Can it be applied to painted particle board in preparation for laminate flooring?

Asked by: Doris
It will work, but it will work better if the paint is stripped first.

The product itself is satisfactory and easy to apply, however I was told by a technical representative of Custom Building Products that SpeedFinish would adhere to a previous coat of Fixall, also made by CBP. This turned out not to be the case and I will have to sandblast both layers off before I can proceed. I would recommend the product with the warning to check the surface to which it will be applied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product When I pulled up the old ceramic floor some of the wood came with it. I needed a solution to level the floor and this product fit the bill. It cured in just about 30 minutes or so easily solving a problem. One thing though, you have to be fast in the application because it starts to cure in just a few minutes. Awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMOOTH & EASY APPLICATION, STAYS STUCK Used to fill large voids in wood floor after patching openings with particle board. Tried Durams Wood Puddy, but it was way too expensive per ounce after the water was added- the large 4-Lb container reduces to less that 1/3 of the volume of the can when water is applied. SPEEDFINISH had much less volume reduction when mixed. Begins to set in about 8 min., becomes walkable in about 15. Recommend using a drill mixing attachment to ensure consistency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I had previously bought another product that took 12 to 14 hours to cure. This stuff is ready in 15 min. Just like it says. Great for just leveling small areas with a small amount of height to level out. Work quickly because this stuff is no joke! The remainder of the product in a homer bucket was hot. Even warped the bucket a little. After 25 minutes I couldn't even get any out of the bucket! I wouldn't use this on big areas. But, it worked perfectly for what I needed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No other finishing compound measures up to this one! Easy to prepare compound has an intermediate set speed, not too fast, not too slow, just right. The finish isn't chalky or brittle, like other finishing compounds. The surface is easy to smooth or texture, whatever the job calls for. It takes and keeps a painted finish, giving an artistic presentation. We're currently using this in a historic house, where it is desirable to keep the floors to a specified thickness, and painting to faux marble finish. The end result is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to put down but believe the mix only what you can use in 10 minutes I bought this product to level a couple of small dips in my basement before prior to installing heating pad and tile in the bathroom. It mixed fairly easy and went on smooth. Don't need to work it too much at first application. You can wet the trowel and skim back over after 5 minutes or so to remove any ridges left by the trowel. Overall worked much better than the last patching/skimming product I used prior to installing vinyl planks on the rest of the basement floor. Wish I had found this prior to doing the vinyl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! I just finished leveling out some spots where the rapid set leveling compound didn't flow quite right for me. This stuff worked perfect. The directions are spot on and it is so easy to apply. As I got to the last little bit in the bucket it started to set; maybe a drop of dish soap would have helped that to flow a little longer. Otherwise I am very happy. One tip is to use a large drywall knife in place of a float or trowel.
