All Aqua Lily Pad two-layer foam products contain our proprietary FlexCore Technology. FlexCore adds reinforcement to the foam providing puncture through and rip stop resistance, (liken to rip stop nylon used in tents).
FlexCore adds strength without adding weight or roll memory to the pad.
We have seen other pads on the market that describe a woven fabric in the core or on the surface. This type of fabric adds weight to the product, as much as 10 lbs. per average pad length, but more importantly, makes those pads difficult to roll up. These fabrics also add stiffness causing pads to exhibit “roll memory”. Roll Memory is where the pad looks like a two-ended toboggan on the water, as the pad does not want to lay flat. FlexCore has no memory, only roll memory from the foam, and thus our pads lay flatter on the water, quicker, when unrolled for use.
One of the most valued features of FlexCore Technology is the flexibility of our pads. As a result of this designed structure, Aqua Lily Pads featuring FlexCore Technology remain very easy to roll, unroll and store.
