What is CER-DECK?2020-06-17T15:57:07+02:00

Cer-Deck is a non-toxic mat made of expanded synthetic rubber, specifically formulated for marine applications, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Cer-Deck is odorless and provides thermal and acoustic insulation. Produced in two-color sheets, it has a non-slip surface that is comfortable for bare feet. Stable in light, it resists oils, solvents, and weather elements.
Its low thermal conductivity, unlike other teak-like products, ensures a surface that does not get too hot even when exposed to the sun.
Cer-Deck is a floating material that is essentially non-stick and water-repellent, free from any form of absorption, so dirt stays on the surface without penetrating inside.
It can be customized in various shapes with contrasting colored planks for text, logos, and brands.

Use a metal spatula and start peeling off the Cer-Deck from a corner of the item/mat.
