    If you melt the resin you got big problems... vent it well make sure you have good clearance and seal the plywood. I like to use cloth to seal the plywood, encapsulate the wood and use matt for your structure.
    Here are some floors I am doing right now, there are 100's of ways to do this, I have just seen floors done like this last for decades. Resin alone will crack that why I like to use the cloth. I am assuming you are using a polyester resin as well, I have never used epoxy resins but have seen some good stuff done with epoxy, it is new tec vs old school with the polyester.

    Heres mine... wood, carpet, vinyl, diamond, fiber... the only issue I had was the sun reflecting off my breather an burning a line like a magnifying glass into the carpet. Covered the top of breather with a piece of vinyl material...fixed.
