SynDeck IMO UVR SS2590-71 UV Resistant EpoxySynDeck began serving the marine vessel industry in 1987. The SynDeck line was developed specifically with the manufacture and repair of military, commercial and private vessels in mind.

In 1989, SynDeck underlayment and waterproof membrane were approved for use by the United States Navy. Since then, SynDeck primary deck coverings, coatings and underlayments have been specified as the standard for many military vessels. EPMAR’s research and development staff continues to leverage its established marine deck underlayment system expertise to develop new products and solutions that meet the evolving needs of maritime industries.
