Installing Formica Tops against

1) Get the area ready for plastic laminate

Use laminated plastic sheets that are 1 / 16 "thick and is expected to be used on a flat work area. Then you can put plastic laminate is 1 / 32 "thick in the vertical surface.
Wash the area where the laminate is go and get rid of paint before putting the plastic laminate. Their desks are usually made out of particle board high density. You can also choose regular particle board or plywood as well.

2) Cut plastic laminate

You can use a circular saw, jigsaw, backsaw or a knife to cut the plastic. The saw blade must have a fine teeth and some masking tape has to go where the cut should not chip and it is easier to use. Cut from the back of the plastic circular saw or saber saw. Make sure to make the cuts on the upstroke. If you cut the back of this will stop jumping. If you use a hand saw and then cut face with a low angle. Always make sure your plastic sheets are a little big, so you can crop later.

3) Plastic Application laminate

You can usually use cement to apply the laminate. You can also try epoxy adhesives, but cement is best. Use sandpaper to roughen the surface to be covered. You have to get rid of the spare bits with a brush or air. Be careful when you're putting the sheets. You must know that 50-75 percent of the union that occurs in the first drive together. So this means the pieces must be properly aligned before being hit. If you are putting the chips in a vertical surface, then you should put the leaves glued down without strips of wood or wax paper.

4) Completion

Once the laminate is in the right place you can get rid of each dowel rod at a time and put the pieces together. You will use a roller to put the amount correct pressure on the plastic. Roll the whole thing down very well so no air left inside her and joins in all points. If you do not have enough rolling for the project then you need to create a seam. Is required to connect the large parts together first. You can finish the outside edges of the bottom cleaning the router. Make sure there is nothing stuck on it that can scratch the plastic. Put the tape on the bottom to ensure this does not happen. Dispose of any cement extra solvent. Use nail polish remover if you have nothing else.
