Decorative laminate aka formica

High Pressure Decorative Laminate is sometimes still called Formica - this was its original brand name. Laminate has come a long way since then - it looks great, with a huge choice of colours, patterns, qualities and surface textures. It’s also hardwearing, hygienic and waterproof.

Modern laminate is now much thinner so it can form or bend around your bench to give it rounded, smoother edges.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A LAMINATE

Top-quality laminates are tough and resist wear well for many years. The cheaper laminates show signs of wear quicker and won’t last you as long.

Wilsonart Laminates

Wilsonart sets the standard in high-pressure laminate and is our recommended brand.

With more than 100 colours and four surface finishes to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the combination that’s right for you.

More than this, Wilsonart laminate’s superior strength and chemical resistance will mean your benchtop stays looking great longer.

Wilsonart laminates are also designed to be flexible, with superior post-forming ability so the front edges of your benchtops will be seam-free.

Benchtop Profiles

Laminate benchtops can be curved and formed to provide exciting shapes, with a variety of edge profiles, from the classic timber bullnose to the Square Edge, or the contemporary tight radius of the Flat Freeform.

The most popular profile these days is Flat Freeform, and in recognition of the demand for this look, Benchtops Direct have specialised machinery with the capability to produce this popular tight radius finish with a selection of laminates.
