What is PlasDECK made of?
PlasDECK is made of specially formulated flexible PVC. This durable material contains non-migrating plasticizers, the highest UV protection, and anti-fungal agents to ensure that PlasDECK will look great for a very long time. PlasDECK has no wood or cork content which would deteriorate over time.
Will PlasDECK fade?
PlasDECK contains the highest UV protection available and this protection is mixed throughout the material, not just on the surface. This UV protection is automotive grade, which is the same type used in modern automotive plastics. PlasDECK will retain its vivid teak-like appearance for many years. Look at our weather testing to see how well PlasDECK holds up when exposed to the elements.
Is PlasDECK durable?
Yes! PlasDECK is designed to be extremely resilient and dent resistant. Heavy foot traffic is no problem.
Is PlasDECK slippery when wet?
No! PlasDECK has an excellent no-slip surface that’s superior to teak decking or non-skid fiberglass.
Is PlasDECK hot?
Like a natural teak deck, or anything dark-colored, PlasDECK will get warm in the sun. PlasDECK can be hosed off with water to keep it cool, just like you would with a teak deck, but PlasDECK won’t become slippery when wet. Deck shoes might also be a good idea on a hot summer day.
We have also developed a new series of PlasDECK material called CoolTEAK which is engineered to stay cool to the touch even in the hottest direct sunlight.
On what kinds of surfaces can PlasDECK be installed over?
Our adhesives will stick to wood, fiberglass, steel, aluminum, and epoxies.
What’s a premade panel?
You send us an exact template (or CAD file) of the area on your boat where you want to have PlasDECK. We will digitize your template and turn it into a CAD file that will enable us to cut an exact replica of your template with our CNC machine. Custom built preformed PlasDECK panels are sized to fit your deck and ready to be glued down in one solid piece. These panels are precisely sized to match your template and the installation is much quicker than the DIY method.
