Solid Surface Work Surfaces
Solid Surface materials has been used successfully in various types of laboratories as bench tops and other work surfaces. The seamless design flexibility, ease of fabrication, durability and ability to be renewed to its original appearance make Solid surface a versatile material to use in a lab. In fact, solid surfaces are listed in SEFA 3-2002, Recommended Practices for Work Surfaces, by Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA),
However, every laboratory application is unique and there are multiple factors that should be considered in deciding the suitability of solid surface in a particular installation. Some of these include:
• Chemicals in use
• Concentrations of the chemicals used
• Frequency and length of direct exposure to the chemicals
• Cleaning/maintenance procedures and performance expectations
Each of these can have an effect on the visual performance of the work surface as well as the degree of care and maintenance that is required to restore the original appearance of the top. The best practice is to install a test piece of material to confirm the suitability of Corian® in a particular application.
