After I clean them thoroughly, I always use furniture (spray) polish and they look like new.
This also protects from stains, etc. (08/28/2010)

My counter tops already look like granite. They just have no shine. Is it safe to just add a few coats of polyurethane?

I would go to a shop that deals with laminate, get a small piece and paint on the polycrylic and see what the results are. (11/23/2009)

I don't think it will adhere to the top surface, but let us know! (11/24/2009)

A high shine shows all the imperfections, even from across the room. (11/26/2009)

I am going to change my countertops and was wondering if I could use Polycrylic on regular laminate. I would like to buy a laminate that looks like granite, but the laminate does not shine like it. I thought the polycrylic would add shine to them. Does anyone know?

Hello,
I am an interior designer and I know that they have glossy laminates that look like granite that you can choose from. Look into laminates by Formica, Wilsonart, or Pionite. I know that you can also request that a laminate that you order come with a gloss finish. I don't think these companies charge more than residential suppliers, but I deal with more commercial work. Hope this helped out a little. Buying a laminate with an already glossed finish will last longer than finishing it yourself.

Good luck! (11/16/2008)
