Marinedeck is a cork deck material, developed as an alternative for teak decks. The material is non-skid, easy to clean, with a long life cycle and very limited or no technical maintenance. To utilize all of the advantages and properties of cork, a hybrid synthetic binder was developed, improved and adapted to environmental requirements.
Cork is a highly homogenous material and consists almost entirely of cellular membrane through which no channels run. One cm3 contains about 40 million cells. Cork granules are excellent thermal insulators and can reduce heat loss by 36% or lower temperatures by 53%. In addition, the material is naturally water- and fire-resistant.
