Kydex LLC officially opened a state-of-the art materials testing facility, called FSTLab at its Bloomsburg, Penn. facility in May.
The FSTLab is a space where suppliers, engineers, processors, and end users collaborate with Kydex research, development and design teams on new fire-resistant technologies and materials, and where Kydex engineers perform regulatory tests on products throughout the development cycle.
“At Kydex, we recognize the challenges our clients face. In high profile, highly-regulated industries like aviation and mass transit, sourcing design-forward products that meet industry compliance can be a big challenge.” said Ronn Cort, president at Kydex. “There is no initiative more important than safety. No matter how safe materials are, there is always an opportunity for improvement. The FSTLab aligns with our core commitments to the industries we serve: service, speed, and superiority. Our team of engineers and chemists will be able to further reduce development time of new formulations, in our ongoing commitment to making our products lighter, safer, and more sustainable.”
