Today the choice to use a material other than teak for the boat deck is not uncommon. The valuable wood, widely used on most boats, has more than one rival on the market today. Refit Style is one of them, with its resin designed to resemble teak only visually.


Resin vs. Teak

The beautiful natural wood that usually lines boats, teak, is gradually losing appeal to boat owners. Poor availability and thus higher prices, significant specific gravity, and the high maintenance required are just some of the factors why the popularity of this solution is going downhill. Refit Style resin resists high and low temperatures better, loses less color, and has a longer average life than teak. It does not let water and moisture pass through, resists impact excellently, and its surface, in addition to being self-extinguishing, has an excellent non-slip seal. It offers maximum customization, with 15 different colors (3 for joints) and the possibility of using complementary colors for any resin accessories such as seating and chart tables.

An ecofriendly product

If we think about the life cycle of this “real resin,” and not fake teak, as the folks at Refit Style like to say, we might be surprised to find it in some respects a greenalternative to teak. Think of the trees that are used for teak, which are shipped from one company to another using various polluting means to pass between the various links in the industrial processing chain, from plant to boat. Then there are the many chemicals, such as acids and additives, that are required for cleaning and maintenance of teak and that often end up in the sea; resin, on the contrary, requires virtually no maintenance.
