Tips For Bending Laminate Around Radius Edges

Posted on 09 November 2012 by cradmin

Here is an insightful video by fixmycabinet.com that offers a couple of tips when bending laminate around the radius edge of a countertop. We’d love to hear if others use this same method or if they have any other tips to offer.

    We prefer using a heat gun. It keeps the laminate thick and allows a smaller radius. With post-forming grade laminate you can do a radius of 1/2″.

  3. Joseph Corlett Says:

    On pieces where appearance doesn’t make a difference (solid colors as opposed to wood grains), make the “grain” on the back of the plastic laminate verticle instead of horizontal around the radius. It will bend much easier, but the length of your piece will be limited to the width of your sheet instead of the length.
