My kitchen guy rang me the other day and said his benchtop supplier is no longer supplying acrylic edge laminex as they have issues with it. He said he'd try and see if anyone else had it and/or get to the bottom of why they had stopped suppling it. I was just wondering however, if anyone on here had had issues with there edging or could shed some light on what problems may occur with it.

I've just installed two kitchens with benchtops that have acrylic edging. No mention of issues from my suppliers and the benchtops looked great.
Nothing mentioned by laminex themselves either.
I'd be interested to know exactly what the issue is as I can't think what it could or would possibly be.

It will be my first call this morning so if I can find out, I'll let you know. I can't think of any either.

So the manufacturer has had trouble with the edge tape fracturing when it goes on and he's worried that even if it goes on well, with a bit of wear and tear or just deterioration over time, it might fracture and let water in. He's willing to do it but won't provide a guarantee. So UFO had any trouble with it down the track it wouldn't be fixed.

Well the acrylic edging isn't a laminex product I don't think. They supply the laminex but the edge type has to be guaranteed by the manufacturer to be covered. As he said, he'll still make the product, but if he won't guarantee it becaus he's that sure the product will fail, doesn't that make you lose faith in it a little bit?

We have a physical termite barrier in our brick courses, and we were told there was nothing we had to or couldn't do (unlike the chemical barriers). I will check it out though.

It's just an example, the actual dimensions of the timber is 350 x 170 x 5 mm. Thanks for the help, I couldn't figure out how to determine the screw sizes.
