Sheet Material Installation Instructions

The only items you’ll need for your installation should be a sharp razor blade, masking tape, window cleaner and a clean cloth.

Thoroughly clean the area where SeaDek will be applied. We recommend using a cleaner that will not leave any residue. A glass cleaner used with a clean cloth or scotch-bright pad works well. Make sure the area is completely dry before applying the pad.

If there is any glue, grease, adhesive or other substances on the area that the pads are to be applied, mineral spirits followed by acetone may be used to remove them. Be sure to use a glass cleaner afterwards as suggested above. Again the platform surface must be completely dry before applying the pad.

If pads are being applied to a new boat right from the factory it is very important that all mold release is thoroughly removed from the boat surface. Be sure to check with the boat manufacturer before applying pads. Arrange the pad to the exact location to be covered and verify proper fit and placement. Once you are sure the pad is the right size and are happy with the location turn the pad over so that the paper backing is facing up. With a sharp razor, carefully cut the paper backing right down the center being careful not to cut into the pad. From the center, peel up each side a little to make sure the backing is completely cut all the way through.

Turn the pad back over and re position the pad exactly where you want it to be installed. Firmly secure one side of the pad to the platform using two-inch masking tape. 

Now lift up the untapped side of the pad with one hand and loosen the paper backing with the other. This process is a little easier if you have someone to help you out. Slowly and carefully pull up the rest of the backing while applying the pad to the platform. Use your hand to apply pressure to the pad to assure a firm bond between the pad and the platform. Now remove the tape from the other side of the pad and repeat the application process just like you did on the first side. Take time to press the entire pad into place with your hands especially around the edges of the pad.

Dual Density Helm Pad Installation

You will need:
Cleaner
Rag
Template
3M Primer

Instructions:
1. Place the provided template in the desired location for the helm pad.
2. Place the helm station pad on top of the template for a final fit verification. Tape down the template’s protruding corners.
3. Remove the pad from the deck. Using one (1) of the primer ampules for the top three (3) cut-outs and one (1) for the bottom three (3) cut-outs, apply the primer in each of the six (6) cut-outs.  Allow the primer to fully dry, approximately five (5) minutes.
4. Place a white Velcro® tab into the center of each of the template’s cut-outs. Apply firm and even pressure on each pad for a full minute once applied. 
5. Remove the template from the deck.
6. Place the helm station pad in its proper location and remove any remaining masking tape.

**Because the helm pad is not permanently secured to the boat, it should be removed and placed in a secure location during travel and storage.
