By applying normal dishwater solvent or green soap. You can also use a power wash, something that could damage normal teak decks.

Yes, the fish blood will wash off if the boat is cleaned shortly after your fishing trip. You may use a power wash to achieve the best result.

Flexiteek is easy to clean

By sanding carefully with size 60 sand paper along the ribs.

Sailboats – use the mast, pooles, rope and empty containers filled with water. If you work in a cold period around +5 to 10°C, one or two big heaters (no fan) can increase the working temperature under the cover and speed up the drying time.

Powerboats – Use the flybridge or the navigation mast to construct a similar structure above.

Yes, a constant indoor temperature is perfect, not under + 15°C or over + 25°C. A high constant temperature is important in order to reduce the memory in the material/resin glue.
Avoid to install in direct sunlight.

Yes, with a sharp Stanley knife and extra blades. You need the steel ruler to support the cutting of the panels. Ordinary panels of wood has to be cut with a saw. Our panels come ready made with a predetermined distance to the next panel. You only fill small quantities of caulking at the top between two panels. You will not need screws to hold the panels together. You do not need clamps. You fit the panels together. However you must put caulking around corners, next to fittings, more around actual bends of the panel.

Our method with new panels/pre made mats of PVC has these advantages: Compared to the old method with panels of teak Expensive paper cutter or Stanleyknife is fine Panels are fit together Predetermined distance between panels Much less use of caulking, when using mats Easier to do fittings, bends, corners of the deck Panels can be swept and they are flexible.

Simplifying this process was important to us. With pre made mats we have made a complicated craft into an easy operation.DIY. Using a saw on panels of teak is timeconsuming and needs practice No screws, few clamps, much faster method You do not need to be a professional boatbuilder! Saves time and expenses Strips of wood are not flexible and needs adjustment. More complicated process.

Most tools are available at a well stocked chandler or a DIY a interior center.

The composition of the materials in the panels and the surface underneath needs to be strong and waterproof. Different bonding products are necessary for steel, GRP, wood.

You can prepare a small area alone like areas in the cockpit of a sailboat. On a large deck three persons should work together.

Our distributor will handle this. Note! You must pay VAT, local customs tax in your country and transportation cost to your own location.

The Flexiteek 2G are partly made from a soften PVC, with nano technique filler , colour pigment, etc.

Yes, we have tested the panels with several scientific institutions. Be aware however that any material with high density and dark color will absorb heat in strong sun light. This may necessitate the use of deck shoes on a hot summer day (this is our old material).

Our latest innovation called FLEXITEEK 2G have been developed to reduce thermal transfer in hot climates. Flexiteek 2G cools 30% faster under foot than traditional synthetic decking, allowing you to walk across it barefoot.

Yes, you may use hot air from a hairdryer to soften the panels and create the bend.

You should apply it to the boat within 2-3 months. Store the panels flat.

Flexiteek comes with a 5 year guarantee for the actual material.

Our Flexiteek caulking can be either white (ebony), black or grey in color. Our hard or soft caulking is either used to weld two straight strips together or used as a fixed bond between two strips in our production process. When we apply margin boards to a panel we use caulking and weld it by hand to a larger panel.

Expressions used are:

Adhesive – adhesive bond the panels to the deck. The adhesive bond is very strong, elastic and waterproof. The deck does not have to be drilled for screws or bolts, since the adhesive is applied to the whole surface of the deck.

Caulking – caulking is the actual process of bonding the panels together with a black elastic material. In the actual process of using primer and later caulking, direct sunlight must not shine upon the work in progress.

King plank – a wide panel of 125 mm. Usually you have to cut the centre board or King plank in order to create the correct fitting with the other panels. It is recommended to produce a paper template for such King planks and margin boards, before actually cutting the King plank.

Curing – the new deck from Flexiteek is fully cured when the deck can be cleaned.

Drying time – only when everything is dry after 2 to 3 days can you apply pressure and weight to the deck.

Containers as weights – empty containers 3 or 4 l. Fill these with water, and seal the container.

Foam – filler made of foam. Often used with surfaces of steel or aluminum.

Margin boards – boards at the outer edge of for example the hatch/deck.

Pot time – the time fluid can stay mixed with resin in a pot. Ready to be used.
