Benchkote™ is an absorbent, impermeable material designed to protect laboratory surfaces against hazardous spills. The material features a high-quality, smooth, strong, tear-resistant absorbent Whatman paper that quickly absorbs liquid spills with a laminated polyethylene layer that prevents flow through to the working surface. (Use polyethylene side up to collect deposits without absorption.) After use, the sheet is incinerated or disposed of according to local regulations. This makes both Benchkote™ and Benchkote Plus™ excellent products that comply with OSHA Regulation 29CFR 1910.1030 for Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens.
Benchkote Plus™ is a thicker, more absorbent material for more demanding applications. Absorbs in excess of 0.75 liters of water per square meter.
