Vibra-Coustic SVD SLU (Self-Leveling) / TTU (Trowel)

Multi-layered composite decking underlayment systems specifically designed to attenuate airborne noise transfer between compartments, reduce impact induced sound and provide vibration dampening of structural components. International regulations and standards mandate the requirement to mitigate noise and vibration in occupied accommodation spaces. The system integrates a primer, viscoelastic membrane and a high density self-leveling deck underlayment which significantly reduce the airborne noise transfer and dampens the structural vibration by defusing the kinetic energy wave transfer that propagates the sound and attenuates the vibration to reduce noice transference.Specification Reference: U.S. Dept. of Defense MARAD Spec No. 59MA 6a Type I, Class 2 / U.S. Coast Guard Approval (IMO) 164.106/50/0


Dex-O-Tex Insul-Dex is a trowel-applied calcium aluminate cement deck underlayment system. Insul-Dex is light weight and provides fire resistance and insulating resistance to thermal transfer. It meets the requirements for the U.S Coast Guards International Maritime Organization A-60 fire protection standards. Insul-Dex underlayment can be applied at thicknesses ranging from 3/8 inch to 2inches. Dex-O-Tex Insul-Dex is used on a wide variety of vessels including U.S. Naval ships, passenger liners, tankers, freighters, ferry boats and casino ships. It is also used to insulate living quarters on offshore drilling rigs where it can be used for both deck leveling and as a fire rated deck.ADVANTAGES• Lightweight• A-60 Deck / IMO Tested• Installed aboard SOLAS vessels• Deck finishes, vinyl composition tile, etc.can be applied within 48 hours

Colorflake IMO

Dex-O-Tex Colorflake IMO is an epoxy resin composition deck covering which is applied to a thickness of 1/16 inch (1.59mm). Colorflake M provides a decorative, lightweight easily cleaned surface for crew quarters, mess decks,passageways, toilet spaces and galleys.Dex-O-Tex Colorflake IMO is fluid-applied to form a jointless surface offering substantial protection against corrosion of metal decking.Colorflake IMO is available in a wide range of attractive background colors into which are incorporated in decorative pigment chips sealedin a clear epoxy matrix. Colorflake IMO can be rapidly applied and can be easily installed by experienced deck covering craftsmen on underlayment or steel. A Dex-O-Tex Colorflake IMO application is quick, clean and neat.

VLW IMO Lightweight Epoxy Underlayment

Dex-O-Tex VLW IMO Lightweight Epoxy Underlayment is a IMO certified primary deck covering. It is a 100% solids epoxy resin base mixed with a very lightweight aggregate to form a trowel applied decking underlayment for general use under all deck covering materials. Due to the rapid cure of VLW IMO Lightweight Epoxy Underlayment, it can be installed with minimum downtime. It can be applied directly to clean metal or steel and steel coated with pre-construction primer (PCP) or epoxy primer, without the need for a separate bond coat, mechanical anchors or other devices welded to the surface. It offers every advantage for lightweight filler sloping/leveling compound for quick turnover maintenance and/or repair installations.

Elastaguard Membrane

Dex-O-Tex Elastaguard is a urethane modified polymeric epoxy membrane that prevents corrosion that is applied to a thickness of approximately 5/64" (80 mils). Elastaguard provides a durable membrane protection layer to properly prepared and primed metallic substrate to provide exception corrosion protection properties. In addition Elastaguard is resilient, sound dampening, lightweight and compatible with most deck covering materials and commercial flooring finishes.Dex-O-Tex Elastaguard is fluid applied to form a jointless surface providing an impermeable elastomeric membrane. This membrane layer protects against corrosion and isolates subsequent applications of underlayments, deck covering or floor finishes from movement. Elastaguard is rapid to apply and can be easily installed by experienced deck covering craftsmen. Dex-O-Tex Elastaguard is manufactured to meet the requirements of ANSI 118.10. 

Terrazzo M Quick-Step

Dex-O-Tex Terrazzo M Quik-Step is a one-step seamless deck covering comprised of decorative marble aggregates embedded in a clear, catalyst reacted epoxy resin binder. It is customarily applied to a thickness of 1/8 inch  to 1/4 inch in a single trowel step requiring no sealer or topcoat. A cove base can be incorporated to form a continuous joint-free surface. Dex-O-Tex Terrazzo M Quik-Step is designed for rapid application and can be easily installed by experienced deck covering craftsmen.Typical installation areas for Terrazzo M Quik-Step include showers, toilet spaces, galleys, laundries, and other wet spaces. Dex-O-Tex Terrazzo M Quik-Step is manufactured to meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Defense Specification MILPRF-24613,Type III. It is completely compliant with all environmental requirements, contains no hydrocarbon solvents and meets all known state volatile organic substance limitations. 

A-70 VLW (Very Light Weight) Latex Concrete

Dex-O-Tex A-70 VLW (Very Light Weight)Latex Concrete is a synthetic resin emulsionmastic decking that is trowel-applied to form aseamless surface for heavy duty areas and rollingloads. It is primarily designed for use betweenchannels of floors in cargo ammunition holds asa filler for leveling the deck surface for walkingand fork truck operations. It is 20% lighter thanstandard A-70 Latex Concrete. It is noncorrosiveto steel and aluminum, non-sparkingand fire retardant. A-70 VLW Latex Concretecan also be used as an underlayment wheneverthicker applications require a lightweightmaterial.

TM Clearsealer

Dex-O-Tex TM Clearsealer is a two component epoxy sealer designed for application to most polymeric surfaces to provide a durable and impervious finish. It is available in a high gloss and is available with a slip-resistant aggregate component. Dex-O-Tex Terrazzo M Clearsealer is not affected by moisture once it has reached a full cure and is resistant to a wide range of acids, alkalis and most common chemicals.A special feature of Dex-O-Tex Terrazzo M Clearsealer is its extremely low odor level and freedom from toxic effect on applicators or personnel in the area.

Posi-Tred M

Posi-Tred M is a skid resistant epoxy coating for use over Dex-O-Tex composite decking systems, as well as over concrete substrates, stairs, ramps, etc. PosiTred M is a two part epoxy resin that incorporates skid resistant aggregates resulting in a surface that is very skid resistant, even when wet. Posi-Tred M is available in a wide range of colors and skid resistant profiles ranging from very coarse to very fine. Selection of best profile to be used depends upon the degree of skid resistance desired, cleaning characteristics desired and the finished appearance.A special feature of Posi-Tred M is its extremely low odor level and freedom from toxic effect on applicators or personnel in the area during placement and cure. Posi-Tred M can be used for interior service. For exterior service, consult with Crossfield prior to use. It is available in a range of standard colors and custom colors. 

Quick-Set Underlayment

Dex-O-Tex Quik-Set is a lightweight underlayment screed used in thin gauge applications for leveling and fairing welds. It is a synthetic resin mastic which, when trowel applied to properly cleaned deck surfaces, will adhere without the use of mechanical fasteners. It has good troweling characteristics and is normally applied from feather-edge to 1/8 inch(3.175mm) thickness. Quik-Set is approved as a IMO primary deck covering material having low flame spread characteristics and does not produce excessive quantities of smoke and toxic products from combustion. It is moisture resistant, has high indentation resistance and is fast setting.
