TRESPA® TOPLABPLUS® AND TRESPA® TOPLABECO-FIBRE® – A CHOICE FOR CLEAN AND STERILE WORK SURFACES

Today’s laboratory demands compliance with rigorous codes and standards. Therefore, selecting the right material for laboratory worktops and furniture is of crucial importance because tests and experiments depend on non-contaminated environments.

Developed especially for laboratory environments, Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® remain aesthetically pleasing while offering a high standard of hygiene, strength and durability for diverse surroundings such as chemical, analytical and biological laboratories. Trespa’s underlying technology transforms wood-based fibers with thermosetting resins, under high pressure and at high temperatures, into robust compact laminate panels that meet the most challenging specifications. Trespa’s unique in-house technology, Electron Beam Curing (EBC), ensures that each panel surface is easy to clean and resistant to a large number of aggressive chemicals.

Clean surface

In an environment where hygiene and avoidance of contamination is key, Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® provide an ideal choice. Thanks to its unique closed surface composition, the products show significantly low dirt pick up, are impervious to mold and rot,and are resistant to non-abrasive organic cleaning solvents – thus making the product easy to clean and disinfect.

Chemical resistance

Used extensively in a wide variety of laboratories worldwide, including chemical, analytical, microbiological and educational laboratories, Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® are resistant to a large number of aggressive chemicals as identified by SEFA (Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association) and PSI (Professional Services Industries), if cleaned within 24 hours.

Antimicrobial performance

Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® have inherent antibacterial properties without the addition of microbial additives. An independent test by British Industrial Microbiological Services Ltd. (IMSL) shows an almost complete elimination of certain bacteria after 24 hours1.

Long life time

Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® are versatile materials featuring incredibly durable surfaces. Engineered for moisture and scratch resistance, the products retain their aesthetical appeal throughout their lifetime. This is why Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa®TopLabECO-FIBRE® are used for work surfaces, shelves and cabinet construction in laboratories around the world.

Design flexibility

Today’s laboratory is fast-paced and professional. With a dense and homogeneous core, Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® can be machined similar to high quality hardwood using standard carpentry tools – leaving crisp, clean edges and uniform openings. Trespa products can also be easily retrofitted in the field for new taps, sinks and other equipment, without compromising performance or appearance. Trespa® TopLabPLUS® and Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® are available in several thicknesses, colors and sizes. Using Trespa’s carefully selected panel sizes, laboratories can be designed allowing for material optimization and reduced number of joints for various applications.

Respect for our environment

Trespa strongly believes that any change should start with the company itself. Trespa’s approach towards sustainability starts from an objective and fact based analysis of its environmental footprint along the entire value chain, including a recurring Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) according to ISO 14040. Trespa continuously strives to reduce its impact on the environment, by reduction of upstream contributions from raw material production and transport, onsite emissions, and primary energy use.

TRESPA® TOPLABECO-FIBRE®

Colored all the way through

Using Trespa’s Dry Forming (DF) technology, Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® is a color-through material with a natural look, enabling designers to create highly individual laboratory environments. Manufactured with natural wood fibers, each panel has a natural feel with slight color variation. Due to its unique color-through characteristics and color retention, the panels are extremely durable, even in the rare case of damage.

PEFC certification

With a need to find environmentally sound solutions, public authorities and corporate procurement policies increasingly demand reassurance on sustainability. Trespa chooses to acquire the wood fibers, major raw materials used for Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE®, from PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) certified forests resulting in Trespa® TopLabECO-FIBRE® ‘s PEFC product certification.
