Teniludius, the mystery material is most likely urethane foam - easy to insert and spread within the whole handle, pretty easy to remove and has the edge over silicon because it gives the customers the choice of various weights by using different density foams and still filling the whole void.

The foam provides the dampening qualities regardless of it's density because it will fill the whole handle and its quite brittle and prevents flexing of the handle and less rebound energy lost to flexing.

You just have to notice what Wilson is doing in their own handles to see the use of foam already there in the industry. I'm guessing P1 are using something similar.
