The photographs have been taken with the aid of a Scanning Electron Microscope. They clearly demonstrate the difference between a surface produced with respa EBC t e c h n o l o g y ( r e s p a o p L a b P L U S and a surface of traditional melamine. )
These microscopic pictures of the urethane-acrylic surface of respa opLabPLUS show that there is no difference between fresh material and material with which 10 years of aggressive cleaning is simulated.

Cleanability In an environment where hygiene is key, Trespa TopLabPLUS provides the best choice. Its surface is absolutely impervious to most materials used in biochemical and medical laboratories: radio-isotopes, human tissue and blood samples or bacteria. Biological or clinical test results are dependent on non- contamination. Trespa TopLabPLUS provides a surface impermeable to most bacteria, molds or micro- organisms. Resistant to dyes and organic solvents, Trespa TopLabPLUS is water-resistant and remains easy to clean or disinfect.
Thanks to the large size of Trespa TopLabPLUS panels, the installation of large work tops with fewer joints is possible which fits the requirement for hygienic solutions. Moreover, for added hygiene, panels need not be glued onto a sub-structure. Trespa TopLabPLUS is self supporting from 1/2 in thickness and has a high load bearing ability.
