would that be just like pegboard?? If so when I used pegboard and had a heated surface on it... it let off a funky smell. Kinda like a sharp pungent smell. After a couple of weeks it went away, it just bothered me at first.... i guess that doesnt really answer your question though =)
:I need an answer on something. I might be getting cages made from pressbord (partical bord with laminate), can it be sealed with Envirotex epoxy? Oil-based poly? or would the laminate be sufficent (for ball pythons) if I siliconed a piece of glass to the bottom?
