Formica is fabricated by laying up sheets of resin-impregnated kraft paper together with a resin-impregnated décor paper for the surface. These sheets are then pressed together under high heat and pressure whereby the resins bond the construction together into a homogenous decorative laminate.

Advantages and Features

Formica countertops complement virtually any kitchen decor with over 250 colours. It's easy to find the perfect laminate to match your lifestyle and taste.

Disadvantages

It is not as durable as natural stones and is susceptible to scratches from sharp knives and other items on the counter so don’t use your countertop as a cutting board. Abrasive cleaning methods may cause damage and hot objects could leave a burn mark. Formica countertops can be damaged by exposing them to excessive water, especially where there are seams.

Maintenance

Formica countertops keep its beauty without a lot of maintenance. It can be easily cleaned by using a soft damp cloth and a mild soap or detergent solution. Some spills might permanently stain laminate countertops, so you should always be quick to wipe spills off the surface. To remove stubborn stains make a paste on top of the stain using some baking soda and water and then wipe it off gently with an absorbent cloth. Don't use abrasive cleansers and steel wool, and avoid using scraping and scrubbing motions, because doing so can damage the laminate countertop.

To preserve the look and finish of your laminate countertop, hot objects should never be placed directly on the surface.

By following these guidelines, a Formica countertop will provide years of satisfaction with very little discoloration, fading or marring of the surface.  They are a great choice and value for today’s homeowner and the perfect product for low budget kitchens.
