Specification for this product family
Frequently bought together
Is a general purpose ABS product that has good impact strength, and good hot strength for thermo forming. It is an amorphous thermoplastic material and therefore, processes easier than some other thermoplastic materials.
ABS may be used for interior applications such as appliance parts, tub and shower wall surrounds, and interior automotive trim. With the addition of a weatherable cap it may also be used in many outdoor applications.
Parts made with ABS may be joined with machine screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, and spring steel fasteners. Thread cutting or thread-forming screws is an economical means of securing separate joints. Formed parts may be joined with Methylene Chloride if maximum impact strength is not required. Press and snap techniques and sonic welding may also be used for the bonding of ABS.
End uses of ABS include:
Pickup truck caps
Boat accessories\ automotive trim parts

This plastic is easily cut with a small pair of tin snips, but it is too thick to cut with normal scissors. It also could be cut on a table saw or with a hand held saw. The size I ordered (0.06) is about the thickness of a US penny.
This is NOT textured the same on both sides!! One side of this sheet is smooth and glossy and shows scratches unbelievably well. The other side is a mottled, textured plastic surface. Be sure this isn't a problem for your project.

As I have no experience with this before, I can't rate this kydex with regards to comparison with others.
However I can attest that my FIRST project with this product went well enough that I have already made plans for several more sheathes and designs for other knives.
My first attempt was to make a proper sheath for my Becker BK9. I wanted a scout carry configuration to keep it out of the way (horizontal instead of hanging up and down), and I wanted to be able to attach other things to it with ranger bands or Paracord.
I would have to say that my first attempt came out at very nearly professional quality, with only a few design considerations that I might change in the future.
The Kydex performed as expected, and took about 5 minutes in an oven at 350 to become the correct softness. IT took a little trial and error to get the technique down, but once I did, my sheath came out really good.
It was super easy to use a heat gun to adjust and remold certain elements, and working with the tools I had was a snap, cutting with a band saw, and sanding went smooth and without error,
The Kydex arrived very clean, and I just wiped down the smooth side with some windex before use and it stuck together like it's supposed to so when I drilled my Chicago screw holes, everything lined up nice
I would add that this product seemed reasonably priced, for 8 12"x"12 sheets, you can make a lot of sheaths for a lot of knives.
my BK9 design used up every scrap of Kydex (I needed belt loops), but if I forgo the belt loops, I could have easily fit 2 Bk9's on one sheet.
Can't wait to try this on my other projects!
