Frequently Asked Questions

What is SeaDek?

Durable and shock absorbent, SeaDek provides not only an exceptional traction surface but also lessens the fatigue brought on from prolonged standing and working on hard decking and platforms.  SeaDek also protects your deck from scratching, chipping and dents.  Fisherman will appreciate SeaDek’s noise reducing qualities.  SeaDek is manufactured from non-absorbent, closed cell EVA foam specifically formulated for marine applications.  Sport fishing, sailing, ski boats, commercial marine, platforms and steps are just a few of the unlimited applications for SeaDek Non-Skid Marine Traction. SeaDek’s pressure sensitive adhesive backing makes application a breeze.  Just measure, cut, peel and stick, or give us a call and we will have an installer take care of it for you. It’s that easy!

How is SeaDek applied?

SeaDek utilizes an acrylic-based 3M pressure sensitive adhesive for a robust bond and easy peel-and-stick application.

Can SeaDek be applied over existing non-skid?

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.

What colors are available?

Stock colors are Caribbean blue, bimini blue, Bahama blue, midnight black, olive green, seafoam green, white, cool gray, beach sand, Island green, Sunset Orange, sunburst yellow, ruby red, aqua camo, army camo, desert camo, snow camo, mica, mocha, camel, storm gray, dark gray, and chocolate.  You can choose any color combo.

What is the best method to clean SeaDek?

SeaDek cleans easily with soap, hot water and a stiff brush.  But for harder surface stains or even everyday cleaning, SC Wake Boat Juice offers a great refreshing clean.

What is the cost per square foot?

Price is determined by material used and labor time.

What is the largest size I can order?

Our largest sheet size is 39”x77”

What is the life expectancy?

Five to seven years, longer if the boat is stored inside.

What is the warranty?

SeaDek Marine Products are warranted to be free from any defects at the time of purchase.  The EVA has a 3 year material warranty.  The PSA cannot be warranted due to many outside issues that may be present during installation.  Full warranty details are available upon request.

Can SeaDek sheets be seamed?

This is not recommended.  Even with a very small shrink rate, a small gap between sheets will be present.  We recommend leaving a ¼ inch gap between panels.

How long do I have to wait after installation to take my boat out on the water?

There is no need to wait! Once your SeaDek is applied and the pressure sensitive adhesive has been activated you are able to hit the water immediately.

How long will it stay adhered?

If proper prepping has been done, you can expect at least 5-7 years of life.

Can it be re-adhered if necessary?

Yes, if the edge has slightly come up, us an acrylic based super glue.  If the sheet has completely come up, you will have the clean the area thoroughly to remove any existing PSA and reapply another new sheet. 

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

Use a plastic putty knife to get under one corner.  Grip and pull it off.  If the EVA seems to be sticking and tearing, use the putty knife to jab the area.  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, scrap with the plastic putty knife.  Once the PSA has been removed, use acetone to remove the mineral spirits.

How do I prep the surface?

Use an ammonia based window cleaner or acetone to remove any dirt, sunscreen, wax, sweat etc.  Scrub well and let dry completely.  If the boat is new, you should repeat several times as new boats have mold release that may hinder adhesion.

Can I get a custom logo?

Yes, we can engrave logos and text if supplied with vector graphic of logo or given desired text style.

Is the product pet friendly (dogs)?

Our product is made of an EVA foam material so if scratched at enough the product will tear or rip. The product is a closed cell foam so you shouldn’t have to worry about the product absorbing anything.  We cannot warranty if your pet tears up your pad/s.

Will the product stain?

If attended to promptly in most cases you should be OK.  Fuel stabilizers, bird droppings, rust and mustard are known to stain if not attended to in a timely manner.

What temperature is safe to apply new product at?

About 60 degrees and dry is recommended.
