Technology and materials
Pelican is the leading North American kayak manufacturer to use Twin Sheet Thermoforming (TST) technology. TST produces a stiffer, stronger, lighter product than is possible with other manufacturing methods. The combination of Pelican’s proprietary materials combined with the TST process results in a lightweight product that has unparalleled rigidity, exceptional impact and breakage resistance, outstanding longevity and superior safety.
RAM-XTM is a multi-layer material exclusive to Pelican. It is known for its high impact-resistance, its ability to regain its initial shape after violent impacts and its UV-protected exterior finish. RAM-XTM has become the benchmark of quality in the industry.
RAM-XTM Premium is a multi-layer polyethylene with an advanced resin in the top layer imparting a glossy finish and providing significantly more rigidity than standard polyethylene.
