counter top joint


So I installed 2 countertops next to eachother to make a desk top. The joint is 2 factory ends, but does not look very good. I need something to fill the gap, but I don't think caulk will be the answer. I checked the local big bow stores and they didn't have any kind of seam sealer. My question is, where can I get the correct product? Thanks

This is a tough one. All the seamseal I have found now is nothing like older types. Did you glue and bolt the joint, or can you separate it? And does it have a backsplash? If you can and there is no backsplash here is a trick. separate the two pieces 1/8 to 3/16 inch. You then need a 1/4 inch straight cut carbide router bit that can cut through the entire top. Clamp a straightedge to one piece so the cutter will remove material from both pieces. Actually it doesn't matter if it is perfectly straight, when you rejoin them the cuts on each piece will be a perfect match,

The top does have a backsplash. Also, it is installed between 2 walls.Thanks for the answer though.

Best bet then is to find a real laminate dealer and see if they have any of the real seam sealer.
