Phenolic Resin Countertops and Worksurfaces
Standard Phenolic Resin countertops are specifically designed for interior applications. Their integrated decorative surface is designed for demanding environments. It is impact, scratch and wear resistant. Panels are easy to keep clean and as they do not absorb or retain moisture they can be cleaned frequently, using standard cleaning agents and disinfectants.
The combination of a solid, homogenous core with a hard surface based on melamine resins gives phenolic resin tops exceptional impact resistance. This is confirmed by its day-to-day practical use as wall cladding in public rooms and rooms susceptible to vandalism, sanitary cubicles or as bumper rails in hospital corridors.
Scratch and Wear Resistant
The special surface structure and durability provide excellent scratch resistance. Even in heavy-duty use, phenolic tops retains their appearance for a very long time. The panel is highly resistant to wear, making it ideal for installation where heavy use and frequent cleaning are expected. Standard Phenolic Resin is commonly utilized in office or laboratory furniture applications.
Moisture Resistant Phenolic
Phenolic Resin countertops and tops are not adversely affected by moisture and are not susceptible to discoloration, mold or rot. Both the worksurface and the core are manufactured using specific, thermosetting resins, which make them impervious to moisture. The dimensional stability and workability of phenolic resin are comparable to those of hardwood.
