HK Research, brings the marine industry its new ReFlex polymer gel coats, one of their Revolution series of gel coat polymers, which represents one of the biggest innovations in marine coatings in more than 70 years.

“What makes ReFlex and all our Revolution polymers so different is their ability to ‘flex’ due to the elasticity in their molecular structure,” explained David Higgins, VP of Marketing and Sales at HK Research.  “While providing outstanding in-shop application properties, the ReFlex Revolution polymer offers tremendous weathering properties and water resistance — all at a price competitive with traditional gel coats.”

According to HK Research, using a proprietary grafting technique, they have completely re-engineered the polymer’s molecular makeup to produce its Revolution series of gel coats. Flexible molecular crosslinks enable ReFlex to resist cracking under pressure, while delivering outstanding water and UV resistance. Revolution gel coat polymers are specially engineered to deliver outstanding performance in the shop and in the field. Although it is available in a variety of other colours, ReFlex is most often applied in its pure white form.

Based in Hickory, North Carolina, US, HK Research’s facility was designed exclusively for premium, polymer coating manufacturing for marine, aerospace, transportation and pool and spa industries.
