What is SeaDek?

SeaDek is a superior alternative to marine carpet and traditional molded-in non-skid. Designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the marine environment, SeaDek is made from UV-resistant closed-cell PE/EVA foam that will not absorb water, and provides exceptional traction when wet or dry. SeaDek’s shock absorbing qualities deliver maximum comfort on the water, and fishermen appreciate its sound-dampening properties. SeaDek is fully customizable, and brings an aesthetically pleasing style to boats of all sizes.

How is SeaDek applied?

SeaDek utilizes an acrylic-based pressure sensitive adhesive for a robust bond and easy peel-and-stick application.

Can SeaDek be applied over existing non-skid?

Yes. SeaDek adheres very well to most molded-in non-skids and properly applied and maintained aggregate type non-skid paints, as long as the surface is cleaned properly prior to installation.

What is the best method to clean SeaDek?

The best method to clean SeaDek is with SeaDek's Dek Magic cleaner, which is specifically formulated for PE/EVA foam. If Dek Magic is not available, SeaDek cleans easily with soap, hot water, and a stiff brush. For stubborn areas, a number of household products can be used. Do not use acid-based cleaners such as MaryKate's Hull Cleaner.

Does SeaDek get hot?

As with any flooring product, darker colors will become warmer in the sun. Thanks to the closed-cell features of SeaDek, heat associated with any color will dispel quickly.

How long will it stay adhered?

SeaDek has a 3 year warranty, however with proper care and storage, you can expect a lifespan of 7 years or more. Our in-house lab constantly tests various substrates to ensure the best bond possible.

If I choose to remove the pad how do I do this?

SeaDek is designed for a semi-permanent installation, but can be removed. The best method is to use a plastic putty knife to get under one corner, then grip and pull off. If the PE/EVA seems to be sticking and tearing, apply small amounts of acetone to the PSA and continue lifting with the putty knife. You may want to enlist another set of hands to assist. Once the entire pad is removed, there will be a small amount of PSA left on the surface. Soak with mineral spirits for 10 minutes, scrape with the plastic putty knife and a rag. Once the PSA has been removed, use acetone to remove the mineral spirits.

Is the product pet friendly (dogs)?

Many people use SeaDek to keep pets firmly planted on the boat, however SeaDek is made from PE/EVA blended foam materials, so if scratched or clawed at enough, the product will tear or rip. With this being said, SeaDek’s closed-cell material will not absorb water if punctured. SeaDek is not warranted against pet damage.

Will the product stain?

SeaDek is extremely stain resistant, however a few substances, such as fuel stabilizers, bird droppings, rust, and mustard can be problematic if not attended to in a timely manner. Prompt attention to these types of spills will ensure easy removal.
