General description


Benchkote® is an absorbent, impermeable material designed to protect laboratory surfaces against hazardous spills. The material features a high-quality, smooth, absorbent Whatman paper which quickly absorbs liquid spills and a laminated polyethylene layer that prevent flow through to the working surface. After use the sheet is incinerated or disposed of acording to local regulations.
