developed CorrectDeck CX with Microban protection
in response to homeowner concerns that composite decking needed
to be improved in several areas, especially mold and mildew resistance,”
said Martin Grohman, president of Correct Building Products. “Microban
antimicrobial technology makes those improvements because
it inhibits the growth of mold and mildew that can cause unsightly
stains and spots.
truly fulfills the promise of low maintenance that composite deck
owners expect,” Grohman said. CorrectDeck’s
co-extrusion process engineers Microban protection
into each board. Its antimicrobial properties resist mold and mildew
by helping to prevent the colonization of mold and mildew that can
cause black spots. In addition, CorrectDeck CX
resists stains from grease spatter or food spills because wood fibers
are coated with plastic, reducing their exposure. Protection of
those exposed fibers and the addition of concentrated UV inhibitors
enable the planks to resist color fading.
composite deck materials are susceptible to fading because wood
fibers were exposed to the elements,” Grohman said. “but
because our decking protects fibers, darker colors won’t lose
their rich look and lighter colors won’t look black when wet.”
very enthusiastic about Microban antimicrobial product protection
and what it means for our customers,” Grohman said. “We’ve
always made a very strong, sag-resistant deck through our use of
polypropylene instead of polyethylene, and now with CorrectDeck
CX with Microban product protection, we’ve developed
a composite deck that really is low-maintenance for homeowners and
