Installs like wood,
lasts for years.
SuperDek composite is intended to replace wood for
structural applications. It can be fastened directly to structural members, or
other framing members just like wood.
Re-useable, cut down
SuperDek composite is durable and has a surface hardness
comparable with natural hardwoods. You can brush it clean and wash it
with soap and water. Patch holes with silicone or acrylic latex caulking
material. Epoxy glue can be used for abrasive resistant patching. Paint it any
color you choose. Power tools should not be used to sand the surface, as
damage to the protective capping layer may occur.
plastics; it is the “green” choice.
SuperDek is Glass Fiber Reinforced, High Impact
Polystyrene composite and is completely recyclable.
Moreover, SuperDek can help reduce the need for apitong wood in
the truck decking industry. Apitong is a Southeast Asian rainforest wood resource
which is often
illegally and unsustainably logged.
Cuts, drills and
fastens like wood.
Saw cutting: We recommend using woodworking power
saw with vacuuming bag. Saw dust may contains glass fiber therefore may be
harmful if inhaled.
Drilling: Just like wood. No special drills or tools
Fastening: Use nails or screws depending on your
application. For long lasting fastening, use screws, nuts and washers if
possible. Joist spacing of supporting members is similar to wood applications.
Painting is optional.
SuperDek comes with smooth, yet paintable surface
which does not require further field finishing. The slightly porous surface
allows paint to penetrate for a long lasting finish.
Like other polymer-based
composite materials, SuperDek performs optimally at certain temperatures.
For maximum performance under normal use, an operating temperature range of
0 to140 degrees Fahrenheit is recommended.
If your application involves unusual exposure or a severe
chemical environment, test samples or prototypes should be fabricated, exposed
to the actual materials and conditions of use, and then evaluated before full
production. Consult your SuperDek distributor for further information and
