Chipped arborite counter repair


I have a countertop with a chip out of the arborite on the bullnose right beside the stove. It is about the size of a quarter and I have no idea where the little piece is. I have a small peice of the same arborite but I doubt I could patch it in with any sucess. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could hide/cover/trim etc this blemish so that it doesn't look like a total hack job? The counters are too old to match the arborite and I don't want to replace the entire kitchen worth of counters right now. I feel like there has to be some solution but haven't been able to think of it yet. Thanks!

Chipped arborite counter repair


Large laminate repairs are difficult to do to be unoticable. If you have a piece of that material, that is the best thing to use. You would have to cut out the chip and a piece to precisely fit the cutout. There is a material used to touch up small scratches or chips called Seamfil. It is available at dealers that sell laminates, but you have to mix colors to get your exact color.

These were suggestions from Arborites own website.
