Frequently Asked Questions

Armadillo Decking

Armadillo Decking is made of recycled plastic and wood fibers, and is a fully-wrapped deck board with a polyethylene coating for fade resistance and to prevent stains.
Armadillo Decking is not scratch resistant. However, Armadillo deck boards are protected with a polyethylene cap stock to help protect the finish. We recommend using felt furniture protectors under the legs of any patio furniture placed on the decking.
Armadillo Decking's polyethylene coating will slow the effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays, however, no material is 100% fade proof when subject to years of exposure to UV rays.
Any surface can be slippery when wet. Armadillo Decking's polyethylene coating can be slippery when wet, just like wood, so caution is advised.
Small door mats can be used, however, we recommend periodically moving the rug to allow the deck boards to dry. The use of large rugs is not recommended.
No, this is not recommended.
Armadillo Decking has a class C Fire Rating.
Apply a citrus-based clean product (such as Zep, Goof Off, Goo Gone, etc.) to the affected area. Use a soft sponge or rag to gently remove the buildup. Be sure to thoroughly rinse off the decking surface.

Armadillo Board End Sealer

Sealer helps prevent moisture absorption. We recommend that all board ends, including ripped/exposed Armadillo board cores, be sealed using Armadillo End Board Sealer.
Armadillo End Board Sealer is an oil based sealer.
Each can of Armadillo End Board Sealer covers approximately 200 board ends.
We recommend wearing plastic gloves while applying the End Board Sealer. If residue sealer is on the skin, wipe off while still wet. If the sealer has dried, one of these methods may help to remove the dried sealer from the skin.

Acetone: Soak the corner of a paper towel with pure acetone and gently rub the dried sealer areas on your skin.

Hair Dryer: On a low setting wave the affected areas with a hair dryer. Once the sealer is warmed up, try washing it off with warm soap and water.

Abrasive: Gently rub with a mild abrasive such as; pumice stone, kitchen sponge, fine-grit sandpaper.

No, make sure the boards are dry before applying Armadillo End Board Sealer.
Yes. Our recommendation is to lightly sand the sealed area then apply a bonding primer. Once dry, you can use any type of outdoor paint. We will not warrant the weather of any paint applied to board ends.
