Resistop – Solid Phenolic

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

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 papers or recycled papers are saturated / impregnated with phenolic resin and processed under high heat and pressure to form a composite panel. The resultant panel provides a chemical and abrasion resistant property required for harsh conditions in wet laboratories of science labs, water treatment plants, etc.

Produced in North America at an ISO Certified facility, Resistop 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.

Solid phenolic Resistop is available (up to 25mm (1″) thickness) with the typical thickness required as 3/4″ (19/20mm) or 1″ thick (25mm). Chemical resistant laminate is also produced in postforming grade (0.039” / 1.0 mm). With a choice of over 250 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 is LEED Qualified and Green Guard certified.
