Trespa Countertops

Choosing the right countertops for your laboratory is important for assuring a safe and highly functional work environment. Trespa countertops contain features that are crucial for all types of laboratory environments, from chemical to institutional. Both Trespa Top Lab Plus and Trespa Top Lab Base are manufactured for durability, cleanliness, and functionality.


Trespa countertops offer different levels of durability depending on the lab environment you are working in. The durability of Trespa Toplab Plus is useful for chemical, physical, analytical, and microbiological laboratories. Trespa’s Electron Beam Curing (EBC) technology gives the Trespa Toplab Plus surface a high resistance to aggressive chemicals. The durability of Trespa Top Lab Base makes the countertop long-lasting and preserves its appearance. Trespa Top Lab Base has a melamine surface that is scratch-resistant and highly resistant to wear, essential for educational and institutional environments where preservation of a clean, aesthetically pleasing appearance is important and chemical resistance is not necessary.


Since Trespa Top Lab Plus is manufactured with Electron Beam Curing (EBC) Technology, the surface contains antibacterial properties, thus maintaining cleanliness without the additional use of microbial substances. This surface is also easy to clean in instances where manual washing is necessary. These features are useful in lab environments where maintaining a high level of hygiene and avoiding contamination is crucial.

The Trespa Top Lab Base maintains its appearance even in environments where it is used and cleaned frequently. Bacteria build-up due to high levels of moisture is not a concern with Trespa Top Lab Base; its melamine surface resistant to mold and rotting as it is not affected by moisture.
