Nyloboard

I was driving picking up new locks for my airstream compartments. I was getting them for free from a person who did not need them. On my way I went by a new factory in Covington Georgia that makes Nyloboard. When I got home I called the company and asked about their product. I asked if they had 3/4 inch sheets 4 x 8 sheets of this product and they said they did. They told me it was stronger then 3/4 inch plywood and water resistant. I asked them if I could use it for a subfloor and would it carry more weight then 3/4 plywood. I was told over the phone it was stronger and more durable then plywood. Nyloboard is going to send me a sample to look at. I am posting the link for you other people to check out. I have never used this product but it sounds pretty good. Nyloboard - Applications

Interesting. I wonder what level of off-gassing there is with this product.

Nyloboard cost

4' X 8' sheet 3/4" thick . I think she told me $139.00. She did say it is a true 3/4" thick.

The website says it weighs 40lbs/cu.ft. which translates into 80lbs for a 3/4X4'X8' sheet.

According to Bob Vila... the same sheet of plywood weighs about 75lbs.

Thanks Brian, this is great info. Karma coming your way. It's nice to see that it's made from recycled materials.

Very interesting. A lot of folks out there have an interest in flooring that is not going to fail after some inconvienient leaks. Very interested to hear of how this works. Stats look impressive!

I requested a sample from the company, if the product is anything like their customer service (sort of a apples to oranges comparison) it will be awesome. Kinberly said the sample is on it's way to me UPS.

Previously when we've looked at plastic replacement for plywood it has been strong and light, but not as stiff as plywood, and so it needs more supports under it than plywood, else it flexes underfoot. It will be interesting to see if this stuff performs better.

I checked the web site. It said nothing about a fire rating, flame spread, etc. Fire is usually the downside with plastic recycle products. FYI - better safe than bar-b-que!
