I have to laminate my router top with some formica.

How would spray 90 work over the long run? I don’t mind using a roll on type it’s just a big mess.

I can not recall which of the 3M sprays it is but one of the cans, maybe all, have written instructions for plastic laminates on the can. Be sure to spray both surfaces for a good bond.

it’ll work great, spray both surfaces, place long 1/2” pr 3/8” long dowels from the big box story

across the top of the table and place your laminate on top of the dowels, check for overhang on all 4 sides and

you’re good to go.

Take out 1 dowel at the end and attach the top, proceed across the table removing each dowel as you work

it down.

Some folks use a rubber roller for better adhesion and to flatten the top. After it’s trimmed up we used a metal file

to break the edge.

It’s 3M spray 90 for laminate. One good coat on both surfaces is all you need.

Myself, I would buy regular Weldwood contact cement in the can and spread it with a 2 dollar disposable roller.
spray 90 is too expensive for pieces that big. IMO

I spray Wilsonart #801 out of a pressure pot.
