Marine Deck 2000
Marine deck 2000 is a substitute for the traditional teak deck. Cheaper and easier to install Marine Deck is made from Cork, taking advantage of a greener product one that does not kill trees as it is formed from the bark which grows back. The cork is granulated and mixed with a urethane as a binder. A UV inhibitor is also added, before the mixture is cured in 20 ton presses.
There are many new products on the market which are a substitute for Teak. Most of them are synthetic PVC like products. Teak is a very expensive option for a deck and these alternatives save in material and labor costs. Marine Deck is flexible and easy to cut.
The application process uses a caulking compound to glue the cork compound strips to the deck and also to caulk between the strips.
Stazos web site has a report from the Delft University which claims many of the same qualities of Teak decking.
