MoistureShield® Introduces DiamondDefense™ Coating, the Ultimate Composite Cap

MoistureShield, a division of Oldcastle APG, a CRH Company, has introduced the  DiamondDefense™ Coating, an all-polymer cap on its MoistureShield Vision line of capped composites. DiamondDefense represents an evolution in MoistureShield cap technology. This exclusive technology provides the strongest composite cap in the industry to resist damage from scratches, stains and fading. DiamondDefense technology brings peace of mind to customers who want the look of interior hardwoods with the strength that’s needed in outdoor environments. (

Vision features an advanced manufacturing method that creates a modern, variegated appearance with a diverse pallet of trend-forward color options. The distinctive contemporary designs strongly resemble the beauty of interior hardwoods to provide a seamless transition to the outdoor deck.  Every Vision board is also protected by the Solid Core Difference for unmatched strength and moisture resistance, to reduce maintenance and upkeep for hassle-free decking that lasts.

The deck boards are available in 12-, 16- and 20-foot lengths with fascia boards in 12-foot lengths.  The decking comes in non-grooved square shouldered boards and grooved profiles for hidden fasteners. Vision decking is fully protected by a lifetime structural warranty, as well as a limited lifetime fade and stain warranty.
