The Benefits


Tufdek® is safe for children, pets, and the environment. The high-performance water­based solution is very low odour and is VOC (volatile organic compound) compliant with the Canadian Clean Air Act and the U.S. EPA concentration limits.


Tufdek® is a durable, protective deck coating system that will resist water, sunlight, weather damage, and wear and tear. The three-step coating system is designed to permanently adhere to high-traffic surfaces like new plywood, fiberglass, above-ground concrete, and metal. Tufdek® is permanently flexible and will expand and contract with the substrate below.


Tufdek® is waterproof to protect surfaces from moisture damage. With regular maintenance, plywood decks will not rot, and metal surfaces will not rust, providing your surface with long-lasting protection that is second to none.


Tufdek® incorporates rubber non-skid particles for a safe and slip-resistant surface – even in wet weather condi­tions. On plywood decks, the slip-resistant coating also offers protection from painful wood splinters, which is typical of slotted wood decking.

low maintenance

Tufdek® is easy to clean and requires minimal maintenance. It’s mildew, dirt, and stain resistant and requires a quick cleaning just once or twice a year with Ducan The Duke® all purpose cleaner and degreaser.
