Leading building products innovator Huber Engineered Woods has expanded its line of innovative AdvanTech™ Subfloor Assembly products with the introduction of AdvanTech X-Factor.

AdvanTech X-Factor is a new class of premium subflooring with a fade-resistant, water-shedding surface on a high-performance engineered wood panel. With a built-in protective top layer, it takes the moisture resistance teams expect from an AdvanTech® panel to the next level and pairs well with AdvanTech™ subfloor adhesive for a Squeak-Free Guarantee™ [1]

Unlike common oriented strand board (OSB) and plywood panels that can show flaking, delamination or discoloration from exposure to daily jobsite stress, AdvanTech X-Factor protects the panel surface quality and appearance. The built-in, water-shedding top layer provides a distinctively smooth, even, premium subfloor surface that is marker friendly and easy to clean.
