The panel is made from Santoprene, a thermoplastic elastomer which is much higher in quality than standard polymer. Santoprene differs from standard polymer as it is highly heat-resistant, allowing it to be used with centerfire calibers without it melting on the rail handguard. The cheaper alternatives made from standard polymer will melt on the rail from the barrels heat when in use on a centerfire firearm. This can potentially cause damage and burn marks on your valuable rail handguard which will need refinishing or a new handguard altogether.
