Most countertops are made of high pressure plastic
laminate, commonly referred to as Formica. First a very thin wood
back is covered with a paper medium that has the printed pattern
on it. It is then covered with a thin piece of clear plastic and
heat pressed together. These laminates come in large sheets and
are applied to a wooden substrate, making a post- formed countertop.
Once cured, each molecule of our countertop coating shares an area
with the molecules around it. This is called “Crosslinking”
and it produces one of the most durable finishes available. As you
can see in the illustration below, the molecules are arranged in
a specific pattern, and will not allow any penetration of foreign
matter into our coating allowing it to expand and contract with
the plastic laminate underneath it. The chemicals in our coatings
actually melt the plastic laminate or “Crosslink” the
This unique aspect of our coating makes our refinished surfaces
very resistant to wear and tear, and they test a full 40% more durable
that the coatings used by most other refinishers in the country.
We apply six different coating of our product in three separate
applications. The first coat adheres exclusively to the plastic
laminate. The second, third and fourth coatings adhere to the plastic
laminate and to each other. The fifth and sixth coats adhere directly
to the coating itself. The end result is our finish, which is second
to none. We can refinish your kitchen and bathroom countertops (Ceramic

All items that are sitting on the countertop, on the floor,
or in the kitchen sink should be removed and placed in another
room before we arrive. This prevents any damage or contamination
of your belongings.
Children and pets should
not be present during the refinishing process. The odor and
particulates of our coatings tend to hover and settle above
or on the floor, which is the area that the little ones will
breathe. We recommend avoiding the area to be refinished for
at 4 hours after the job is completed and we will need your
permission to leave a window open to air out the house.
Use and Care
The countertop should not be used for
at least 48 hours after being refinished. All items such as toaster
ovens and microwaves should be left off the countertop at this time.
It is also recommended that a cutting board is used each time food
is cut on the countertop.
The countertop should be cleaned with
a non-abrasive cleaner, such as “Soft Scrub” or a weak
solution of bleach water. A soft sponge should be used and no scratchy
scrub pads, such as the combination sponge and green cleaning pad.
If any staining occurs, simply apply “Soft Scrub” or
weak solution of bleach water directly to the stain, letting it
soak for 5-10 minutes before cleaning.
