Swim Platform Pads Installation Instructions
The only items you’ll need for your installation should be a sharp razor blade, masking tape, window cleaner and a clean cloth.
Thoroughly clean the area where SeaDek will be applied. We recommend using a cleaner that will not leave any residue. A glass cleaner used with a clean cloth or scotch-bright pad works well. Make sure the area is completely dry before applying the pad.
If there is any glue, grease, adhesive or other substances on the area that the pads are to be applied, mineral spirits followed by acetone may be used to remove them. Be sure to use a glass cleaner afterwards as suggested above. Again the platform surface must be completely dry before applying the pad.
If pads are being applied to a new boat right from the factory it is very important that all mold release is thoroughly removed from the boat surface. Be sure to check with the boat manufacturer before applying pads.
Arrange the pad to the exact location to be covered and verify proper fit and placement. Once you are sure the pad is the right size and are happy with the location turn the pad over so that the paper backing is facing up. With a sharp razor, carefully cut the paper backing right down the center being careful not to cut into the pad. From the center, peel up each side a little to make sure the backing is completely cut all the way through.
Turn the pad back over and reposition the pad exactly where you want it to be installed. Firmly secure one side of the pad to the platform using two-inch masking tape.
Now lift up the untapped side of the pad with one hand and loosen the paper backing with the other. This process is a little easier if you have someone to help you out. Slowly and carefully pull up the rest of the backing while applying the pad to the platform. Use your hand to apply pressure to the pad to assure a firm bond between the pad and the platform. Now remove the tape from the other side of the pad and repeat the application process just like you did on the first side. Take time to press the entire pad into place with your hands especially around the edges of the pad.
Swim Platform Pad Features
Comfort, durability and a finished look and feel are all characteristics of SeaDek's line of stock and custom swim platform traction pads. SeaDek is made from closed-cell EVA material that will not absorb water and is easily applied with our long lasting, easy to apply peel-and-stick adhesive making SeaDek superior to other traction alternatives on the market.
Each pad starts with 3mm foam on the bottom for comfort and shock absorption. A thermo embossed, 3mm layer is then added to the top for durability and superior non-skid performance in both wet and dry conditions. Next our marine grade 3M™ pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing is added to the pad. CNC machines then route a finished bevel along the outer edge of the pad. Finally a SeaDek, manufacturer or custom logo can be routed right into the pad. Custom text and graphics can be incorporated into the design as well.
