Laminate is made by saturating sheets of decorative and core paper with resins, then under high heat and pressure, fusing the layers into a single sheet. Laminate sheets are then bonded, using special adhesives to plywood, fiberboard or particle board which gives the final product its strength and substance.
All laminates are available in textured finishes which enhance significantly their abrasion resistance. In addition High Pressure Decorative Laminate will resist heat damage to temperatures up to 375ºF and some finishes have a scratch resistance guard.
Plastic laminates are incredibly stain resistant, far more so than other countertop materials such as natural granite. Most household stains can be easily removed by soap and water, and stubborn stains such as solvent based permanent marker can be removed using varsol or acetone.
All plastic laminates are available in 5’x12’ sheet size which enables most kitchen layouts to be manufactured without any mitre joints or seams.
Uniform stocks approximately 70 colours from Formica, Arborite and Wilsonart in
a bullnose edge ranging in Kitchen, Vanities and Bar top sizes.
Decorative laminate countertops will provide years of enjoyment and durability at a portion of the cost of other countertop materials.
