Attaching Luan Plywood to Concrete or Subflooring

In the building trades, luan is a very lightweight plywood composed of multiple thin layers of luan, a tree native to Southeast Asia. These thin veneers are compressed into a solid, lightweight piece. Luan is easy to install, economical and is appropriate for use as an underlayment for a variety of flooring types, from carpet to resilient flooring. Resilient flooring is any hard surface floor, such as hardwood, tile or linoleum. Once luan is attached to a concrete subfloor, homeowners can install carpet or resilient flooring above it. Luan levels the floors and makes a sheer surface on which to adhere surface floors
