FAQ’s for ColorFill


What is the shelf life of ColorFill?

24 months – ColorFill is completely Frost Free and is best stored in cool conditions.

Do you have a ColorFill chart?

We exactly match all laminates, flooring, worktop, against ColorFill &  ColorSealant. The references can be obtained from any Unika distributor, calling Unika direct or visiting the ColorFill Database of this website.


The range of Worktops and Flooring I stock are not on your database.  How do I find out the ColorFill references to match?

You need to find out the manufacturer of the laminate and the laminate reference number and then search the ColorFill database.  If the reference number is still not there you will need to send a small sample of the laminate to Unika and we will match this for you and contact you with the ColorFill reference number.


How many ColorFill tubes will I need per worktop joint?

One 25g ColorFill tube is sufficient to join one worktop joint.


Can I use ColorFill for natural timber with a paint or varnish finish?

No, it is not suitable for natural timber with a paint/varnish finish.  Please use FloorFill repair for timber.


How do I remove any excess ColorFill from laminate?

Repairing Chips and Scratches – Use ColorFill solvent and a white tissue being careful not to dislodge any ColorFill from the repaired area.  A final coat of ColorFill can be applied later if necessary.

Sealing Worktop Joints – Use ColorFill solvent and a white tissue being careful not to dislodge any ColorFill.  Do this by cleaning across the joint at 90 degrees to the cut at all times.

FAQ’s for Worktop Jigs


Can I use my existing router with Unika Jigs?

You need a guide bush with an outer diameter of 30mm and a 12.7mm diameter cutter.  We recommend routers rated at a minimum of 1500w for cutting worktops.  From listening to Kitchen Fitters and Carpenters over the years we have compiled the following trouble shooting guide to help overcome common problems encountered when using a Unika Jig.  Used correctly, your jig will give perfect results every time.

I am getting a good finish but the male & female do not match up?
