Old 1970s Kitchen Countertops and Backsplash


Hi All,

I'm replacing my counters with Granite. However, I'm ripping up old counters and backsplash myself. With that, as I've begun to rip it up a bit, I started wondering what is the material (formica???) and does it contain asbestos or lead? Please advise, pics attached.

Also, what is in the glue and do I need to remove for tile backsplash?

It contains neither . Are you taking off the entire counter or trying to take off the formica ?
