In this regard, what causes delamination on RV?
Delamination is when the fiberglass or gelcoat outer layer of an RV starts to pull away from the substrate, usually luan or a light weight plywood. Delamination begins as small cracks and then starts to spread outward. These cracks can start as stress cracks, but are mostly accelerated by water intrusion.
Also Know, how do you fix a lifted veneer? To repair lifted veneer, first insert the end of a fingernail file, emery board or the tip of a paper clip into the crack and scrape out as much deteriorated glue as possible. Be careful not to raise the loose veneer too high.
Similarly, how do you fix water damage on plywood?
