Teka,

I presume this will be where a sink or such has been cut into

the worktop, waterproof P.V.A. adhesive is the easiest, otherwise

any bitumen based sealant, alternatively, silicone will be o/k.

Open ends will have a cover strip to be fitted, treat top to top same as a cutout

Derek.

Hello Teka

I use wet rot wood hardener for this job. It is thinner than PVA so will soak into the wood better. allow to dry between coats and continue until the chipboard wont soak up any more. I recently put new worktops in my kitchen and put six coats of hardener on.
