SeamFil Questions

Seamfil is always a solid color, as there is no way to replicate a multi-colored flecks or patterns with the Seamfil prodcut. When you order a Special or Custom Color Seamfil to match a laminate that has color variations, the Seamfil will be mixed to match to one of the main colors in the laminate.

SeamFil bonds to the substrate of the laminate (the wood underneath the laminate) and will not repair large burn marks, however it can be used to fill in small burnt areas where the damage is cleaned correctly.

SF-99 is a special proprietary blend of solvents that was designed for specific use on laminates and with SeamFil.  Other solvents can cause what’s called crazing which is dulling of the surface of your laminate or cracking.  We highly recommend only using SF-99 while doing your repair.

One (one ounce tube of SeamFil) will approximately fill an 8 foot seam of counter with an 1/8″ bead. If the seam is wider that 1/16″ (but should never be larger that 1/8″) a second application will probably be necessary. It can be used to fill an area that is no longer than 1/4″ in diameter.
