Durcon Introduces Solicor-CR â€“ A Lightweight Worktop for Lab Applications
TAYLOR, TX (January 15, 2019) â€“ 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 â€“ 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 â€œsolid coreâ€?, 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 todayâ€™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, â€œSince 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 doesnâ€™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.â€?
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 Durconâ€™s Epoxy Resin product line, is available in 5â€™ x 10â€™ sheets in 0.375â€?, 0.5â€?, 0.75â€? and 1.0â€? thicknesses, and weighs an impressive 7.4 lbs/sq. ft. (1.0â€? thick option). It is proudly manufactured and fabricated in the USA, and guaranteed by an industry-best 10-year warranty.
