Standard high pressure laminate (HPL) is used on all standard work bench work surfaces, shelves, carts etc. It is very common to have a standard laminate upper or lower shelf when using an ESD work surface.
A solid black chemical resistant composite, thermo-fused under heat and pressure to form the entire thickness of the top. It is designed for use as counter tops, pegboards and reagent racks. Phenolic Resin will not stain or etch when exposed to most chemicals or solvents.
Phenolic Resin exhibits no effect when subjected to these common laboratory chemicals: Nitric Acid 30%, Acetic Acid 98%, Hydrofluoric Acid 48%, Sulfuric Acid 33%, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Phosphoric Acid 85% and others.
Phenolic resin counter tops manufactured by Formica Corp or Trespa
Which work surface will withstand specific chemicals?
Before you purchase any work surface, get the details on what will work for your situation.
ESD laminated is the same material as HPL but has a carbon layer for dissipation of static,
ESD dissipation rates are greater than 10/6th but less than 10/9th.
Two ground bolts are supplied, one to each side of the work surface
Optional Grounding banana jack and ground wires
WSI provdied a total grounding systems that grounds all surfaces, shelves and the frame to earth ground, ll ground wires are standard with this option, plug and play
Heavy wall 18 ga stainless steel
Available with wood core or clean room 100% stainless steel under core
All edges are welded to prevent any water from penetrating the wood core
Brushed finish to hide any scratches and for up keep
Steel cap is glued to wood core and is cured overnight for positive bond
Durable Epoxy work surfaces resist heat and chemicals
Epoxy designs and manufactures work surfaces and components to the highest standards of the industry. Extensive testing shows Epoxy surfaces resist discoloration, blistering, and cracking even under the harshest conditions. This extreme high chemical and heat resistance means Epoxy work surface components will appear new even after years of hard work.
The rich color and chemical resistance quality permeates the entire Epoxy work surface consistently without depending on surface coating for protection or use.
Fire Resistance, Char Resistance, Heat Resistance
Available colors: Black or Gray, Green Blue, White
Best lead time when using Black
Wilsonart® Chemsurf® Chemical-Resistant Laminate is produced for work tops and cabinet surfacing in intermediate-type laboratories where weight or cost constraints rule out slate, epoxy or stainless steel; the possibility of chemical spills rules out conventional high- pressure decorative laminate; or where a trend-aware colored or patterned surface is desired. Chemsurf is also recommended in areas where indiscriminate use of a variety of cleaning agents may be used.
All worksurfaces come with a .125 chamfer front edge.
Stocking Color: Med Gray, Black,
Other color are available with a 3 to 4 week lead time
