From the trials, it can be seen that this plywood (FG1 Flooring Grade Plywood) performed satisfactorily over the variety of tests conducted and as such, presuming the samples submitted are representative of the standard material being supplied; the following applies.
When fixed in accordance with the relevant codes of practice and acclimatised to the in-service conditions of the final finished area, the FG1 plywood appears to be a suitable base to receive the ARDEX range of smoothing and levelling compounds designed for timber substrate applications.
The Ardex ranges of floorcovering adhesives also appear compatible and suitable for use on the FG1 plywood, with the adhesion results seen indicating performance of the board to be as we would have expected.

In simple terms the product (FG1 Flooring Grade Plywood) is very very good, it has passed all tests on my end so far.
Matt Bourne - Managing Director at Floor Skills Training Centre
We carried out qualitative adhesion tests that we carried out using one of your supplied samples of FG1 plywood with our Stopgap 700 Superflex floor smoothing underlayment, which is our standard recommendation for smoothing plywood subfloors.
Based on the results seen, the FG1 plywood is suitable to receive Stopgap 700 Superflex, and we cannot foresee any issues with applying our Stopgap 500 Micro floor finishing compound or any of our adhesives to the plywood.
