Brittle Edge Trim

 

Edge trim which surrounds the panel is brittle and unstable.  

    Causes:
  • Repeated use of Acrylic / Polymer chemicals (wax) 

 

    Consequences:
  • Breaking of edge trim leaves laminate surface open to chemicals that can detatch surface covering.
  • Leaves laminate surface exposed to chipping
  • Lateral instability
  • Allows water/chemicals used in cleaning to corrode understructure
  • Safety hazard from personnel tripping
