  1. What are the best laminate types for heat resistance? What temperatures can they stand?

  2. Hi Tim,
    Our Laminate worktops are heat resistant, but if you are looking for durability and very high heat resistance, then we recommend our Solid Laminate worktops that can withstand temperatures of up to 220C!
    Many thanks,
    Adam @ Worktop Express
