Problem: Current shipboard deck tile is not rugged and
requires a continuous effort to keep clean and polished. This effort represents a huge
daily drain on manpower and is a true sailor morale issue.
Solution: Stratica is a commercially available
decking material that is extremely tough and requires no waxing or buffing. Only daily
damp mopping is required. MTTC, Navy and CES, Inc., developed and proofed the installation
procedures that must be followed to ensure a quality product.

Fleet Impact: This
project has removed one of the most visible negative shipboard activities - waxing decks.
The decking can be designed to give special effects and added decorating touches. Fleet
feedback has been very positive.
U.S. Navy has issued
a fleet wide release for the use of Stratica on Surface Ships and Submarines. As of1/1/01,
over 400,000 sq ft. had been installed by the Navy, with more every day. Support up to the
Office of the SecNav.
