Standard quality laminates are resistant against the surface temperature not exceeding 302° F (150° C) but will not resist intense localized heat, such as neglected cigarette butts, etc. Incorporating a metal foil in the laminate will tend to spread such localized heat over a wider area, and a cigarette-proof grade is available which gives reasonable protection. Such heat-resistant grades are not suitable for continuously damp situations (kitchen-sink fixtures, etc.), and will not bend so readily as the standard grades.
