Polyurethane Deck Coating
Waterproof Deck Coating
Polyurethane Deck Coating is designed to be 10 times stronger than a traditional deck coating. It delivers a hard waterproof surface to keep your property in pristine condition by providing a durable protective layer. Protect your surfaces with Liquid Rubber Polyurethane Deck Coating and preserve your property for years to come.
Waterproof deck coatings offer better protection than regular paints and traffic coatings.
Products that prove themselves
Polyurethane Deck Coating provides a durable protective layer to deck and dock surfaces. Here are other common uses for Polyurethane Deck Coating.
- Decks and Docks
- Plywood Surfaces
- Indoor/Outdoor Floors
- And More
Apply minimum final thickness of 1 gallon per 50 sq ft (4.6 sq m). It should require around 3-4 heavy coats. High traffic areas and porous substrates require 1 gallon per 30 sq ft (2.8 sq m).

Prep And Clean The Surface
Make sure your surface is clean, dry, and free of dirt, silicone, loose paint, rust, oil, grease, coal tar, or other contaminants. Apply using a 3/8 (10mm) roller, brush or paint sprayer.
Concrete: Should be etched, power washed and fully dried. Wood: Mildew and organic growth must be removed using Deck and Patio Cleaner. Secure raised nail heads, deck screws and loose boards. Pre-fill imperfections such as screw holes, knots and splits in the wood with a high-quality wood filler. Replace damaged and rotting boards and remove loose splinters. For fiberglass or vinyl: Scuff the surface to remove all shine, clean with a mild soap and water, allow to dry completely and wipe with a white rag that has been dampened with acetone to condition the surface. Cracks, joints, voids, etc: (1/8” or larger) should be pre-filled with a suitable patching material such as a high-quality wood filler, concrete patch material or Liquid Rubber caulking. Installing Liquid Rubber Caulking without reinforcing with Geo-Textile has a more seamless look but comes with a risk of cracking at the joint, crack, corner, etc. over extended periods of time and you should be prepared to touch up these areas in the future if necessary.
Tape-off, block off or otherwise mask areas that are not to receive coating. Remove masking while coating is still wet.
Bridge seams, flashing, cracks, joints, around penetrations, etc. using Geo-Textile applied via the 3-course method (Multi-Purpose Primer – Geo-Textile – Multi-Purpose Primer). Apply a 6” wide coat of Multi-Purpose Primer across the seam and while still wet, embed the Geo-Textile. Smooth out wrinkles and apply a second coat of Multi-Purpose Primer to fully saturate and encapsulate the Geo-Textile. Allow the primer to dry 1-2 hours before coating. As an alternative method: You can caulk the joints with Liquid Rubber Sealant & Adhesive instead of reinforcing with Geo-Textile, however there is greater risk of cracking at the joint without Geo-Textile.
Note: Geo-Textile is a structural element to help prevent cracking and will remain somewhat visible.
Using a 3/8’’ (10mm) microfiber roller, apply Multi-Purpose Primer to the entire surface. For edges, corners and between wood boards, apply using a nylon/ polyester brush. Allow the primer to dry until dry to the touch (approx.1-2 hours).
Apply Polyurethane Deck Coating or Cool Foot Deck Coating in multiple coats, allowing approximately 4-6 hours drying time between coats. Be sure to seal around posts. High humidity will extend curing times. You can re-coat when the material is dry to the touch with nothing wet underneath and is uniform in color.
Avoid hot, direct, intense sun when applying. You should also avoid contact with solvents and solvent based cleaners, adhesives and paints. Do not allow the product to freeze or apply in wet conditions.

Inspect and Protect
Inspect for pinholes, blisters, voids, thin spots or other defects. Repair as necessary. Allow 72 hours after last coat for light foot traffic. Allow 5-7 days after last coat before placing furniture on the coating.
Remove tape while coating is wet and close container to secure leftover product. If spillage occurs, soak up as much material as possible with rags. Clean immediately with soap and water. If spill is dried, scrape off as much as possible with a razor or scraper. Use mineral spirits to weaken product and an appropriate tool such as a wire brush or grinder to mechanically remove. If splashed on the skin immediately wash thoroughly with fresh water. If the product has dried on the skin massage the area with medical grade mineral oil, baby oil or edible oil, then wash with soap and water. If irritation persists seek medical attention.

Hey Peter, It's great to hear that you have found so many ways to use our product. If you have any other projects around the house, be sure to check out our full product line and projects section of the website.
Easy to apply, glad I can wash w/ water and use brush again & saddle brown looks really good. I have used both smooth and textured. Very glad I used Liquid Rubber instead of paint. Now - time will tell but I feel it will last long time.
Liquid rubber paint was easy to apply and really made a a great solution to my substructure problem on board my boat
That's Awesome! Our Polyurethane Deck Coating has been very successful on boat decks.
Long time user of this product in a heavy traffic area. It is durable and easy to clean.
