This review is from: Kampel 901 White Seam-Fil 1 Oz Tube
I was pretty desperate to find some way to fix my counter short of replacing it. The laminate edging strip was gone, so I fastened on wood edging and primed it, then used Seamfil to fill the gap between the edging and the laminate countertop. The instructions advise working it with a putty knife till it thickens and then applying it but I got the best results from using it straight out of the tube -- it tooled smoothly, blended in well with my existing laminate, and hardened quickly. It did crack when I tried to fill a dime-size chip/hole with it, so in retrospect I would have filled that hole slowly one layer at a time. I didn't have much luck filling in shallow scratches (tooling it with a putty knife seems to scrape away any layer that might have camouflaged the scratch, later I will try wiping the excess with my finger instead). After the Seamfil cured I taped off the new edging and gave it several coats of epoxy spray paint; it looks great, repels water and cleans up easily. Seamfil turned out to be a very useful product at a reasonable price.
