BenchShield surface protector is a highly protective, double-layered surface paper that protects workbenches and working areas from spilt chemicals, corrosive materials and toxic, infectious or radioactive substances. The top layer consists of highly absorbent cellulose that quickly absorbs spillages, whilst the second layer acts as a barrier from the spillage penetrating the bench surface. Both layers excel in preventing contamination of the covered surface and can be treated with disinfectants for use in clinical laboratories for the prevention of biological contamination.
BenchShield is smooth and firm, it does not inhibit the stability of bottles or tubes. These properties also allow the recovery of dry spills. Furthermore, the soft character of the carrier material lowers the risk of breaking glass. Liquid samples can be recovered by washing the absorbed spill from the inert surface with the appropriate buffer.
