Trespa Athlon panels are specifically designed for interior applications. Their integrated decorative surface is designed for intensive use making it an ideal cost effective worksurface for laboratories. It is impact, scratch and wear resistant. Panels are easy to keep clean and as they do not absorb or retain moisture they can be cleaned frequently, using standard cleaning agents or strong disinfectants. In addition to the cost effective Trespa Athlon laboratory worksurface, Trespa TopLabPLUS provides the best Trespa worksurface for laboratory & hospital environments.

Impact Resistant

The combination of a solid, homogenous core with a hard surface based on melamine resins gives Trespa Athlon exceptional impact resistance. It provides a reasonable cost laboratory worktop that gives years of maintenance free use.

Scratch Resistant

The special surface structure and durability provide excellent scratch resistance. Even in heavy-duty use, Trespa Athlon retains its appearance for a very long time. The panel is highly resistant to wear, making it ideal for installation where heavy use and frequent cleaning are expected.

Moisture Resistant

Trespa Athlon is not adversely affected by moisture and is not susceptible to discoloration, mould or rot. Both the surface and the core are manufactured using specific, thermosetting resins, which make them impervious to moisture. The dimensional stability and workability of Trespa Athlon are comparable to those of hardwood.

Safe Fire Behaviour

Trespa Athlon is heat resistant and meets the requirements of national and international fire classifications for safe fire behaviour.  Due to the high density, Trespa Athlon ignites at relatively high temperature and carbonises in a way similar to (hard)wood. The panel material does not melt, drip or explode and retains its stability for a long period of time.

Environmental Considerations

Life Cycle analysis and reports by independent third parties confirm that Trespa products impact the environment less than alternative materials.  Read more about Trespa and the environment.

Velstone Worktops laboratory Worktops

Although theoretically there is no limit to the maximum dimension of the finished Laboratory Worktop, consideration is given to packing, weight and carrying restrictions and a suitable provision is made for ‘on site’ joints, wherever necessary. Traditional Solid Surface Laboratory tops are manufactured using 3-13 mm thick Solid Surface material bonded on 25mm thick MDF.


Trepa TopLab PLUS worksurface

Working surfaces in laboratories have to be very resistant to aggressive chemicals and other deleterious matter and to anything which is likely to contaminate experiments or test results. Each panel has an integrated, decorative surface based on pigmented, electron beam cured resins which are resistant to the most aggressive chemicals, and easy to clean and maintain.
