The Formica counter has been finished. I do not use regular brush/roller applied contact cement that is commonly used. I used 3M Hi-Strength 90 Spray Adhesive. It comes in a spray can. Not cheap. About $14.00 per can. I used almost two cans on this counter top. I applied two coats to the plywood and two coats on the Formica. This spray adhesive goes on thin and evenly. It also becomes tacky within two to three minutes. And it sticks like crazy.  I have had adhesion problems on a previous project with the regular contact cement.
