Default Advantech flooring???

Anyone have a trailer with the advantech flooring? How does it hold up compared to the plywood flooring? After looking online for a bit, it looks like quite a few of the aluminum trailer manufacturers are using it. I recently saw it in some new mission and legend trailers.

Hard to imagine that it wouldn't hold up. I think it could work but I would be curious if oil leaks or other contaminants would have the possibility of dissolving the resins in the flake board. If you had a good 2-part epoxy to coat it when done you might have a pretty nice floor.

This is what I put on mine 4 years ago and it is holding up pretty good.

I have it in my ATC. Holds up great! Much harder than plywood and less affected by carbide. Moisture is a non issue. Had the trailer for about 3 seasons. I did put down rubber flooring to make it nicer to walk on when changing clothes before and after riding but the Advantec seemed to work great after the first two seasons.
