High Pressure Laminate

Laminate remains the most common and most economical material for benchtop surfaces in New Zealand. Most people refer to High Pressure Laminate as Formica, which first appeared in the decorative benchtop market during the 1950’s. Many brands have subsequently emerged over the last 60 years providing a vast choice of colours, patterns and finishes.

Contour Surfaces offers you a choice of 8 brands which are backed by our 6 year extended warranty.
