KYDEX® sheet – helping to build a better healthcare future

When it comes to building a better healthcare future, James Latham’s latest surface solution, KYDEX® Sheet, is the long-term partner you can trust.

The UK’s largest timber and panel products distributor is now offering this high performance, exceptionally durable thermoplastic sheet that also promises to significantly enhance any healthcare environment or styling theme.

Supplied in a wide range of colours, textures and patterns, KYDEX® Sheet offers designers the ability to create an almost unlimited variety of flat and three-dimensional effects which can be achieved through techniques including; thermoforming, membrane pressing, post forming, brake forming, laminating and machining. This allows different parts to be produced using the most efficient technique yet still match in appearance.

KYDEX® Sheet can be formed to compound corners and contoured edges, minimising the need for moulding and edge banding and enabling large area installations to have the appearance of one seamless, single application.  Even brand logos and messages can be embossed into the material.

With exceptional impact, chemical and scratch resistance, KYDEX® Sheet will not chip, crack, break, or snap, making it the perfect surface solution for demanding, high traffic or high impact applications. Plus, KYDEX® Sheet has antimicrobial properties that help in the fight against infectious outbreaks and the spread of contagious conditions.

The KYDEX® Sheet thermoplastics range is distributed on a national basis by James Latham’s wholly owned specialist panel company, Advanced Technical Panels (ATP) which already offers a number of other surface products for this sector.

Andrew Wright, Director of James Latham commented, “The potential applications for KYDEX® are just so vast and it is already being used extensively in hospitals plus it’s had a big impact with our customers in other sectors too such as the shop fitting, education and exhibition sectors.

KYDEX® sheet is available in over 3,500 colours, including granite, metallic and wood grain patterns as well as multiple surface textures and thicknesses from 0.71mm to 12mm. And if none of these choices meet your needs, then a unique, custom colour can be manufactured just for you.
