Resistop Phenolic

- A Fresh Alternative in Laboratory Work Surfaces -

Resistop, Chemical and Stain-Resistant Solid Phenolic Core Laboratory Grade Compact Laminate panels are a special category of decorative panels engineered to resist staining
from a wide variety of acids, solvents, general reagents and cleaning agents. See care and maintenance procedures for proper cleaning and handling

Resistop is a high-pressure solid composite panel, made from natural kraft paper and engineered as laboratory grade surfaces commonly exposed to acids, solvents, general reagents and cleaning agents. The natural kraft recycled papers
are saturated / impregnated with phenolic resin and processed under high heat and pressure to form a composite panel. The resultant lab grade panel provides a chemical and abrasion resistant property required for harsh conditions in wet laboratories of science labs, water treatment plants (WWT), research facilities, etc.

Produced in North America at a Wilson Art ISO Certified facility with Chemsurf technology, Resistop solid phenolic is also rated as a “anti-static protective material” by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM D257-78) and is primarily suitable for laboratory work surfaces, fume hood decks, Fume hood liner panels, pegboards (drying racks), reagent racks, commercial countertops, cabinet drawer fronts, locker drawers, shelving, window sills, toilet partitions, and decorative casework components. Resistop panels are a uniform low-sheen matte textured finished surface, extremely hard and durable and resistant to scratches and abrasion, while providing exceptional chemical and stain resistance with the flexibility and design advantage attributed to Thick, Solid Phenolic Cores. 

Greenguard-certified low-emission surfacing makes for a healthier environment in any setting: commercial, residential, hospitality or healthcare, K-12 schools for furniture products. Resistop solid phenolic can be used as a surface on Greenguard-certified office or school furniture to obtain a LEED-CI credit for Low Emitting Office Furniture (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Rating System for Commercial Interiors).

With a choice of over 200 solid, granite like and patterned color or wood grain colors, designing Laboratory Countertops, shelving, and other diverse applications, has never been easier for architects, consultants or in-house personnel.

RESISTOP brand chemical resistant, solid compact laminates are manufactured for application to interior horizontal and vertical surfaces where a superior wear and chemical resistant surface is required. In addition to providing resistance to chemical spills, it provides excellent resistance to scuff and abrasion. Specific applications may include laboratory bench tops, laboratory furniture as fascia panels, hospital or health facility countertops, and photographic processing work areas. Resistop laminates are certified to ISO 9002 since 1995 and has recently upgraded to ISO 9001:2000 in 2003 and are certified to the most stringent international testing standards.

Resistop is manufactured utilizing Phenol Formaldehyde resins (Phenolic Resins) rather than Urea Formaldehyde. Phenol Formaldehyde resins produce less free formaldehyde and thereby reduce the level of airborne contaminants in indoor air environments. Insist upon RESISTOP Phenolic Resin based composite panels for countertop applications.  Resistop sheets contain a minimum of 20% recovered materials by weight and only use certified renewable forest products. They contain no heavy metals, rain forest timbers or tropical hardwoods.
