Important points to note:

We do not recommend any of our recycled plastic materials to be used as hob splashbacks under any circumstances as this would pose a fire risk.

Coffee Cup and Yoghurt Pot are the best choice for worktops where worktop joints prove necessary as they are perfectly able to be glued using the correct adhesives and the joints finished to a high standard.

Dapple and Snowflake can really only be used for worktops providing that the worktop required can be cut entirely from a 2m x 1m board. Gluing sections together has proven to be very difficult at best and even though we have found an adhesive that works, we don't feel that it is good enough for a worktop joint long term.
