Laminate Countertops

With hundreds of materials to choose from, selecting the Formica Countertopsright surfaces for your kitchen or bathroom counters can be a daunting task. Each surfacing material has inherent properties that you should be aware of when beginning a kitchen or bathroom renovation. For example, some surfaces require annual maintenance or special cleaning products, while others may not stand-up well to stains or direct heat. In the same vein, some materials may be a stretch to your budget, while others won't break the bank.

Believe it or not, laminate is made from paper! Here’s the whole scoop:

First, sheets of kraft paper are saturated in melamine resin.
Then, the resin-soaked papers are pressed tightly together under extremely high heat.
Next, the decorative paper is placed on the very top and cured in an oven.
Lastly, the sheets of laminate are glued to particle board to create a hard surface that is durable, flexible and beautiful.
