EDGE GRAIN MAPLE LABORATORY COUNTERTOPS

Edge grain maple bench tops, also known as butcher block, are robust and forgiving in physically demanding environments. The finish, DURAKRYL 102, is a tough, acrylic coating that repels alcohol, bleach and most household solvents. This is one of the few materials that can take hard wear and tear, be resurfaced or repaired without any special tools or particular skill, and end up looking as great as ever. Keep in mind that this material is ideal for physical testing environments. It is suitable for use in biological areas, but has poor chemical resistance properties.

HIGH PRESSURE PLASTIC LAMINATE COUNTERTOPS

High pressure plastic laminate laboratory countertops are budget-friendly and work well in many areas. Laminate laboratory countertops are simply a “face” layer of plastic secured to a core under elevated temperature and pressure. The properties of the “face” layer can vary and different “grades” of laminate tops are available.
