Collections / Phenolic Resin Countertop

    Phenolic resin countertops consists of a simple design where layers of craft paper are fused together to form a light-weight slab that remains incredibly durable. The resulting countertop is highly resistant to bacterial, fungal, and chemical substances. This specific type of countertop is popular in most high school or middle school science labs.    

    Phenolic resin maintains 90% of the characteristics of epoxy at a fraction of the price.Phenolic resin countertops are composite panels manufactured by layering natural kraft papers that have been saturated with phenolic resin and processed under high heat to form a solid surface composite panel.These counter tops are lightweight, hard, durable and highly chemical resistant. They are oil and moisture resistant and are resistant to most bacteria and fungus. Phenolic resin is an excellent choice for laboratory environments with continuous heat exposure up to 350°F (176°C).

    Phenolic resin countertops are excellent choices for environments where lab experiments must be performed in an environment free of contamination. In this type of environment, hygiene, cleanliness, chemical and stain resistance are of utmost importance.

    Phenolic Resin Countertops and table tops meet the requirements of most laboratories while at the same time bringing a range of additional benefits. These benefits include chemical, wear and water resistance.Because of the variety of chemicals used in experiments, worktops in these types of laboratory environments are particularly vulnerable and must be constructed of materials that can withstand spills, resist scuffs and abrasions and hold up well against impact and stress cracking. These countertops will perform well for many years, keeping your lab clean looking and running efficiently.

    Phenolic resin is an easy material to work with from a manufacturing standpoint lending itself well to customization, and it is much less expensive when compared to epoxy.It is readily available which means shorter lead times on your projects.
