    During the 's a chemical means of maintaining dimensional stability using a warm solution of polyethylene glycol (PEG) became popular. Brought to the world's attention by the US Forest Products Laboratory in , the process is basically to soak the wood in water for a couple of days then submerge it in a heated solution of PEG and water. When installing a Maple hardwood floor it is essential to also install matching Maple Strips & Molding.

You will need to get on your hands and knees with a light so that your eyes are only a few inches away from the floor.

Volatility and stability to heat: PEGs are practically involatile. Prolonged heat-ing at °C causes weight losses which are ascribed to the escape of volatile.
