still doing the job after 8 years !

With the P•u•R protection, the bottom side of the floor looks pretty much the same as it did 8 years ago!

These pictures show how the P•u•R solution looks above the wheels at the front and rear area of a Northeast trailer built in April 2006. The deterioration is minor: the hardwood is still fully protected and the glue lines of the laminated floor are not damaged at all!

These pictures show how the water-based protection looks above the wheels at the front and rear area of a Northeast trailer built in December 2006. The deterioration of the water-based undercoat is major.

90% of the protection is gone, leaving the hardwood and glue lines without protection. We can see that the glue lines are starting to deteriorate, reducing the mechanical properties of the hardwood laminated floor.

Conclusion

Based with what we see on these two trailers, we can conclude—without a doubt—that after 8 years, the P•u•R protective barrier did not deteriorate. It still protected the bottom of the floor. Considering its condition after 8 years, there is no reason to believe that the P•u•R solution will not do its job. It will protect the bottom of the floor for many more years to come.
