    Plastic laminate is usually used for counters, cabinets, and wall panels (backsplashes in commercial applications). It is not usually used as a flooring.

    Plastic laminate is durable under most conditions. It can burn so hot pots and pans shouldn't go directly on it. It also can chip or scratch with heavy impact, especially near corners and seams. Also try not to leave large puddles of water standing for long at seams, as the adhesive can loosen, and water can seep below - eventually causing delamination.

    Also take care not to use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads when cleaning. A soft cloth and multi-surface spray is sufficient for cleaning.
