    Has anyone worked with this stuff. I'm currently using this on a kitchen . The stuff is really hard but routes OK with sharp cutters.As its thin its joined with size 20 biscuits.
    I need to join along the length which is about 1800mm . Whats the best material to use for the straight edge to get that butt joint perfect?
    Also I used the Hot glue method which they suggest on there you tube clip on joining . But when I glued the joints and done a dry fit one of the blocks came off and took a piece of the laminate with it .Has anyone experienced this before?

    I've used its once on a kitchen complete nightmare to work with tbh. Way I joined was to biscuit join and buy a special suction ratchet clamp and used the glue that was supplied with said worktops. I also had to fit a island with curves very intense as due to the price of the worktops

    That's not good , I was hoping for some reassurance. The tricky bit is routing straight along the length of 2000mmm and this coming together true. I worked off the uncut side of the other edge and as a guide rail with a 300mm bush guide but because of the long length you can get inconsistencies .i was supplied with a matching repair fill colour but the joint needs to be joined with a two part epoxy resin as per manufacturers instructions .
