Preventing Damage

Epoxy Resin is the material of choice for the harsh chemical environment of the laboratory. However, epoxy resin products are subject to Thermal Shock and are not warranted against damage from liquid nitrogen or dry ice. Abuse caused by the improper use of these materials could cause cracking or sink failure.
