Phenolic Laboratory Counter Tops

Canadian Scientific Lab Systems is Canada's premier distributor and installers of Durcon phenolic chemical grade pre-fabricated laboratory counter tops and epoxy sinks used in academic science rooms, research labs, product developement & quality control labs and industrial operations.

Durcon Solid Phenolic Compact (SPC) is produced by saturating multiple layers of kraft paper with phenolic resin. SPC is a balanced construction on both top and bottom for increased product stability. For increased chemical resistance, a polyester sheet is added and the resulting sandwich is fused together under heat and pressure. This thermosetting process creates strong, irreversible bonds that contribute to SPC's chemical resistance and durability.

Durcon Phenolic chemical grade work surfaces are the prefered choice for laboratory, bio and research environments for critical areas such as chemical resistance, non-absorbency, vibration damping and cleanability. Phenolic standard grade work surfaces are designed for lab desks, shelving and non critical areas of the lab's chemical environment.

Canadian Scientific will help you determine the correct phenolic product for your application, offer design assistance and after-installation care & maintenance suggestions. Where requested, CSi will also use its experienced factory trained installation contractors to install your phenolic counter tops, sinks and other lab equipment to complete your projects on time and on budget. Where millwork contractors wish to install our pre-fabricated phenolic, we provide detailed instructions, and tips for complicated installations.
