Polymer Resistance to UV Degradation is Superior
This test was conducted using accelerated weather ASTM standards. The competitor material on the right was not able to withstand a complete rotation of testing.The SeaDek material on the left can survive over a dozen rotations of testing before the polymer turns begins cracking and turning to dust.
Another Example of Polymer Degradation
Another example from a different competitor showing the ability of SeaDek to outperform the competition. SeaDek sample is shown on the left. The competitors material, which shows signs of breakdown, is shown on the right.
Improved Color Stability Compared to the Competition
The samples shown here use intense simulated light according to ASTM standards to test for color fastness and stability. The SeaDek sample on the left has minimal fading characteristics as compared to the competitor on the right. The same amount of testing was performed on both samples.
Better Tolerance to Heat
Notice the SeaDek sample on the left has barely changed its dimensional size after being cooked in the over 200°F. This competitor material had significant amounts of shrinkage and deformation.
