  • Durcon Introduces Solicor-CR – A Lightweight Worktop for Lab Applications

    Jan 15 2019

    TAYLOR, TX (January 15, 2019) – Until now, laboratory-grade worksurfaces meant compromise. A material durable enough to withstand the harsh environment of a lab, but light enough for vertical application and casework like shelving, required a major concession in appearance – a large black core visible at every cross-section. This interrupted the cleanliness of a space that functionally demands copasetic hygiene.

    Solicor-CR is the answer. Named for its “solid core�, this worksurface eliminates the eyesore brought by archaic black cores of yesteryear. Solicor-CR is the monochromatic, color-through and chemical resistant, making it the ideal surface for today’s ultra-modern laboratories. With color options specifically developed to match Durcon Epoxy Graphite & Gray, this innovative material sets a new standard for labs by providing designers and builders with a robust combination of both performance and aesthetics.

    Durcon Vice President Kent Cook states, “Since the inception of Solicor-CR, we knew we wanted a material that could easily be paired with our epoxy resin product to create a tough lab that holds steady under unforgiving conditions, but doesn’t compromise in appearance. There are many advantages to our new Solicor-CR, and my favorite has got to be its combination of strength and attractiveness.�

    Engineered by Durcon parent company Wilsonart, Solicor-CR surpasses industry standards for chemical resistance, physical durability against impacts, scratching and marring, does not absorb moisture or corrode, and it achieved a highest-possible Class A for fire rating. All this performance is found in a surprisingly attractive compact that boasts a low weight density, making it easy to install.

    Solicor-CR is offered in Graphite & Gray, both color-matched with Durcon’s Epoxy Resin product line, is available in 5’ x 10’ sheets in 0.375�, 0.5�, 0.75� and 1.0� thicknesses, and weighs an impressive 7.4 lbs/sq. ft. (1.0� thick option). It is proudly manufactured and fabricated in the USA, and guaranteed by an industry-best 10-year warranty.
