Is there a different, environmentally friendly way to teak siding that maintains the beauty and practicality of this material that ennobles a boat but does not “harm” the planet?

At Milan Yachting Week – The digital boat show, there is. In fact, there are two solutions where beauty is reconciled with ecology.

Synteak and Marine Cork present them to you at their booth.

Let’s compare their two green products.

Synteak’s eco idea: part teak and part recycled PVC

Synteak has made the prodigious Composite Teak which is a brand new material composed of 60% real teak and 40% PVC. The practical result is that it has the beauty of natural teak and all the advantages of practicality, reduced maintenance and durability of 100% synthetic teak. Teak Composite by Sinteak combines the merits of the natural product, teak, with that of PVC (but recycled and therefore environmentally friendly). Unlike natural teak, it reduces accumulated heat in the sun (does not scorch bare feet!) and you can choose any color tone, not to mention the grip that makes it perfectly non-slip.

Marine Cork’s eco solution: when eco cork becomes like teak

The other route to a coating as beautiful as teak but environmentally friendly is offered by Marine Cork with an amazing product. Marine Cork transforms cork into a high-tech product that is as compact and smooth to the eye as a teak lath. And walking on it gives a “soft” feeling.

It is environmentally friendly because the cork is the bark of the tree that is reformed, and there is no need to cut down forests to obtain wood strips, as is the case with “real” teak.

In addition, it has outstanding characteristics, such as simply weighing less than a third of traditional or synthetic teak. To give you an example, a 40-square-meter area with Marine Cork weighs 100 kilograms, while with teak siding 300/350!

You can see for yourself in an effective video how, with Marine Cork, coffee or wine stains go away with a little water without being absorbed, as they do with teak siding.
