Teak Deck Bonding

What is the application?

Deck coverings are of functional and esthetical importance. Teak has been used for hundreds of years as a durable deck material. The hard wood is very durable. Natural antimicrobial and insecticide substances cause an excellent natural anti-rot and weathering resistance. Watertight seals are therefore absolutely essential. Also, in addition to adding structural strength to the subdeck, a wooden deck contributes to the insulation in hot and cool climates alike.

Which products do you use in this application?

For timber and teak decks that need to be completely watertight and weather-resistant, Sika has developed Sikaflex-290 DC PRO. This extremely easy-to-use, weathering resistant, one component polyurethane deck-caulking compound can, once cured, be flush-sanded with the deck to supply a beautifully neat, clean finish.
