Care and Maintenance of Chemical Resistant Lab Countertops

Care and Maintenance of Chemical Resistant Lab Countertops

Marring includes residue matter that is left on the surface of a Chemical Resistant Lab Countertop which appears as a line. It’ll remain smooth to the touch.  Marring may almost always be taken off using acetone or using a mild cleaning product and vigorous scrubbing.

The marred space must be cleaned using a soft cloth, as well as the weakest solution (water and soap) as a non-abrasive cleaning solution. If marring continues, you should progress to a white-colored Light Duty Scotch Brite Pad that is moistened using stronger agents.  Never utilize a dry Scotch Brite pad or additional more abrasive pads.

Scratches on Countertops

Sharp or heavy items, abrasives, or harder metals may dig into the surface and result in a scratch. Usually, scratches appear as a lighter shade of gray or white on such countertops and the color will vary on additional colored Chemical Resistant Lab Countertop.  Scratches are identified on a surface as rough to the touch along with a small depression.  Scratches are permanent yet won’t affect the performance of the work surface.

One aesthetic remedy for scratches includes coloring in the light scratch using a colored permanent marker.  The option never will perfectly match the gloss and color of the surrounding surface.  Adding a mineral oil coating to the surface is going to mask the scratch for a while and is going to require occasional maintenance.

Stained Surfaces

Staining may be caused by chemicals that are left to dry upon the surface.  Usually, chemical stains bleach or lighten a surface yet also can roughen and produce blistering or even crack the upper surface.  As with scratches, chemical stains will be permanent and, if they’ve led to too much damage, work surfaces might have to be replaced.  Maintenance and care are solutions to slowing down or preventing the process of replacement.
