Bench protectors

Thermo Scientific Surface Protectors can help make your lab a safer place. 
Thermo Scientific Versi-Dry bench protectors quickly absorb and contain spills and cushion breakable labware. Use Versi-Dry material as a bench protector, shelf liner, cabinet liner or for wiping up isolated spills. The skid-resistant polyethylene backing protects your benchtop and other lab surfaces from damage and contamination caused by liquid drips and spills. The cloth-like top layer is long lasting and will not fall apart, even when wet. Thermo Scientific Nalgene CleanSheets are made of 0.125" (3.2mm) thick closed-cell polyethylene foam and can be used as a bench, drawer or sink liner or as a titration background. CleanSheets provide cushioning and non-absorbent liquid barrier protection.
