Lauan is a generic term for an imported panel typically from Asia or South America. It is made from a variety of tropical woods, most common red maranti.

Common problems.
vinyl discoloration
core voids
dents easily
compresses under a concentrated load.

These are inherent to the construction and species of wood. This is why vinyl manufacturers do not support its use as an underlayment.

This product was developed for use as wall paneling. check s.e.c.

Halex Underlayment is a solid core, exterior grade, birch Underlayment developed for use as an underlayment.

Halex's HU-845-6MM is 5ply, 6MM, and caries a lifetime warranty for nearly every common underlayment problem.

Birch is almost 2X as hard and Impact resistent.

The product is processed in the U.S. over state of the art milling equipment and quality checked before it reaches the floor.
