What is Lamitak?
It’s the brand of high pressure laminates owned by TAK Products and Services. We produce high-quality laminates for the surfaces within your living and working spaces.
Why choose Lamitak?

Why buy laminates?
Lamitak laminates are designed to look and feel like materials such as woods, stones, fabrics and metals. Hence, they are an affordable, low-cost alternative when compared to the actual materials which often, can cost many times more.
What are laminates made of?
Laminates are made of layers of craft paper soaked in resin and bonded under high heat and pressure. They are durable as they are abrasion- and impact-resistant under normal use.
Are laminates hard to maintain?
Not at all. You can use warm water and a non-abrasive cloth to remove most stains. Use a mild household cleaner or detergent if necessary and rinse with water. For stubborn stains, apply a small amount of thinner and gently remove with a non-abrasive cloth before finishing up with a clean damp cloth. Avoid using any cleaning agent containing acid, alkali or sodium hypochlorite, as they may corrode, discolour or ruin the surface of the laminate. You can refer to our user care guide at the product information page.
Will laminates turn colour in time?
Laminates generally will not discolour but it is advisable to keep them away from direct sunlight or strong heat sources. In the kitchen, do not place hot cookware directly on laminate surfaces or expose laminates to temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius for prolonged periods.
What is Newedge?
Newedge is a brand of edgebands which gives a smooth, seamless finish. It is not another piece of laminate that has been cut to fit the edges but a special band made from ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene). Benefits of using Newedge include waterproofing of the substrate and the seamless finish.
Can I use laminates for the floor?
This is inadvisable as laminates are not meant for heavy and constant, surface-to-surface abrasion. However, it can be used on areas with minor traffic footfall such as display platforms.
Can I use laminates on the wall?
Most definitely! Laminates need to be applied onto a wood backing (substrate), then the wood backing is installed onto the wall. It is best to talk to your carpenter or ID if you would like to have this done. Laminates should not be applied directly onto walls as walls are porous. Doing so might cause the laminates to de-bond, i.e. come off.
Can I use laminates in the bathroom?
Lamitak laminates are suitable for vanities and shelves but the panels must be sealed on all sides with Newedge edgebands. It cannot be used on walls or in places where there is heavy flow of water.

Can I buy Lamitak laminates at the showroom?
Definitely! However, as laminates are considered as semi-finished end products, we recommend that you check with your ID or carpenter on the required specifications before making your purchase.
Can I install the laminates on my own?
Installing laminates requires much know-how and skill. We recommend that you seek the services of an experienced contractor or carpenter who can do the work to a high standard. Poorly installed laminates will not only look unsightly but will delaminate, i.e. peel off, after a while.
