Known for its incredible durability Formica is available in a huge array of colours and finishes. The Formica is vacuum bonded onto an 18mm FSC certified birch ply core with a balancer sheet on the reverse to prevent any potential warping. The edges of each item are then hand finished by sanding smooth and applying two coats of premium quality hard wax oil.
The balancer on the reverse face of the sheet is white, however, we also offer the option of using Formica so both faces are the same colour. This is a popular choice with our 24mm worktop allowing offcuts from the sheet to be used as shelving.
Formica is a non-porous material meaning no sealing process is required and it is naturally bacteria and stain resistant.
Although we treat the exposed plywood edge of our Formica worktops with hard wax oil we only recommend using overmount sinks to ensure there is no risk of water ingress.
