Decks: Deckote

Developed in 1975 as a heavy duty, semi-industrial coating system for horizontal surfaces. This water based, 100% acrylic coating has been successfully used on millions of square feet of decks, porches, patios, stairs, landings, boat decks and more. With two choices of base coat (the regular, and safe-t-tred skid resistant) and six different colour coats: slate, charcoal, rustic green, cedar, terra cotta and cottage brown, Deckote achieves legendary wear and weather resistance.

Deckote breaths because it is made from acrylic and contains no oils. Under the microscope, Deckote looks like a layer of salmon eggs. Between these "eggs" is a microscopic pinhole which allows moisture to escape, but will not allow rain to come in.
