No Open Seams No Moisture No Mold!

Platon is a strong, double dimpled, 24 mil HDPE membrane. By using Platon over the concrete, an impermeable vapor barrier and air gap is created. This allows the concrete to breathe while keeping the floor dry. The finished floor is isolated from the cold concrete and becomes room temperature, not slab temperature. This keeps you warm and minimizes surface condensation and musty odors.

A beautiful floor may hide an ugly reality. Even though it may look good on the surface, the reality underneath may be entirely different. Concrete floors always contain moisture. Floor coverings laid on concrete without an adequate damp-proof barrier will be affected and damaged. The results are unpleasant odors, mold, mildew and an unhealthy internal environment. A moisture barrier that does not provide air flow may trap moisture and cause problems.
Platon Flooring Protector gives you a new freedom of choice in floor covering materials. Carpet, vinyl, laminate or hardwood can be installed over Platon and OSB or plywood subfloor. On fresh concrete you can install flooring as soon as you can walk on the slab. Platon can also be installed on floors with radiant heat. If your basement is unfinished, install Platon and plywood or OSB subfloor, and frame the walls right on top of the subfloor. If the walls are damp, cover them with Platon!

Good Customer Service September 19, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Valier, MT United States  
I recently ordered this sub floor.  Product arrived in good shape.  Some small articles had fallen out due to the shipper's mishandling of the item.  Spycor quickly resent replacement items.  

The subfloor has not been installed yet, but looks like a durable, well-made product.

Satisfied September 6, 2017
Reviewer: Jared Kerchner from Glen Rock, PA United States  
Super fast shipping. Was to my door literally the next day after ordering. I had trouble getting the flooring to lay flat on the floor. I would recommend rolling underlayment out before putting flooring on top. If not the material has a memory from being rolled up. Makes it difficult to tap and not have wrinkles if underlayment isnt perfectly flat.

Really nice product in my opinion. I put 5mm Mohawk laminate on top and have put a few heavy items on top. The underlayment doesnt compress and is much more supportive than you would think 24 mil PE should be. The floor was nice and warm so hoping this winter the basement will be super warm with the wood/coal stove going.

economical basement subfloor but not the easiest January 27, 2015
Reviewer: Ron from Milford, CT United States  
Lays down somewhat easy except for the constant memory curl from being rolled up in a box. Warmer the temps would I assume relax the plastic so that it lays flat. I had trouble taping seams together because of the curl. In the end, I had small uneven waves but when anchored down by the weight of 3/4 OSB T&G, it all seems to work out. The more expensive version of 2'x2' OSB T&G panels that have this typ of material bonded to the under side is definitely easier but more costly.
