What is U-DEK made of?

Answer Question

U-DEK is made of closed-cell chemically cross-linked foams, which are manufactured from polyethylene (PE), ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA) or a high-tech blended copolymer. The fine cell structure gives minimal water absorption, a high buoyancy rating and excellent chemical resistance.

Why would I need U-DEK marine decking?

Can I add my logo to my deck?

Answer Question

How should I look after my U-DEK deck?

Answer Question

We recommend cleaning immediately to reduce possible staining, as some materials can stain the decking if not promptly removed, including: mustard, fish hooks left to rust, fish blood, bird droppings.

Have a bottle of U-DEK Cleaner on hand to use when needed. For more details on how to clean U-DEK, check our Warranty & Care document.

Reducing longer term exposure to the elements when not in use, such as storing your boat in a garage or under a cover, will help extend the life of your decking and reduce colour fade.  

Inflatable pool toys or water bottles stored long-term on U-DEK, or placing decking near reflective surfaces or beneath glass can be destructive to the decking, as these objects can refract/reflect light.

How long does U-DEK last?

Answer Question

If it is well looked after, U-DEK can last for 8+ years.

What’s the best way to apply U-DEK to small areas?

Answer Question

Small packs of U-DEK are available at our online shop. There are a variety of sizes in different colour combinations, all with a 3M marine-grade Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) on the back, for easy peel n stick application.

If you can’t find what you need, give us a call, and we can cut something to suit.

How long does it take to fit a deck?

Answer Question

Turnaround time depends on the size and complexity of your boat’s deck, and leadtime can vary depending on demand. Please give us a call to discuss your specific requirements, and we’ll give you an estimate.

Does U-DEK get hot?

Answer Question

In direct sunlight, the flooring will warm up, especially if a dark colour. However, U-DEK does not become too hot to stand on.
