VLW IMO Underlayment

USCG IMO Certificate Approval 164.106/47/0

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.

Typical Uses:

VLW Lightweight Underlayment can be used to level or slope a deck and provide a smooth even surface over metal, aluminum or steel for subsequent application of any deck covering products.

Approvals:

-IMO FTP Part 2 and Part 6 Primary Deck Covering
-U.S. Dept. of Defense... MARAD Spec. N. 59MA 6a Type I, Class 2
