What is Twisted Traction decking made of?
Twisted Traction decking is made of closed-cell chemically cross-linked foams, which are manufactured from polyethylene (PE), ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA) or a high-tech blended copolymer. The fine cell structure gives minimal water absorption, a high buoyancy rating and excellent chemical resistance.

How should I look after my Twisted Traction deck?
We recommend cleaning immediately to reduce possible staining, as some materials can stain the decking if not promptly removed, including: mustard, fish hooks left to rust, fish blood, bird droppings.
Have a bottle of approved cleaner on hand to use when needed. For more details on how to clean Twisted Traction decking, check our Warranty & Care document.
Reducing longer term exposure to the elements when not in use, such as storing your boat in a garage or under a cover, will help extend the life of your decking and reduce color fade. Inflatable pool toys or water bottles stored long-term on Twisted Traction decking, or placing decking near reflective surfaces or beneath glass can be destructive to the decking, as these objects can refract/reflect light.
