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!

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.

Platon purchase January 17, 2015
Reviewer: Stephen Wayman from Vestal, NY United States  
Love the product and service, unfortunately I have almost a whole roll left as I only needed about 10 feet of it. Its too bad that I could not buy something in less than a whole roll.

Excellent product September 3, 2014
Reviewer: Jim McGinty from Hudson, MA United States  
The membrane laid down easily and was an excellent and cost effective foundation for our basement laminate flooring. It is dry and is keeping the moisture out. I would highly recommend this product.
