FastenMaster, a division of OMG Inc., has introduced its Deck Frame Coating, a water-based sealant that helps to extend the life of decks by creating a lasting moisture barrier.

The new coating is designed to be rolled or painted onto the top of deck joists, ledger boards, stair stringers, posts, beams, and other framing components, and serves to deter wood rot and decay. After application, it’s workable in 20 minutes, so it won’t slow down decking PROs during installation. Once dry, the coating creates a durable seal around deck fasteners. In addition, it is highly effective for use in corners and other hard-to-reach places where joist tapes have difficulty providing full coverage.

“When it comes to decking, PROs look to FastenMaster for state-of-the-art products that enhance jobsite productivity,” said John McMahon, Decking Business Unit director for FastenMaster. “This new Deck Frame Coating gets them working faster and with more productivity compared to joist tape, which is very expensive and labor intensive to install.”

FastenMaster Deck Frame Coating is available in 1-gallon (3.7 L) buckets, which covers up to 450 linear ft. (137.2 m) of 2x framing. The coating is water-based, does not contain any VOCs or solvents, and is non-flammable.
