Got an answer from a Panolam employee saying "Please contact our distributor in the UK, Arnold Lavers, Ltd".
This is their website: https://www.laver.co.uk/

I sent them an E-mail, let's see what they say...


An update about this. I got an answer from the people at the UK company Arnold Laver. They could get the laminate I was asking for, but it was not something they had in stock so they had to order from USA and the shipping cost would be on me. And the shipping cost for 2 laminate sheets would be.... 410!

Needless to say I had to decline  Cry

Nah, I'm quite the stubborn guy so if I've decided to get laminate I will get laminate one way or the other  Cheesy

Samples just arrived - I'll get some more in orange later. For blue it looks VERY good against my 2 different nintendo cabs (popeye and versus super mario is the lighter one).
It's a little thicker than the original stuff, but not much in it at all. I'm not sure how you are supposed to cut it though, it's very tough and I'll want clean edges.

A pair of large sharp scissors or tin snips usually, give yourself plently of extra room around the edge incase it splits of.  Then a router with a good sharp bit on it to trim to the shape.

I managed to get the RAL and NCS color codes for the laminates that Whitney uses, so it should make it easier to find european alternatives:

Liberty Red: RAL 3020    NCS S1580-Y90R

Carribean Blue RAL 220-70-35   NCS S1050-B10G

Fresh Papaya RAL 2008    NCS S1070-Y60R
