Dry Ice and Thermal shock in general is not a problem because the MaxRE material is fiber reinforced, has a low thermal expansion coefficient and is not as brittle like Epoxy, ceramic or solid surface materials. The thermal expansion coefficient is found in the MaxRE brochure, Page 6, at DIN 52328, Standard requirement of 1/K, Max resistance at 20 x 10 -6. Even a thin panel of only 1/4" (6 MM) withstands thermal shock.

H2O2 is tested in 2 different concentrations for 24h's and 1h. **Test results below.

The client should provide the concentration of the Bleach they use in their particular environments or lab settings and duration of application. If it is wiped off immediately, there will be no discernible damage. Only very high concentrates of bleach and long application time, in combination, creates discoloration on Max RE solid phenolic work surfaces. In general light surfaces perform better in such cases.

Samples of the desired MaxRE thickness are available for in-house testing at Hospitals, Dental labs, WTP (Water Treatment Plants) and other facilities, to allow customers to perform a test comparing different worktop materials.
