Counter Tops

I am in the cabinet business and have recovered old laminate surfaces with new many times the trick is to sand the surface to remove the release coat on the lam 60 grit does this very well.after sanding clean the surface with acetone,then clean it again.Make sure all motors or anything that could cause a spark is OFF. Buy some 3m spray contact sold in Hardware stores,use the spray 99 not the 77 the 77 was developed for use as a tack board material.use old blinds or small dia. dowels to position laminate pull some out to get a bond then carefully remove the rest of them, roll the surface with a J roller or a rolling pin and then trim. Clean up any over spray with m.e.k. . Hope this helps you good luck
