Sheet Products Keep With Green InitiativeKYDEX, LLC, a worldwide leader in specialty thermoplastic sheet manufacturing, has launched KYDEX 311 and KYDEX 351 MB. Created in response to customer requests for superior product at competitive prices, these materials are symbolic of KYDEX’s industry-leading culture of innovation. In keeping with KYDEX’s green initiative, both products contain reclaimed content as a result of an environmentally friendly, closed-loop manufacturing process.

The success of KYDEX 311 immediately led to the development of KYDEX 351 MB, which features the added benefit of Microban antimicrobial protection. Microban inhibits the growth of bacteria that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration. An integral part of the sheet, it won’t wash or wear away, keeping the surface fresher between cleanings for the entire life of the product.
