Product Description

Size: 8 Pack - .028", Size - 12" x 12" | Color: Black, 52114, P3 Velour Matte

KYDEX® V
KYDEX® V sheet has excellent forming properties, which results in uniform wall thicknesses and crisp detail. KYDEX® V sheet forms to deep draws with low forces when heated to the upper end of the forming temperature range. Unlike many other thermoforming sheets, KYDEX® V sheet has unusually high resistance to hot tearing.

Forming Guidelines
- Oven temperatures should be set differently than the settings used for ABS or FR-ABS.

- Typical heater settings (percentage timers) are 30% - 50% top heaters and 50% - 70% bottom heaters.
- The most frequent problem is trying to heat the sheet too quickly, particularly on the primary surface.
- Cycle times will vary depending on the oven conditions and grade of KYDEX® V sheet being formed.
- When forming KYDEX® V sheet, it is better to rely on the sheet appearance during heating than on fixed cycle times.
- Forming temperatures - Guidelines: (Sheet should not exceed 204°C (400°F).

165 - 177°C (330 - 350°F) for < 1.50mm (0.060").
182 - 196°C (360 - 385°F) for 1.50mm to 3.20mm (0.060" to 0.125").
196 - 204°C (385 - 400°F) for > 3.20mm (0.125")

- Ideally the core sheet temperature should be within 10°F of the surface temperature.

Sheet Appearance During Heating
As KYDEX® V sheet is heated, the inherent stresses in the sheet will relax.

• Stage I: The heating is marked by wide undulations and softening.

• Stage II: The material will start to form small ripples (known as oil canning). .

• Stage III: The material will start to smooth out and sag (KYDEX® V sheet will generally sag less than other thermoplastics due to its high melt strength. .

• Stage IV: The ripples will have smoothed out indicating that most stresses have been removed. 10 to 30 seconds afterwards the sheet is ready to form.

Size: Thickness - .093", Size - 12" x 24"Color: Black, 52114, P3 Velour Matte Verified Purchase
The product was as described and shipping went smoothly. I used this to thermoform a small sheath and it worked perfectly (after I got the hang of it after a few tries). Just a few minutes in the oven at 225 F and it was flexible and formable. It took me a few tries to mold the way I wanted, but it was easy to put back in the oven and start over. I did leave it in a little long on the last try and it shrank about 1/8 inches on the corners, so if thermoforming be sure to watch closely when heating and leave plenty of extra on the edges until you know how much time at temperature it needs. Another thermoforming note is that the thicker .093 will not mold to complex/detailed shapes as well as thinner sheets, but will be much stiffer and stronger.

The sheet itself was undersized.
I guess my definition of 12" X 12" Nominal is different.
I would have expected it to be off by at most 1/16" but all four sheets were 11-3/4" X 11-3/4" that is a hell of a tolerance for nominal.

Size: 8 Pack - .080", Size - 12" x 12"Color: Black, 52114, P3 Velour Matte Verified Purchase
I began making kydex holsters and other kydex products in March 2013. I have been purchasing kydex from another company. I can get it in either 12x12 or 12x24. I penciled it out and could save money by purchasing kydex from Plastics 2000 through Amazon. When it arrived and I began using it I found that the 12x12 sheets are not 12x12. They are cut approximately a 1/4 to 3/8th of an inch to short. This results in me using two sheets instead of one for the product I was making. I will not order kydex from Plastics 2000 again! This kydex costs me more money in the end.

kydex i received is not bad but a heads up for prospective buyers. i make holsters with kydex and this kydex is a much smoother and shinier finish than kydex i've received from other suppliers. it also has a lower melt point than other kydex. i normally press my kydex at 300 to 330 degrees and this kydex will burn at that temp it is form ready at 250. i will use what i bought but i will probably go back to my old supplier. this kydex just doesn't look like what customers expect.

Size: Thickness - .118", Size - 12" x 24"Color: Black, 52114, P3 Velour Matte Verified Purchase
This product was great, and fun to work with. The thickness and texture was perfect for my project - making 3 adjustable cheek rests for precision rifles. I heated a test piece of kydex with a heat gun and while it worked, it was hard not to overheat, which would change the appearance of the kydex from a dull matt finish texture to slightly shiny one. So I cut out my kydex shapes and dropped them face up on a cheap electric griddle from Walmart ($14) set at 300º. The griddle method worked just wonderfully for me. It heated the kydex evenly, and made it limp as a boiled noodle. The only knock I had against the product I received was that the sheet did have some scuff and wear marks on the textured/visual side. I was able to work around those blemish areas, but it was a slight issue. Shipping and delivery were acceptable. Thanks.

Size: 8 Pack - .028", Size - 12" x 12"Color: Black, 52114, P3 Velour Matte Verified Purchase
I bought this stuff a while ago with out any knowledge on how to use it. Looked up some tutorials on how to work it and figured it out. I bought this stuff hoping it would be a cheaper worbla.

Things to know:
-buy extra to figure out how to work with it. I used two extra sheets to figure out how to used it.
-Its hard to cut even for the .028 thickness so have good scissors
-it does NOT stick together- I had to tape my mask at parts because i hard to cut into the eye part.
-you can reheat it as many times as you'd like
-it gets HOT once you heat it up so you have to mold it fast once it cools because it hardens pretty quickly

In all I really liked this stuff, it's pretty easy to work with for beginners. I would definitely buy again.

This Kydex is good to go. even though its advertised as "thick" its very managable, I like it because it appeared to me that the temperature to make it pliable was much lower than my previous brand of Kydex. So when first using it, watch it carefully because it doesn'r require as much heat as you may expect it to be.

It's a little expensive for a 1' x 2' sheet of plastic, but it is kydex and it is a fun material to work with. You will at least need a toaster oven to heat it, but a heat gun for softening specific areas of the plastic is recommended.
