How to install epoxy coating over plywood substrate?

nbspHow to install epoxy coating over plywood substrate | Duraamen Engineered Products Inc

Quiet often we are asked can epoxy coatings be applied over plywood substrates? Certainly! There are two approaches to this process. One process is to install a self-leveling concrete over plywood followed by an epoxy system. The second approach is to install a flexible epoxy coating over plywood followed by a typical self-leveling epoxy mortar.

When we recently received a call from a home owner in Hoboken, NJ asking us how epoxy coating can be installed over wood, we recommended the following process –
a. The wood floor needs to be sanded with a 40/60 grit power floor sander thoroughly so that the gloss is completely removed.
b. Any loose planks that are loose need to be fixed.
c. Lay down a diamond metal lath and pour at least 1/2″ self leveling concrete, Param 4500.
d. Apply self leveling epoxy system (Perdure SLE) over Param 5500.

This project in Hoboken, NJ was successfully executed by a contractor from Englewood, NJ. It took almost 6 – 7 days to complete the project…an area of 1200 square feet.
