PLASTIC LAMINATE

Countertops are constructed of 1/16″ decorative high-pressure laminate sheet on 44 – 45Ib density particle board core for an overall thickness of 1-1/4″. Counters are self-edged with a backer sheet underneath. Curbs are 3/4″ thick applied [loose] to the countertop with caulk and/or screws. The optional Plywood core is available upon request. Matte Finish is standard for laminate countertops.

  • Comes in many colors
  • Designed to be useful for hospitals, pharmacies, nurse stations, facility libraries, and more
  • HDPE is water-resistant and monolithic marine plastic; which is good for damp to wet applications

LAB GRADE/CHEMICAL RESISTANT LAMINATE

Countertops are constructed the same as Laminate but with Laboratory Grade laminate.

PHENOLIC RESIN

Countertops are made from a composite consisting of multiple layers of selected papers impregnated with special phenolic resins. Countertops are manufactured under heat and pressure to form a solid black chemical and corrosion-resistant composite throughout the entire thickness. Top and bottom surfaces are finished. Curbs are formed in the same material and applied with adhesive. Multiple thicknesses and colors are available; the black core is standard. Contact Labs USA for details.

*Note: Not recommended for use with direct contact with heat – use Epoxy Resin instead.

EPOXY RESIN

Countertops are monolithic and molded from a modified epoxy resin. Surfaces have a smooth, non-glare finish. Countertops are provided with a continuous drip groove 1/8″ wide x 1/8″ deep on the underside of all exposed edges. Edges are 90 degrees with a 1/8″ bevel. Epoxy is available 3/4″, 1″, or 1-1/4″ thick. Curbs are formed from the same material and applied in the field with adhesive. Epoxy is available in Black with optional colors for an additional charge. Contact Labs USA for details.

GREENSTONE™ EPOXY RESIN

Environmentally friendly countertops integrate post-consumer recycled material (less than 10% by weight) into laboratory-grade epoxy resin for uncompromising heat, chemical, scratch & stain resistance. As a low voe material, Greenstone can help “green”  building projects for the environment and contribute to certain LEED credits.

Color options are the same as for Epoxy Resin.

STAINLESS STEEL

Countertops are formed from 16 gage stainless-steel with Type 304 No. 4 finish.  Steel reinforcement channels are provided on the underside for added strength and rigidity.  Edges are formed at 90 degrees, or with an optional marine edge, for an overall thickness of 3/4″, 1″, or 1-1/4″ as required. Backsplash curbs are formed integrally with the countertop. Sink bowls are welded to the underside of the counters and ground smooth to eliminate seams. Counters are pitched toward the bowl for proper drainage. Sound deadening material is applied to the underside of countertops and sink bowls. 

*Type 316 material is available upon request.

Casework Benefits
