Top coat on laminate counters


I am wanting to redo my laminate counter tops in the kitchen. I am wondering what to use as the top coat to seal the paint that I am doing. I want something that is durable, heat resistant and can be used. I cook a lot so I want to be able to put things on it and not worry about scratching the surface or it coming off. I know that there are kits out there that have the top coat in it, but I'm not impressed with the kits and it isn't the exact look I am going for. I have tried to figure out what top coat they use, but with little luck. I have researched it and some websites say to use a polycrylic, an epoxy or polyurethane top coat. I don't know which one will work the best. Any suggestions would be very helpful!

Not a good idea and anything you use won't last.
Laminate counter tops are made of plastic, "they" don't use a top coat of anything.
