Oils, Chemicals and Acids
Do not apply any teak oils, deck brightening chemicals, or any other product designed for use on a teak or a wooden deck. Do not use any acids, such as oxalis, phosphoric, sulphuric, hydrochloride, acetic or citric, to name a few of the ones found in cleaning solutions. Also, be wary of general deck cleaners offered in chandleries, many of which contain a variety of ingredients which may bleach or discolour your Flexiteek 2G deck, even when diluted correctly. Do not use any chemicals, solvents, natural solvents or strong alkalis on Flexiteek 2G.
Other Cleaning Materials
Before using a cleaner on your deck, we suggest checking your product against our list of products below and ensure that it is a neutral pH (pH7) product (pH-neutral products need to be used in temperatures below 30 degrees). Do not allow cleaners used on your decking or the other surfaces on your vessel to evaporate on the surface of Flexiteek 2G. Check the contents and ingredients of all cleaners; as these contain chemicals, solvents and acids that are aggressive and may damage Flexiteek 2G, especially in hotter temperatures. Always wash your deck with copious amounts of freshwater if you think any residue has contaminated the surface. Follow the instructions on the cleaner you use. Be aware that the temperature for using some products refers to the temperature of the deck rather than the air.
