What is Co-extrusion?
Two materials are blended, for products where a single polymer cannot fulfill the complete product specification requirements, maintaining separate layers of each material at the required thickness. This allows the appropriate placement of each material to deliver the specified product part results. This is used when different properties such as strength, stiffness, wear resistance and oxygen permeability are required

Tecdecking made of PVC is prone to get hot in direct sunlight so in response to this we have developed Tecdecking Cool. This is a completely natural raw material with unique properties which give it an unrivalled character. It is light, impermeable to liquids and gases, elastic and compressible, provides thermal and acoustic insulation, it is a fire retardant and highly abrasion-resistant. Furthermore, it is completely biodegradable, renewable and recyclable. Materials are composed from one of the largest cork producers in the world. From this cork is derived a cork rubber composite material combining cork and selected rubbers leading to further unique properties. The final product is produced in roll form and provides a durable and slip resistant deck covering, both easy to maintain and clean.
Deckfab provides two types of Tecdecking Cool rolls to Distributors
1) Rolls with Caulking Channels. Distributors may also sell the product cut “off the roll” for DIY enthusiasts
2) Plain rolls in panels of 2m x1m and 3m x 1m which are then used as sheets for cutting more intricate shapes on a CNC machine and producing curved margin corners to be used in conjunction with the product above.
