Paint or sealer of any kind for formica countertops

puzzlefanDecember 31, 2010

The countertops (formica) have reached their usual stage for their age and are dull and scratched. I don't want to replace them for another two years. Is there a clear finish or epoxy finish that is food safe and will adhere to formica?

Don't waste your time...there's no sealer (Poly) that's totally food-safe.
Rust-oleum has a countertop paint, but ideally, take a mouse sander and scuff the surface first.

I'm not sure I would even bother with that...just suffer it out until new c-tops are bought!

I dunno, Faron. Just got an invite from Kathy Boyd at Art Fusion about a product called iCoat for counter tops - and something about floors too??? Here's the link to the invite and info.

Does anyone really put food directly on their countertops?
