Patriot Science Table - 24"W x 48"L x 30"H
Diversified Woodcrafts' Patriot Science Table features a solid apron and legs made from American-grown hardwood. The legs attach to the table at 13-gauge steel corner braces for ultimate durability. Adjustable leveling glides keep the table steady on all surfaces. The top surface is available in three materials – 1 1/4" ARP High-Pressure Plastic Laminate (good), 1 1/4" ChemGuard (better) or 1" Solid Epoxy Resin (best). The Patriot Science Table is made in the USA and backed by a five-year warranty.

Selecting Table Tops
When selecting a table top it is important to understand how the table will be used. The Patriot Science Table comes in three different top surfaces to accommodate a variety of settings.
1 1/4" ARP High Pressure Plastic Laminate is widely used for student science tables. It offers an excellent work surface that wears exceptionally well under normal use. Plastic laminate has superior resistance to scratching, with limited resistance to high temperatures and severe chemicals. Top construction consists of permanently bonding a .050 thick sheet of ARP High Pressure Laminate to a 45 lb. density industrial grade particle board core, bottom is covered with a .040 thick brown phenolic backer sheet to properly balance the resulting panel, maximizing it's resistance to warping. Technical data: exceeds 1800 wear cycles and 66 inches impact resistance. Edges of top are finished with vandal resistant T-molding. Corners have 1-3/4" radius. Color, black.
1 1/4" ChemGuard incorporates the decorative features of high pressure laminate into a durable, chemical resistant surfacing material. Tests prove ChemGuard has outstanding chemical resistance, plus significantly better NEMA wear value than competitive laminates. ChemGuard even has a Class 1 fire rating. A 3mm PVC molding is applied with heat sensitive adhesive to create an attractive waterproof and durable edge. Color, black.
1" Solid Epoxy Resin is impervious to normal laboratory chemicals and heat. It's monolithic composition eliminates the possibility of swelling, delamination, and exposure of the substrate. It's soft, low glare surface is simple to clean. Solid Epoxy Resin exhibits no effect when subjected to these common laboratory chemicals: Nitric Acid 70%, Acetic Acid (glacial), Hydrochloric Acid 20%, Sulfuric Acid 60%, Methyl Alcohol, Toluene, Benzene, and others. Solid Epoxy Resin is solid, homogeneous, molded from modified epoxy resins, completely oven cured during processing. It is extremely durable and completely impervious to moisture. Exposed edges and corners are finished with a 1/8" bevel. Color, black.
