Q:Is this designed to be used with staple up radiant floor heating without odor or toxic emissions from the wax? It would be installed over the subfloor before nailing down wood strip flooring. Is it coated with paraffin wax?
by|Jan 30, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  It is a wax treated paper. It does not contain any asphalt materials, without odor emissions or toxic materials in the product. Radiant heat systems should be used max at temps at 80 degrees F or less during floating applications(per industry standard). Always follow the floor covering manufacturers specific substrate preparation guidelines.

            The product is thin and slippery. It did the job, but I wish it was thicker and more durable.

              Home Depot, thank you so much for this opportunity to rate your wax paper. It’s very papery and waxy. You did it. 10 points to Slitherin.
