Laminate sheets are produced at a standard size of 8 feet by 4 feet. However, some manufacturers offer other sizes based on its application. Since Sunmica laminates are one of the most popular choices, there is a wide range of laminates collections to choose from.
These are easy to find in the market, as compared to other varieties. As the name suggests, they come in various prints and colours — so use them on furniture, floors and in kitchens. An add-on advantage is that these also shield the surfaces beneath.
These are preferred for circuit boards at home, or storage and furniture at industries and hospitals. This is primarily due to their high strength, resistance to wear and tear, and fire-retardant properties.
The above three types of laminates are sheets and need a base as support. But compact laminates are self-supporting and do not need to be glued to wood or any surface. They usually vary from 3 mm to 30 mm in thickness. They are used as lab table tops or even dividers in public bathrooms.
You’ll be surprised to know that Sunmica or laminate flooring comes in a variety of colours — from whites, greys and browns to sometimes even reds, greens and blues. But what comes in a larger variety are the shades of popular colours like greys and browns. There’s ash, cherry, oakwood, graphite, sandstone, granite, walnut and multiple other shades that range from light to dark.
