A:  Thank you very much for your interest in Eco Cork Foam. ECF is approved for use on laminate, hardwood and LVP flooring. ECF is not approved for use with peel and stick vinyl tiles as it has not been formally tested with any adhesives or glues, so there is a possibilty that the integrity of the product could be affected. If you have additional questions, contact our customer service team at 855-810-8922. Good luck with your project!

      Q:I have a 6’ roll of sheet vinyl i plan to install as a floating floor on top of 3/4” plywood subfloor. If i add the cork, i would glue it to the subfloor and lay the sheet vinyl on top. I am also looking to add some type of underlayment between the closed cell Bedrug and the plywood subfloor to quiet the squeeks. Maybe i should use quiet walk for the latter?

      A:  Thank you for your interest in Eco Cork Foam. ECF was created to work with Wood, laminate, and LVP flooring. It works great with attached pad and actually enhances the acoustical performance. As installation parameters change regularly, we always recommend that the flooring manufacturer's installation guidelines are followed. The installation instructions will stipulate the type of underlayment approved for their flooring, in terms of composition, thickness, and order of installation. This is the best way to ensure you do not void your warranty. If you have additional questions, contact our customer service team at 855-810-8922. Good luck with your project.

          Q:Is there an LVP thickness requirement for this underlayment to be used? I have 4.5mm LVP and I noticed it's not recommended for LVP lower than 5mm but does that 0.5mm difference really impact the click and lock system?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Thank you for your interest in Eco Cork Foam. ECF is approved for LVP that is 5mm or greater in thickness. We recommend 5 mm or greater in thickness due to the flexibility and pliability of LVP flooring below this thickness. ECF has some cushion, which could affect the integrity of the tongue and groove connections on LVP less than 5 mm thick. ECF works great with attached pad and actually enhances the performance. As installation parameters change regularly, we always recommend that the flooring manufacturers installation guidelines are followed. The flooring manufacturers installation instructions will stipulate the type of underlayment's approved for their specific flooring, in terms of composition, thickness, and order of installation. I'd you have additional questions, please feel free to contact our customer service team at 855-810-8922. Good luck with your project!

                  Q:Can ECF be used with LVP 4.5mm thick flooring? I read in other comments that it is recommended for use with 5mm or greater LVP but does the .5mm difference really impact the integrity of the click/lock system when paired with ECF?

                    Q:Can this be painted? My friend covered her kitchen in it and painted it blue. She likes it says it's soft. I know this would void the warranty, that is it painful and would work for flooring

                    A:  Thank you for your interest in Eco Cork Foam. ECF was created for use as an underlayment under for wood, laminate and LVP flooring. Consumers share their interesting uses for ECF and this has been done before with great success. As ECF is 3.2 mm (1/8"), it has some cushion.
