Compact Board Underlay System  EWA22. Heavy duty polystyrene underlay, suitable for use with all Laminate and Engineered wood floors. This is an ideal underlay for all types of subfloors as it has numerous attributes; its light weight ensures it is easy to handle and it will help level out, slightly uneven floors. The product is dust and fibre free ensuring it is good for the environment and anti-allergenic. Due to the construction of the board it has a high weight resistance, this also gives it a 2.2 TOG rating which is ideal for insulating cold rooms. Compact board has a very good sound absorption rate to help lower the effects of reflective sound. When used on concrete floors we suggest that the joints are taped with our vapour barrier tape.

Can compact board underlay EWA 22 be used for Karndean vinyl click planks on a concrete base?
I see that it has a high weight resistance so it should support the 4.5mm planks.

Sorry but we would not suggest using this product under any Click Vinyl Flooring.
