X-Flo Fume Cabinets

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.

Main areas of Application:

  • Chemical Laboratories
  • Industrial laboratories

The specially formulated White Polypropylene which is used has been specially developed for laboratory applications. This material has the following features:

  • Excellent corrosion resistance across a broad range of media
