  • Reflex
    An exceptional choice for swim platforms, decks, helm stations, floors, steps, and coaming bolsters, Reflex non-skid traction padding is a safe, comfortable, and durable choice that leaves other EVA products in its wake....

  • The Proof Is In the Padding

    Using Ultralon Polyethylene (PE) foams renowned for durability, performance, and dimensional stability, Reflex is unrivaled in its technology. The PE foam is 100% virgin polyethylene material with absolutely no clay or silicon fillers, eliminating voids and surface imperfections commonly found on EVA products. Reflex also has a higher Heat Distortion Temperature so they won’t shrink and leave behind messy glues. 

    To prove it, we put our padding to the test against EVA products using a third-party lab. The results speak for themselves.

    • HEAT: PE suffered far less damage/shrinkage in ovens at temperatures up to 160° F. 
    • STAINS: PE stood up better against stain agents like ketchup, sunscreen, and motor oil.
    • ABRASIONS: PE lost 4.82% less material after 500 cycles against an abrasion-testing rotary wheel.
    • ADHESIVE: PE required at least two more pounds of force to extract it from the substrate.
    • FADING: PE provides a more robust UV stability and color fading prevention.

    Routine vacuuming keeps Chilewich products in peak condition, and its BioFelt backing system features an integrated moisture barrier to prevent spill absorption and inhibit growth of mold and mildew.
