    I am thinking of glueing up two pieces of Formica to make a non-stick sled. We are tearing up our Dibond coated with PSA/Silicon cover and they need replacing/repairing due to surface damage.

    Has anyone else tried Formica as a non-stick sled for their laminator?

    We use 4" or 5 "x54" pieces of .030 polystyrene. We draw a line about 1.5" inches in from one edge and then cover the entire thing with transfer tape. Every few layers, we peel the whole works off, lay another layer of transfer tape and its good to go again. We use them almost indefinitely unless one of us cuts through the line too hard.
