Rated 3 out of 5Â by krohla Not Laminated, Removing Sticker Can Ruin Finish
Bought some of these shelves for some garage shelving. The finish appears laminated, but discovered it is just paint over particle board when I attempted to remove the Rubbermaid label on each shelf. Only the edge is laminated. The large label will not peel off without scraping it off, or using a solvent, both of which ruin the very thin paint surface. Water won't dissolve the glue. I advise leaving the labels on or buying a better quality laminated shelf.

We purchased these shelves trusting the Rubbermaid brand for great quality products. However, when it came time to putting up the shelves, the first step of removing the labels was almost impossible. We used soap and water on one and quickly found out that the outer coating is made of paper, and since the label was also paper, it was adhering much too well. The wood underneath warped and the paper coating came off so that now we will need to cover it up with contact paper to look nice.
Suggestion: Rubbermaid -- you should be using plastic or vinyl labels that don't rip when you try to take them off of the shelf!

Simple product, but the paper label could be tricky to remove. I found it easy enough to pry two corners up at one end with my fingernails, the slowly & evenly pull the label off. Took less than 30 seconds.

Worth the price for basic projects. Resists warping. Worst thing is trying to get the huge sku sticker off. Almost gave it a 2 for appearance, because you can really either waste a ton of time getting it off or you'll scratch the surface
