New BAK Revolver X4 Tonneau Cover Features Haartz Material

Mon, 01/08/2018 - 16:50 -- sfrederick

Acton, Mass. (Jan. 8, 2018) – The Haartz Corporation developed a new material for BAK Industries’ highly anticipated Revolver X4 tonneau cover. The cover, when closed, includes heavy-duty aluminum slats that secure the cover the full length of the bed on both sides, providing unrivaled strength and security.

The material’s durability is thanks to the polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-coated polyethylene terephthalate (PET) needlepunch nonwoven substrate. Unique to the Revolver X4 is the cabrio-grain embossing, which gives it a pebble-looking finish.

“The embossing for this material is a specialty of ours, and we employed it along with a low-lustre topcoat system to achieve the desired aesthetics, making it truly unique for BAK Industries,” said Gordon Goodwin, sales manager, automotive exteriors at the Haartz Corporation. ”Also unique to the Revolver X4 are the matte finish rails and seals, for a finished OEM look.”

The heavy-duty aluminum slats are topped with industrial-grade, matte finish vinyl, accompanied by new matte finish rails and seals that better match the bed rails on trucks compared to standard materials, making it a seamless consumer product.

The Revolver X4 will launch in January 2018. Stay up to date with the product’s availability on the BAK Industries website.
