Diamond Edge Laminate Countertop
Preform Laminate Preform laminate countertops offer nice clean lines in your countertop. The front edge through the backsplash are one continuous piece of laminate to avoid having direction changing seams. Our standard top is a no-drip (a.k.a. caprice) provides a top with a small lip at the front of the countertop before it rolls down. The backsplash is also integral as one piece. Any direction change in your countertop will require a seam however as the pieces are built from a standard uniform depth top.

Laminate countertops are designed for beauty and durability. Like any surfacing materials they can be damaged by abuse and carelessness. When used as recommended with proper use and care, the end result is years of satisfaction.
Before selecting the surface material, consider the type of use it will receive, as well as its texture, color, and reflective values. A rough-textured surface has different advantages, depending upon use, than a smooth-textured surface. For example, high gloss finish laminates are not recommended for use in heavy-duty applications such as countertops. Dark colors tend to enhance scratches, marring and fingerprints.
Scratch and Impact Protection Laminate surfacing material are resistant to scratches and impacts under normal use conditions.However, always use cutting boards, chopping blocks or other protective surfaces. - Do not chop, slice, pound, or hammer on any laminate surface. - Knives or other sharp utensils may slice or scratch the surface. - Heavy blows from a hammer or meat tenderizer may crack or gouge the surface. - Ceramics and abrasive objects can cause scratching and premature wear, do not slide these items across surface. - Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, sandpaper or Scotch-Brite scouring pads.
Hot Objects Cookware still hot from the stove, oven or microwave, as well as electric skillets, waffle irons, curling irons and hot rollers, should not be placed directly on laminate surfaces. Prolonged exposure to temperatures of 140°F (60°C) or higher may cause the laminate to separate from the core material.Use a trivet, insulated hot pad or other protective device beneath all hot cookware, heat generating appliances, or other heated objects.Do not place lighted cigarettes directly on laminate surfaces.
Ordinary Cleaning Laminate surfacing materials are very easy to clean. In most cases, you only need to use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cotton cloth and a mild liquid detergent or household cleaner. Rinse with clean water, using a clean, non-abrasive cotton cloth. Do not flood the laminate, especially near seams, since water can penetrate and cause the substrate to swell. Dry the surface with a soft, clean, non-abrasive cotton cloth.
Matte and Sparkle Finish Laminates -Especially hard to-clean areas may require special attention. Use a nylon bristled hand or vegetable brush, along with a mild liquid detergent-and-water solution or household cleaner. Clean the soiled area, using a rotating motion.

High Gloss Finish Laminates - If residual streaks and smears remain after normal cleaning, use a mild glass cleaner and then dry with a clean, non-abrasive cotton cloth.Avoid exterior glass cleaner.
Abrasives Abrasive pads, scouring powders or cleaners may permanently dull and scratch the laminate surface making it susceptible to staining.Ceramics, including unglazed materials and other abrasive objects, can cause scratching and premature wear, do not slide these items across surface.
Chemical Damage Never use cleaners containing acid, alkali, or sodium hypochlorite. These cleaners will mar, etch, corrode, and permanently discolor the laminate surface. Also, make sure that bottles, rags, and other materials contaminated with these cleaners never contact the laminate surface.
