How Postformed Laminate Countertops Are Made

Posted on 26 March 2014 by cradmin

We ran across this video put out by VT Industries, a large supplier of postformed laminate countertops, that shows the process they use for making postformed tops. While the video is a bit promotional, focusing on the things that seem to set this company apart from others, there is some good content here.

The video shows hows the subtops are made, some interesting edging options, glue-up of the laminate to the subtop, heating and forming the edges, creating cove-type backsplashes and more. If you are curious about the process, or just this large fabricator’s process, this video is worth a watch.

One thing that seemed of particular interest was how the company focused on the “green” aspects of its countertops – from the (pre-consumer) recycled particle board substrate to the no-formaldehyde-added adhesive used – a definite sign of the times.

If you have a video you think we should share, of know of one, please send us a link at [email protected] and we’ll take a look.

schultz SlotformerSchultz Forming Products manufactures a Slotformer made to postform high pressure laminate simply and effectively. The equipment is available in both 6- and 12-ft. models. The 12-ft. model has two separate working 6-ft. sections that can be used separately for forming smaller components or in conjunction for forming longer components such as countertops. This changeover to utilize the entire length of the machine is done by simply activating a switch on the control panel. The machines feature efficient dual quartz heaters for bringing the laminate up to the proper temperature quickly.
