WHEN CHOOSING LAMINATE
Formica and Wilsonart each have multiple finishes that offer various textures and sheens.
Formica = Etchings – 46, Radiance – RD, Scovato – 34
Wilsonart = High Definition -35, - 45, & - 55, Antique – 22, Quarry – 52
Suede or Matte Finish: is a standard smooth finish. Great for kitchens or baths, it is easy to clean and will provide years of durability and satisfaction.
Gloss Finish: is appropriate for bathroom vanities ONLY. In more active areas such as kitchens, it is NOT recommended. (Scratching, fingerprints and limitations of the substrate are highly visible).
COLOR AND PATTERN SELECTION
Granite or Speckled Patterns: tend to mask wear. They prove to be the best choice for long lasting satisfaction and wear ability.
Solid Colors: tend to show more wear. Although dark solids are dramatic and add contrast, they always show scratches and wear immediately and are not recommended for kitchen counter top surfaces.

Plastic Laminates provide durable surfaces for today’s kitchens and baths. However, these surfaces are limited to minor repairs. Assist in your customer’s selection of laminate and help them choose colors and patterns that do not promote the visibility of the laminates limitations.
Note: Counter Pro may require a signed waiver form for laminate selections that are not appropriate for kitchen counter top applications. (See Waiver for and listing).
