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!

5 of 5 dimple mat moisture barrier December 20, 2019
Reviewer: allen from Sunderland, MD United States  
Good product and easy to install. Has enough strength to maintain the air gap yet flexible to make up small imperfections in the concrete floor. I put down 23/32 t&g osb over it before the laminate to help keep the floor warmer. Very cost effective protection for your finished floors.

5 of 5 Better than expected June 25, 2019
Reviewer: Steven from Highland IL, IL United States  
I ordered 1 roll to try on a small part of my basement to test it. Floor went down really easy. After it was down for a week I had a drain clogged and water leak in the basement. The water made it to the new floor, I was sick to my stomach.  We pulled the plywood up to check it and no water made to to the plywood. I fixed the drain and bought enough to finish the rest of the basement. Will recommend platon subfloor to everyone wanting to add living area to there basement. That dosen't want a cold wet floor.

5 of 5 Great product and price January 24, 2019
Reviewer: Tom Burrows from Woodbury, MN United States  
Arrived within a week or so of ordering.  Good quality packaging, support and product.

Worked great for replacing my old interior drain tile system in a crawl space.  Saved a big $ vs. local construction supply stores.

5 of 5 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.
