Popular and common sink types
Epoxy resin is a popular choice for sinks in the laboratory setting. It is highly durable and extremely resistant to solvents, many acids and other inert chemicals that are typically found in both educational and commercial labs.
Many of our customers choose epoxy sinks because they provide a good all-round flexible solution. Labs that use sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid or nitric acid and other similarly corrosive compounds will benefit from choosing an epoxy resin sink.
Stainless steel is a good choice for the laboratory where acids or other corrosives will not be used, and a popular choice for wet labs. Stainless steel is non-porous and hygienic, resistant to both heat and fire, and easy to clean and maintain. It is strong considering its light weight, and resistant to many types of corrosion.
It is also easy to cut, weld and adapt to the space available. Stainless steel is long lasting and will maintain its attributes even in very wet or hot environments, making it good long-term value for money in many laboratory settings.
