It is an acrylic-polyvinyl chloride composite engineered for thermoforming fabrication, and combines properties of both the acrylic and the polyvinyl chloride components. From acrylic, it obtains rigidity and formability; from PVC, toughness, chemical resistance and good interior finish ratings. Sheet thickness ranges from .028 to .500 and can be thermoformed, post formed, brake formed and laminated.
- modulus of elasticity in flexure is 330,000 psi.
- parts formed from sheet will be rigid and will see moderate deformation when loaded. This is of particular importance in deep formed parts with thin wall sections.
- relatively hard thermoplastic, with a hardness of 90 on the Rockwell R scale. This hardness, combined with a grained surface, increases its abrasive resistance.
- low flammability, UL 94 classification V-0
For some applications it is used as replacement for leather, where it has the following advantages:
- scratch resistant (Rockwell “R” hardness of 90)
- holds its shape better, and will not stretch or shrink under normal conditions
- lower friction.
The holster-making processes varies considerably. Some companies use injection molding. Each holster mold is filled with molten plastic, then forced into the desired shape with heat and pressure. Injection molding is fast and produces inexpensive parts, usually made from harder plastics. If an injection-molded holster is made from cheaper plastic, the material can cause rapid holsterwear and remove the finish from your pistol.
There are no injection-molded holsters made with genuine KYDEX-brand plastic. That’s because KYDEX is engineered from pure polymers; their extruded sheets don’t contain blended stiffeners (such as glass). KYDEX lasts longer than cheaper plastic and it’s far less likely to damage your firearm, no matter how many times you holster and un-holster your gun.
Any holster can wear the finish of your pistol. And it’s certainly true that pistol wear is the primary issue facing owners of KYDEX holsters. To minimize the problem, holsters made of KYDEX must be manufactured to follow the EXACT shape and form of the weapon inside them. They must apply pressure on the proper areas of the firearm – and nothing more. By matching the weapon and shaping the holster correctly, quality KYDEX holsters rarely present finish wear. We take considerable time to insure that every Weber Tactical Custom Kydex Holster Mag Pouch fits perfectly to insure minimum wear.

Most orders take 2-4 weeks to arrive at your door step from the time we get the order. Some special order take longer – up to 6 weeks. Every Custom Kydex Holster Mag Pouch we make is just that – CUSTOM! This takes time and expertise. Kydex is an amazing product but it must be handled correctly, heated and cooled perfectly and finished with care to insure that you get the very best product possible. From time to time we get a huge influx of orders. This can increase wait times. We will notate this in the banner when it happens.
We offer several options:
- IWB Carry
- 1.75 speed clip: Made from Nylon 66 plastic giving the clip strength and rigid power to grasp the belt and pants. Slotted contact points allow for cant adjustments.
