Originally marketed and used for outdoor skateboard surfaces, this durable, American-made material has an appearance similar to soapstone.

Color options are black, brown,yellow, green and red. Installed price is about $60 a square foot and according to the manufacturer, a homeowner handy with woodworking tools can install it (March 2005).
