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.
While phenolic resin is strikingly similar to epoxy resin, the materials differ in their ability to conduct heat. Work requiring a prolonged exposure of 350 degrees or more is better suited for epoxy worktops.
PSA Laboratory Furniture installs your new phenolic resin countertops along with the rest of your lab furniture. We work on a coordinated schedule to save time and money when setting up your counters. By getting your new lab design finished faster, you can get started working right away.
The cost of phenolic resin is slightly lower than that of the epoxy resin. Keep in mind, this economic factor comes with the expense of a minor sacrifice in heat resistance.
