We specialize in building conference tables. We have been using Wilsonart brand laminate a lot simply because it is readily available through fessenden hall. When we order sheets that are the same material we continually are seeing imperfections in the laminate. We will sometimes order 6 to 10 sheets and you can clearly see a slight difference in sheen from sheet to sheet and sometimes even the sheen will change within the sheet. Is laminate printed in a sequence like corian and other acrylics are? Why is this happening? Are there any reps that I can have come out to the shop and see what's going on? We are located in the Philadelphia area.
We have been noticing this for years now, even on basic stuff like white and black with name brand stuff.
It's not just laminate, we just had to replace 13 sheets of acrylic with horrible surface quality ( again a name brand ).
It's seems like these companies are focused on enhancing shareholder value and one of the ways to do it is by eliminating the quality control department and making the customer do it.
I think it has always been that way.
It is a good idea to buy sheets that are the same size so as to hopefully get them in sequence.
In any case you need to check them when they come in.
