent solutions, airlines can enhance their brand in areas such as privacy panels, stowage compartments, galleys, and more. Combining texture, colour, and imagery with light provides passengers with a highly-desirable sense of privacy and a brighter, more spacious atmosphere,” said Karyn McAlphin, Design Director, SEKISUI KYDEX.
“The SEKISUI KYDEX designLab® and appLab™ teams recognized the desire to develop a solution that allows designers to draw inspiration from architectural design and navigate the demanding aviation certification requirements. Kleerdex™ Custom Translucents opens the door for the aviation interiors industry to incorporate design features that have been desired for years but may not have been possible due to certification or supply chain complexity constraints,” said Ben Smalley, Aviation Business Manager, SEKISUI KYDEX.
Limitless customization allows designers to realize their visions. Choose from a library of 12 unique texture options, mix and match colour to increase intensity or create a custom colour, and add digital imagery to create an environment that truly enhances the journey.
Because it was designed for Aviation interiors using KYDEX® FST CLR, Kleerdex™ meets the strict requirements for fire, smoke and toxicity while also being chemical resistant.
