Polimatrix is proud to introduce the unique X-Flo Series of laboratory fume cabinets

The X-Flo Series of laboratory Fume Cabinets feature an all-Polypropylene construction which makes them ideal for Laboratory and Industrial applications where a broad range of corrosive media are present both in and outside of the fume cabinet.

The specially formulated White Polypropylene which is used has been developed for laboratory applications.

This material has the following features:

  • Excellent corrosion resistance across a broad range of media.
  • Highly stable with no effect on purity of laboratory test samples/specimens
  • Resists fading. The slight blue tint ensures the material “fades” to crisp white and not a disappointing off-white.
  • Excellent performance under artificial light for personnel comfort
  • Perfect for high purity clean lab applications

Main areas of application:

Chemical Laboratories

Industrial Laboratories

School & University Laboratories

Metal Sampling Clean Labs
