Formaspace ESD kits ensure high quality production of electronic components, practically eliminating surface shedding to provide a tough, durable work surface. Our ESD laminates are highly resistant to abrasion and humidity, ensuring many years of ESD compliance. Formaspace ESD kits come with special heavy-duty brass contact plugs so you can have the confidence you need for sensitive electronics design, testing, production, and repair.
Standard laminate is a good all-around surface material, which we supply with a radiused comfort edge for ergonomic support. Our standard laminates are laid over high density engineered substrate using environmentally sensitive adhesives.
Galvanized steel is tough and lower cost than most other metal surfaces, making it ideal for use in heavy-duty industrial or production applications. Galvanized steel is coated in zinc, so it won't corrode unless the zinc plating is worn off by heavy abrasive use. Galvanized steel can also be used in office or other settings where customers desire a heavy-duty industrial appearance.
Despite it's tough sounding name, high density polyethylene (HDPE) is soft compared to other surface materials. That makes it great for working on soft or delicate products which may scratch against harder surfaces. HDPE is often used in laboratory environments due to its lack of porosity and resistance to many solvents.
Maple surfaces look awesome and can take a pounding, making them ideal for a wide variety of uses, including high-end residential and office applications as well as heavy duty industrial applications. After years of tough use, maple surfaces retain their natural beauty and character. Constructed of solid hardwood, kilned dried and milled to exacting standards, our maple tops are 1 ¾" thick edge-grain with
1/8" roundover edges.
Phenolic resin is well suited to numerous industrial and laboratory applications. Phenolic resin is a non-absorbent, moderately chemically resistant, heat resistant, moisture resistant, easy to clean, extremely hard material. Formaspace stocks phenolic resin in multiple colors, and can special order custom colors on request.
Stainless steel is recommended in carbon-based chemical labs, clean rooms, and specialty settings. Stainless is easy to clean and non-absorbent, so it has no pores or cracks to harbor dirt, grime, or bacteria. Attractive and requires minimal care. Stainless steel is the greenest material Formaspace carries due its infinite design lifetime and 100%, low-energy recyclability.
Chemical resistant laminate offers moderate resistance to non-corrosive and non-volatile chemicals. Chemical resistant laminates are suggested for light duty laboratory applications or where price is the most important purchase criteria.
Chemical resistant laminates are not suggested in environments where surfaces may come in contact with carbon-based chemicals, environments conducive to communicable diseases, or environments prohibiting volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Epoxy resin offers the highest and most trusted standard in chemical resistance, including corrosive chemicals, as well as very high temperature tolerance. Epoxy is extremely strong and long lasting, and is now available in a wide variety of custom cuts and colors.
Epoxy is a custom order, and may be subject to unpredictable lead times to delivery.
