Scratched worktop


No doubt this is an old question but do any of you have suggestions for dealing with a scratch on a very dark (almost black) laminated worktop ? Ideas appreciated.

Hi Phian,
The colour or pattern of a laminated surface is printed on a specially impregnated paper that is then heat cured. I would get some black or matching paint and paint over the scratch and then using a Stanley blade or similar scrape off the surplus on the edges. Maybe a dab of White Spirit on a rag along the scratch to remove any paint that has just gone over. Several applications may be needed if the scratch is deep
Good luck

If it is a superficial scratch, a mild abrasive such a scratch remover might work: http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNoE714&doy m8&C=SEO&U=strat15
If it's a deep scratch, then as previously suggested, filling with paint might work You might be able to get a near match by mixing some black and grey enamel paint. http://www.ontrackscart.co.uk/graphics/guide_humbrol_paints.htm
