Durcon® & Trespa® Phenolic Laboratory Work Surfaces

Canadian Scientific Lab Systems is Canada’s premier distributor and installers of Durcon® and Trespa® phenolic laboratory counter tops used in academic science rooms, research labs, product development & quality control labs and industrial operations. Millwork shops, building contractors and private industry prefer Canadian Scientific to supply epoxy & phenolic products to complete their lab projects.

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. Canadian Scientific will help you determine the correct phenolic product for your application, offer design assistance and after-installation care & maintenance suggestions.
