Millboard Enhanced Grain Composite Decking
Fixing and Finishing Methods
Millboard uses their small headed stainless screws called Durafix. There’s no pre-drilling or countersinking needed. You can simply screw through the surface of the board and thanks to the flexible Lastane® surface the screw disappears below the surface leaving virtually no mark and creating a really clean finish.
To be used for Deckboards 4.5 x 60mm Durafix Stainless Steel Screws
Approx number of screws required is 22 per board
Touch Up Coating:
This is a coating that can be used to blend in any cut ends. There are seven different colours that will match with your deckboards.
We would advise to finish off your decking area with Millboards matching Fascia & Edging however depending on your project you can use this coating on any exposed ends. Please note any ends will turn yellow when exposed to UV light/Sunlight so we would advise coating all exposed ends.
The boards can be cut with standard saw blades, although Millboard recommend a carbon-tipped, multi-purposed chop saw. As the formed end of the moulded board should be squared up and trimmed off this can either be placed in a less visible area or touched up with the matching paint. Using the matching fascia and edging boards will add a more professional finish. Please note Millboard offcuts cannot be burnt and have to be sent to landfill sites.
What’s it made out of?
Millboard composite decking is made up with Polyurethane Resin, fibreglass strands & mineral composite with a Lastane® surface.
The Lastane® finish is highly resistant to scratches and food and drink stains, and everyday wear and tear. Sharp objects such as unprotected table or chair legs, spiked shoes or metal planter bases can leave marks if dragged across the surface, so take care when moving these items around.
All styles of Millboard achieve one of the highest anti-slip ratings, even in wet conditions.
All the boards are surface sealed in the factory to ensure they arrive in premium condition. In the first few weeks of use, rainwater will sit on the surface in globules, but don’t worry this is normal and will stop once the temporary mould surface release seal breaks down.
