Arborite Counter Cleaning and Stain Removal

When cleaning kitchen cabinet counter tops made from arborite, almost any kitchen cleaning product will do. In addition one can use vinegar or a mixture of baking soda and water. For stubborn stains, you can make a paste from baking soda and water, apply it to the stains and let sit for thirty minutes before washing. If, during the course of your kitchen cleaning, you encounter a scorch mark, try lightening it with peroxide, or a peroxide based cleaner such as Bio-OX Citrus Concentrate

I looked it up but Im still not sure what an Arborite kitchen counter is. From what I've read it sounds like for lack of another generic term, formica. Is there a difference?

Is there a product that will bring a shine back to a dull arborite kitchen counter? Will Armoral work as it does on cars?
