Ultralon closed-cell chemically cross-linked foams 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.  No chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) product or derivatives are used, and no organic fillers are added to foams. 

U-DEK marine decking is a great looking and high performing durable, comfortable, easy to clean and non-slip boat floor covering option for all types of marine craft, from sailing yachts, motor yachts, trailer boats, to RIBS and personal watercraft. Just like our 3M™ boat wrapping materials, the Ultralon U-DEK boat floor material is made to last in the harsh marine environment. 

u-dek boat flooring

U-DEK is made from lightweight closed cell foam, offering a high level of comfort underfoot and excellent traction in all conditions. Durable and low maintenance, U-DEK is supplied in various colours and tread options to suit individual styles. U-DEK boat floor decking comes with a 3M™ acrylic based high-bond pressure sensitive and durable adhesive.

Form A Sign’s custom marine boat deck treads reduce noise in your hull, are shock absorbing, anti-slip and UV stable for 5-7 years.  U-DEK boat flooring also doesn’t absorb water and is easy to clean with water.  You can wash any bait or fish residue straight off your boat floor. 

Form A Sign only offers Ultralon’s newest and best boat flooring product.  New U-DEK 190 has a higher density than the previous 140 model, which leads to increased durability, lower susceptibility to light amplification, improved heat tolerance and less shrinkage. The increased tensile and tear strength and higher shear elongation means U-DEK 190 is one of the highest performing foams available for your customers’ decks.

How to digitally template your floor

proliner generation 4x boat flooring technology

Form A Sign utilise leading global digital templating technology to improve the overall accuracy of your marine floor template.  Our Prodim Proliner digital templating technology measures accurately with a wire. At the end of the wire is a metal measuring pen. With this measuring pen you can simply mark the relevant points, shaping around boat rod holders, seats, cup holders, hatches, steps, doors and curves. These points are directly translated into a digital DXF CAD file. Straight, curved and very complex shapes can be measured fast and accurate from every position. 

The Proliner is the fastest, most accurate, reliable and durable digital templating solution in the market. Measuring with a wire does not require targets and has no reflection inaccuracies and therefore the Proliner gives the best return of investment to marine fabricators.

Form A Sign can digitally template boats at our Noble Park factory.  Large boats that can’t be towed can also be templated on-site.  If you are unable to get your boat to us to be templated, we suggest you create a paper template of your floor with sisle material (available at most hardwares) thick paper or card.  Once you post this to us, we can digitally template your template.  We then produce a paper pounce of the template which we send to you to check measure fit in the boat.  This process continues until we have the perfect template.  Once your template is finalised, we can commence the design process.

Template your own boat floor using our guide

To remotely template your boat floor is easy. We request you gets some clear builders plastic from your local hardware store, sometimes called Grunt plastic, and a sharpie pen. Put the clear plastic over boat floor the areas you want to take a template of, then draw around with your sharpie pen. You will then have a template you can put on the boat flooring material. You can easily cut the boat flooring with a sharp knife. Our DIY sheets available on our on-line shop all come with boat floor installation instructions.

U-Surf Jetski Grip 

Surf Grip features all the same benefits as U-Tread with a narrower profile and groove tread pattern making it ideal for jet skis, boats and surfboards. It is great for your boat flooring when you want a bit of bounce absorption to help protect your back or knees.  You can purchase Surf Grip by the sheet and hand cut your flooring; or we can electronically template your boat and have the shapes routered.

How to clean your Ultralon marine Flooring

The easiest way to clean your decking is to use a high pressure hose 1 foot distance away from the decking.  For stubborn stains follow below.

STEP 1: To clean dirt, etc. from your decking, use U-Dek Cleaner and water along with a medium bristled deck brush. Spray directly on a cool surface and not in direct sunlight. Lightly move around the cleaner with a soft or hard bristle brush. Let sit for 15-30 seconds. Add a small amount of water to the surface and lightly scrub again before rinsing. Repeat if necessary. This cleaner is also safe to use on upholstery and carpet.

STEP 2: To remove suntan lotion, use the U-Dek Cleaner alone with a medium bristled deck brush. Put a small amount of the U-Dek Cleaner on the stain. Dip a medium bristled boat brush in warm water and work around until the oil comes out. Rinse with water. Repeat if needed.

STEP 3: To remove rust stains, use a cap full of Grunt Cleaner. Apply on the rust stain and allow to soak for 3-5 minutes. If necessary, use latex/nitrile gloves to massage the cleaner into the brushed or embossed texture of the decking. Rinse with water. Repeat if necessary, the rust stain will eventually be removed. With Grunt cleaner, please be careful to avoid getting this solvent on the sides of the decking, it could damage the lamination or PSA. Please be careful with all other cleaning products. Wear vinyl or nitrile gloves and eye protection.


• Mineral Spirits

• Grunt Cleaner (not as a general cleaner, okay for Step 3 application only)

• Acetone (if it must be used, avoid the adhesives as best as possible)

• Bleach (if used, dilute 1:1 with water)  

 For best cleaning results, tend to all stains, spills and leaks as soon as possible

Situations to Avoid

Long-term storage of items on the decking such as inflatable pool toys, tools or water bottles. Keep decking away from reflective surfaces or from under glass. These objects can refract/reflect light, thereby concentrating the beams to a level which can be destructive to the decking. 

Clean spills and messes on the decking immediately to reduce possible staining. Some materials can stain the decking if not promptly removed. Examples include: mustard, ketchup, fish hooks left to rust, fish blood, bird droppings, etc.

Light Amplification

Light amplification can occur when there is an intensification of sunlight through magnification, reflection, or refraction. This includes, but is not limited to, situations where there is a highly reflective surface such as stainless hardware, high gloss white gel coat or aluminium.

