Durcon Epoxy Resin is a solid cast, monolithic epoxy resin countertop material, molded and oven-cured as a solid, uniformly constructed product, with smooth, nonspecular and non-glaring finish, offering excellent quality laboratory work surfaces and complimentary epoxy sink units. Produced at the ISO 9000 Certified manufacturing facility at the Durcon, Inc. plant in Taylor, Texas. The impressive heat and chemical resistance of solid cast epoxy resin makes the Durcon the most popular choice for the rigors of a laboratory environment. The outstanding qualities of epoxy resin provide the safest, most economical and long-lasting work surface available. DURCON epoxy laboratory countertops are asbestos free and a LEED qualified material.
Epoxy resin surfaces resist discoloration, blistering, and cracking even under the harshest conditions. This extremely high chemical and heat resistance means cast epoxy work surfaces and components, with proper maintenance procedures, will look like new after years of hard work in the laboratory or scientific environment.
Solid cast Epoxy work surfaces or laboratory tops do not depend on surface coating for protection or use low cost core material. Their strength and durability are built right into each sheet or sink.
The smooth, matte, medium to low-sheen, non-glare finish eliminates distracting glare or light reflection and is easy to maintain. Durcon Epoxy is in compliance with Woodworking Institute (W.I.) section 18 and typically specified in sections 12 36 00 Countertops and 12 36 53 - LABORATORY WORK SURFACES in Division 12 specifications.
