About this deal

Have re-insulated my loft and also have re-floored it with full size green chipboard flooring (the waterproof stuff). To be fair it could look a bit meh and it's a pretty big area so maybe the odd mop every six months or so would be better. Using a sealant on your particleboard makes the board more durable, harder, and able to withstand the weather to a degree.

Had a client that wanted custom oversized acoustic absorbers with Guilford of Maine linear woven fabric stretched / wrapped across. Note: I do run about a 2” bead of silicone sealant at the front of the bowl to keep it from shifting from right to left. This was my hope, that the poly (or shellac) when applied wicks into or at least seal overlaps the edges of banding.

At the end of the process, you should have a more durable board that can be reused in your DIY projects.

Never thought of using both but seeing as varnish is pretty expensive it would be a shame for it to all get absorbed into the board. PVA is made of polyvinyl acetate and is safe to handle with bare hands, although working gloves are always recommended when working with wood and sealers. Aluminium sealer spirit based primers and sealers are used to prevent materials leaking into subsequent coverings. You can also apply a layer of paint or varnish, depending on what you want to do with the chipboard piece. Resene Particle Board Sealer is a unique product designed for use under clear alkyd and polyurethane varnishes.

It is like a course powder which you mix in with the paint and it does make a difference to the floor. you dont say wether you want to seal both sides or just the side you'll be walking on but you have a choice of sealers open to you- first i would you a shellac based sealer like zinnser bin which will help adhesion of any further layers then you could use alkali resisting primer, zinnser gardz or zinnser perma white interior- if you want to walk on it zinnser perma white will be best but you may find it polish's in high traffic areas in which case you may need to overcoat it with another coat every year or so. But if none is around I still seal the edges before assembly with anything handy and lay down a tiny thin fillet bead of polyurethane sealant around the three sides after assembly. Personally I wouldn't bother as the stains/scuffs would just be on the 'finish' so unless you're planning to empty, sweep and mop your loft with any regularity, what's the point?

So for long term moisture exposure it may be as simple as applying / rubbing in a wax at the seams 'after' edge banding. Reproduction in whole or in part in any form or medium without express written permission of DIYnot Limited is prohibited.However, since it’s not waterproof, it needs sealing to ensure it doesn’t swell because of moisture. Subsequently, apply desired finishes such as staining, varnishing, or sealing to enhance durability and aesthetics.