The angle doesn’t matter. It will just mean if the angle changes, the focal point (P) changes.

EXAMPLES of light amplification

Extreme burning causing warpage of U-DEK® material

Burning causing shrinkage

Reflection at certain angles

Concave areas of the gel coat where the occurrence is most likely


When installing U-DEK®, avoid areas around vertical reflective surfaces and glossy/shiny hardware. Do not leave inflatable pool toys or water bottles stored long-term ontop of U-DEK® or placed near reflective surfaces or beneath glass as detailed in Section II in the U-DEK® warranty. These objects can refract/reflect light, thereby concentrating the beams to a level which can be destructive to the U-DEK® pad/panel.

While U-DEK® is a durable product, it is recommended that reducing the exposure to elements, when not in use, will help extend the life of your decking and reduce colour fade.


The sun can reflect off gel-coat surfaces to damage the U-DEK® product. High gloss white and concave curves are particularly susceptible to light amplification.

For certain applications and under certain conditions, U-DEK® applied in the cockpit and other areas with vertical surfaces and/or reflecting off hardware/stainless, etc.

This can leave U-DEK® exposed to operational temperatures above 80°C (176°F).

Lighter colors reduce the light amplification problem. However, it will not be covered under our standard warranty* if Light Amplification occurs.

Other manufacturing defects will still be covered under our standard warranty.

*Please refer to the U-DEK® warranty for more information

Light amplification is very rare in plate and aluminium boats. Mainly due to glass doors/windscreens/windows or the like and gloss white paint.

Good practice is to offset U-DEK® pads 15mm minimum from welds (particularly on platforms, next to walls):


  • Allows for better drainage
  • Stops water pooling on U-DEK® pad (which magnifies the heat)
  • Provides safety margin for light reflected of wall panel (misses the U-DEK® panel)


When installing U-DEK®, additional ‘mitigating’ panels can be installed to lessen the risk of light amplification.


After installation, the preferred method of storage is that the boat (or any other surface of application) be covered.

U-DEK® pads are very durable, but they will last longer and the colors will fade more slowly if they are not exposed to the elements when not in use.

Examples include keeping the boat; in a garage,  covered with a canvas boat cover, in a covered boat slip, etc.

Boat Flooring Installation Instructions

TOOLS required:

  • Sharp razor knife
  • Isopropanol or mentholated spirits cleaner (preferred)
  • 25mm/1 Inch Masking Tape
  • Roller (preferred)
  • 3M Primer 94 (option for areas that will not have 100% adhesion)
  • 3M Edge Sealer (option for areas exposed to water regularly)


Ultralon Decking should be stored in a cool, dry, indoor location until installed on your boat.


Do NOT install decking in temperatures below 15˚C (60˚F) or above 25˚C (77˚F)
Do NOT attempt to remove or adjust placement once decking has adhered.
Check fuel vapor from the floor prior to installation as this will effect adhesives.
Check new fiberglass floors that all fiberglass mold release agents are removed (speak to your boat manufacturer regarding removal.)
If your fiberglass boat is older and chalky in appearance, clean with a deoxidizer prior to installation.
Ensure floors are clean of all contaminates prior to installation, eg oil, fuel, polish etc.


1. Thoroughly clean the surface area where decking will be applied using an alcohol based cleaner, such as Isopropanol.
2. Make sure all grease, adhesive, mold-release, wax and other substances are removed before installing the product. The area must be completely dry before applying decking.
3. Use a rag to apply a thin coat of 3M Primer 94 to the templated area on the hull.  This product increases the 3M adheision.


1. Before you peel back the adhesive backing, place the decking on the application surface to check correct fit and spacing and determine the exact location of the decking.
2. Turn decking over so that the adhesive backing is face up. With a sharp razor knife carefully cut the adhesive paper backing down the center at the shortest width. Be sure to completely cut through the backing paper WITHOUT cutting the decking.
3. Now peel back and fold the four corners of the paper backing.
4. Turn the decking back over and position it exactly where you want it installed.
5. Using the 25mm/1 inch masking tape, tape one side of the decking in position on the application surface. Taping prevents the decking from moving while installing.
6. Then carefully lift up the side that is not taped down and pull up the folded corners to loosen the adhesive backing.
7. From the center working towards the outer edges, slowly and carefully peel the rest of the paper backing while applying the decking. Apply even pressure with a roller over the decking to ensure there’s a firm bond between the decking and the surface area. A Roller will apply the required 2kg of pressure per square inch of decking.  Roll in all directions to ensure adhesion.


8. Remove the masking tape from the other side of the decking and repeat step 7.
9. The Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) must be firmly rolled and pressed down on all surface areas and edges of the decking to ensure there’s uniform adhesion.
10. If required 3M Edge sealer will secure the edge of your decking glue.  Place masking tape around the top of your decking product.  Use a small paint brush or applicator to put a thin line of 3M edge sealer around the outside glued edge of your decking. Once dry, remove the masking tape.  Do not allow the edge sealer to come into contact with the top face of your decking product.

What do our customers say?

“I’ve just returned from 6 weeks in The Territory, red dust mud you name it and the U-DEK has come up like new with a bit of a scrub using Vanish laundry detergent. Honestly it looks as good as new.  I can’t recommend this flooring enough. It even stayed cool under foot in the territory heat. U-DEK is the best decision we have made for the boat. We just love it!!”


Wilson Fishing

“Hey guys! Just wanted to say that your U-DEK U-Tread Octi is without a doubt the best flooring product on the market. I have had it fitted to my charter vessel for just over three years. If you need an ambassador for your product I would be happy to stand by it. I own and operate Wild Hinchinbrook Adventures and get plenty of questions about the flooring, it just stands up to the day in day out punishment.”
