The Cortex system applies the same concept to synthetic decking, but it's easier because the corrosion-resistant screws cut their own countersink hole when driven with a special square-drive bit that has a no-mar depth stop.

This is economically signiﬁcant because void-ﬁlling can be a labour intensive and expensive
Composite decking is made by combining byproducts of wood with resins and plastic. 5 Hold the tube of composite filler on a slight downward angle against the far edge of the crack. 7 Pull off the painter's tape and sand the filled area with medium-grit sandpaper parallel to the composite board to smooth the filler.
