Equipping your K-12 science lab with the right furniture is crucial for creating a safe, functional, and inspiring learning environment. One of the most important considerations is choosing the right tables for your students. These surfaces will be exposed to a wide range of chemicals during experiments, so selecting chemical resistant tables is essential.

Here at Allied, we understand the unique needs of science classrooms. That’s why we are proud to offer our Chem-K12™ Laminate, a high-pressure laminate specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of your science labs.

Why Choose Chem-K12™ Laminate?

Science experiments often involve various chemicals, some of which can be corrosive or harmful if not handled properly. Spills and accidents are inevitable in any lab setting, so having surfaces that can withstand these chemicals is critical.

Chemical resistant tables offer several key benefits:

  • Enhanced Safety: They create a safer environment for students by preventing harmful reactions or damage from accidental spills.
  • Durability: They can withstand years of wear and tear, reducing the need for frequent replacements and saving costs in the long run.
  • Easy Maintenance: Their non-porous surface makes them easy to clean and maintain, minimizing the risk of residual chemicals lingering and potentially causing harm.
  • Stain Resistance: They resist stains from dyes, markers, and other substances commonly used in science experiments, keeping your lab looking clean and professional.

Chem-K12 Laminate: Superior Chemical Resistance for Your K-12 Science Lab

Chem-K12 Laminate is a high-quality, chemical resistant table top solution designed specifically for the needs of K-12 science labs. It offers exceptional resistance to a wide range of chemicals commonly used in K-12 science experiments, including:

  • Acids: Acetic acid, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid
  • Bases: Sodium hydroxide, ammonium hydroxide
  • Solvents: Acetone, isopropyl alcohol, methanol
  • Other common lab chemicals: Ethanol, bleach, hydrogen peroxide, and many more

It is important to note that while Chem-K12 Laminate offers impressive chemical resistance, it is always recommended to consult the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for each specific chemical used in your classroom and follow proper safety protocols.

Additional Benefits of Chem-K12 Laminate

Beyond its exceptional chemical resistance, Chem-K12 Laminate offers several other advantages that make it an ideal choice for your K-12 science lab:

  • Durable: It is built to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use in a busy science classroom.
  • Stain Resistant: It easily wipes clean, preventing lasting marks and stains from experiments.
  • Easy to Maintain: Requires minimal upkeep for a long-lasting, attractive surface.

Investing in Safety and Durability with Chemical Resistant Tables

Choosing the right tables for your K-12 science lab is an investment in the safety, well-being, and learning experience of your students.

In addition to the points mentioned above, here are some other factors to consider when choosing chemical resistant tables for your K-12 science lab:

  • Table base material: Choose a sturdy and corrosion-resistant base material like steel or wood.
  • Tabletop thickness: Opt for a thicker tabletop (around 1 inch) for better durability and impact resistance.
  • Edging options: Consider glued edges, rather than t-mold for added safety and easier cleaning.

By carefully considering these factors and the unique needs of your science lab, you can ensure you select the optimal chemical resistant tables that will provide a safe, durable, and functional learning environment for your students for years to come.
