The standard industry offering for Kydex is changing over to a smaller, shallower hair cell pattern with a matte finish. Interstate Plastics is not following suit.

“We are continually listening to our customer’s needs and desires. In sticking with our traditional Calcutta Kydex T offering, we stand with the consumer. This is what our customer’s request, and this is what we plan to continue to offer.” 
–Stephen Sowinski, Ecommerce Director.

With a deep and wide hair cell, it is more resistant to surface scratches and gives a much better representation of the faux-leather look; both desirable characteristics to our professional and hobbyist IWB gun holster and knife sheath manufacturers as well as do-it-yourselfers.

Interstate Plastics is happy to provide the new shallow Kydex hair cell texture upon request. This industry change allows for more choice when ordering, and we are happy to provide the customer with the texture that works for them. In addition, Interstate Plastics is proud to announce we will now be carrying Kydex in a thinner .080” thickness. This is a new gauge, not previously available. To order or learn more about these changes, contact Interstate Plastics today.
