Read more on DEK-KING Synthetic wood decking materials:

DEK-KING is made of specially formulated flexible PVC material. The recipe is of course a closely guarded secret. Our material is durable and contains non-migrating plasticizers, which means that it will keep its colour. The material and ingredients used on our extrusions offer the highest UV protection, and anti-fungal agents to ensure that DEK-KING will look great for a very many years to come. Our DEK-KING has no wood or cork content which would deteriorate over time.

Dek-King® is an excellent PVC / composite decking alternative to the traditional wooden decking. Most of our prices are much Cheaper than many Boat Synthetic Teak Decking materials. We offer a quality product at a low price.

Our teak-effect synthetic wood decking will continue to look like newly installed teak decking year after after most teak decks have faded and split. Our synthetic teak is non porous which means that water, oil, and dirt does not penetrate the material.

One of the ingredients found in PVC is a special oil called “plasticizers.” On most PVC products these oils are usually free to move around within the plastic which often migrates to the surface and is washed away or it can also migrate to the bottom and compromise the adhesion to the surface, in our case, of your deck.

We took special care to make sure that this will nothappen with our product. Our manufacturing process our composite decking material ensures that the oil (plasticizers) will not migrate and will stay in place. Because of this special process you decking will not dry out or crack over time and the Dek-King will retain its superior adhesion - this also aided by our unique bottom 'T' shape design.
