Unhappy Basement flooring

I have a problem with my basement flooring. Water has gotten to one section. It is a panel made up of lu an wood with styrofoam sandwich we in between. Anyone know where to get another panel? Hate how this program keeps changing the words.

Sorry, I don't know where to source the panels. Probably Lichstein parts, near the factory.

My thought is, why not use something else? Luan is the worst if water gets anywhere near it. Marine plywood? Plastic sheets?

Panel is insulated because the basement is heated. The panel is 1- 3/8 thick. Plain or marine plywood would be too heavy.
Lichstein has only interior parts like file and furniture.

basement flooring

My Islander had a leak due to water heater from previous owner and one time for me. Few years went by, the floor was spongy. So I unscrewed the plastic panels on the floor, took them out and found the 3/4" plywood wet and rotting. I pulled them out and under them was sheet metal that faced the ground, coated with undercoating. I got new plywood, coated it with marine urethene put the metal back on the frame, plywood back in, when to Home Depot, got the same kind of plastic sheets, gray, instead of blue, screwed plastic back in along with caulking. My basement is heated where the water tanks are, I don't know if the big storage bays are, I would have to look, I don't care away. you could make your own panels if your handy.

Thanks Sam,
Thought about that also. Would have liked to keep it the same.
I could just buy the lu an panel and some Styrofoam, glue it together and install it. Just time consuming. Mine was also coated with a rubberized coating underneath.
