What Is Formica?
Formica is a brand of composite materials fabricated by the Formica Corporation. The material was originally created as a substitute for “mica” in electrical insulation, but is now used primarily for countertop surfacing. More specifically, it’s typically described as a decorative product that comprises several layers of kraft paper with melamine thermosetting resin and topped with a decorative layer that’s protected by melamine, then compressed and cured with heat. The result is an extremely hard, durable product that’s ideal for countertop surfaces.
