Inside Fiberon: PermaTech Surface Innovation

We're back with our "Inside Fiberon" series to offer a unique look at Fiberon composite decking products. This week, we're highlighting Fiberon's PermaTech surface innovation. Read below as Fiberon product specialist Kaylynn Poplawski discusses how PermaTech offers exceptional stain, fade and mold resistance.

Fiberon Horizon composite decking with PermaTech Innovation is a highly engineered, wood polymer composite decking product. Manufactured using the unique Fiberon hardwood/polyethylene substructure, Horizon is made using a co-extrusion process that efficiently blends the ingredients for a solid, dense core that fusion bonds to a proprietary, patent-pending durable layer that we call PermaTech Innovation. The PermaTech surface is formulated for bond strength. For a deck surface, these properties add toughness, tensile strength, relative impact and weather ability and provide stain, fade and scratch resistance. PermaTech provides many of the durability features found in items such as golf ball covers.




In the Pacific Northwest, we have "rain forest" conditions 8 months out of the year. One of the biggest benefits of having a PermaTech surface is the resistance to staining caused by mold, mildew and green algae that grow during the rainy season.

PermaTech also allows for low maintenance. Cleaning the Fiberon deck surface usually only requires mild soap and water, but your deck can also be pressure washed with an over-the-counter deck wash, like De-Solve-It.

Another benefit of PermaTech is the resistance to staining and color fading. Fiberon Horizon with PermaTech is backed by an industry first 25-year performance and stain &fade warranty - not that you'll need it. It’s engineered to provide a scratch resistant, stain resistant, superior finish that will look beautiful and last for years to come.
