How to install epoxy coating over plywood substrate?

    

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.
