laminate underlayment with radiant floor

I have a Hydronic Radiant floor system and will be installing a laminate floor. I am having troubles with identifiing an underlayment with a low r value to use. Any ideas, I live in so cal. and finding someone with radiant experiance is difficult.
thanks Hans

Each laminate manufacturer tends to have its very own specific installation instructions. Contact the manufacturer for installation over radiant heat and recommended underlayment. Use of wrong product and installation methods can result in a failed installation. A floating engineered wood floor with a premium locking system is often recommended because of the planks are locked together. Take a look at Tarkett's Longstrip & Artisan Plank, Anderson's Engineered Wood Flooring, Kahr's, and Mannington products. If retailers in your area are not knowledgeable about radiant heat and flooring installation, contact manufacturer direct.
