Countertops are loosely also called worktops or work-surfaces and are commonly seen in kitchens, bathrooms, and laboratories around the world in homes, offices, schools and medical facilities. However, when you are working with chemicals, heat or heavy objects, it is important to have a surface to work on that can take the abuse and still provide exceptional service down the road. These are the places a person really needs to have a chemical resistant lab countertop.

AGR Fabricators have been in the business of providing lab countertops for over 40 years.

A laboratory environment needs an extremely strong and chemical resistant lab countertop that can withstand high temperatures, is non-porous and is durable.
The Need for Lab Countertops
Laboratory countertops are used by school students for practical sessions in chemistry, among other science subjects. Spillages are a big risk with inexperienced students handling corrosive chemicals, despite all the precautions and safety measures in place. Lab countertops also need to be resistant to fire and heat as both these dangers are very real as a direct consequence of accidents between reactive chemicals, bunsen burners and dropped equipment and can pose a real danger to students and lab personnel.
In medical facilities, countertops need to be durable to take on the day-to-day, round the clock use by lab personnel running medical tests in hospitals and conducting medical or other types of research. The risk of accidents is always present and the work counters need to be able to resist anything the user throws at it.
Advantages of Chemically Resistant Countertops
The countertops available from AGR Fabricators will withstand acids, salts, and solvents and present a non-porous surface so nothing soaks into the counter to cause damage to anything else laid on the counter. Using a chemical resistant lab countertop will lengthen the life of the countertop and prevent any damage to its look and structure. They are usually easy to care for, so they don’t need special care.
