Ultra-smooth non-porous surface appearance, composed of 1″ thick molded epoxy resin. Available in four colors: Black, Grey, Putty, and Slate. Excellent resistance to practically all acids, alkalies and solvents, highly resistant to heat and normal physical abuse. Use wherever optimum physical and chemical resisting propeties are required.
Standard stainless steel work tops are fabricated of type 304 stainless steel with a No. 4 finish, but other types and finishes are available when specified. Type 316 is supplied for Perchloric Acid fume hoods. Stainless steel has good chemical resistance to a wide range of reagents, and is recommended for sterile and radiological laboratories.
Hardwood work tops are fabricated of solid edge grain Maple or Oak strips, glued together electronically, and finished with a baked-on clear synthetic varnish or penetrating oil. Hardwood work tops are not recommended for use in chemical laboratories. They are excellent for Physics tables, Electronic benches, and other tables where mechanical or physical work levels are prevalent.
Composite resin work tops are composed of a cellulose fiber reinforced phenolic resin core with a hard, smooth, non-glare, polyurethane copolymer surface, available in multiple colors and patterns. With a good chemical resistance to acids, alkalies and solvents, it may be used whenever a high degree of chemical resistance is required. (Not recommended for fume hood worksurfaces)
Composed of a particle board or plywood core with a hard, smooth, surface laminated to the core with water resistant adhesives. Available in a large choice of colors, patterns,and textures. High-pressure laminate work tops can have fair chemical resistance to a wide range of acids, alkalies, and solvents, (depending on color and pattern) and are recommended for light duty purposes.
