Black polysulphide is typically used to seal the grooves milled between overlay teak decking planks. This is available in either a one-part formula, or two-part - which for years was reputed by professionals to be the longest lasting.

Presently, I'm planning on reefing out the caulk on my teak decking and replacing with a newly developed caulk - 3M Marine Teak/Wood Seam Sealant. It's reported to be as durable as the two-part polysulphide, but much easier to work with, since no pre-mixing is required.
