How can I refresh my Formica® Solid Surfacing countertop?

If scratches are stealing that just-installed shine from the finish, follow these simple steps to bring your countertops back to their original glory:

    1. Pour a mild abrasive liquid, such as Comet® Cleanser or Soft Scrub®, onto a soft damp sponge or damp cotton cloth.

    2. Rub the area you wish to repair in a circular motion using mild pressure. 

    3. Rinse the area thoroughly with water and completely dry the surface. 

    4. If the damage has not been repaired, repeat the three steps above.

    5. See your solid surfacing shine.

Why do darker colors require a higher level of care and maintenance?

Some colors of Formica® Solid Surfacing may require more frequent cleaning to maintain a uniform finish. Darker colors tend to require more attention than lighter colors. Over time, even with proper care, your countertop will acquire a patina, changing the appearance of the finish. You may restore the look of the original finish by following the maintenance guidelines, see Use and Care Guide.

What colors do you offer in acrylic and why two different mixtures?

There are two different types of Formica® Solid Surfacing.  Over 80% of our offering is 100% acrylic and made in the USA.  Formica® acrylic solid surface has great durability and seaming capabilities.  A small percentage of our offering has an acrylic base with polyester particulates.  This mix of materials allows us to offer more unique designs that cannot be made with 100% acrylic.  For a list of these items, please visit our technical documents. 

What is the difference between acrylic & polyester blend products?

Polyester Blend allows for deeper colors to be visible through a sheet. Acrylic allows for easier and more variety in fabrication techniques. Other than those two main differences the types of solid surfaces do not vary much.
