Why should I buy a SciMatCo metal-free acid cabinet?
SciMatCo acid cabinets are manufactured without using any metal
components. Acids readily oxidize metal—SciMatCo cabinets contain no
metal. Even if metal is coated or painted, a single scratch will break
the protected surface and the oxidation begins to spread rapidly.
The pictures below depict a metal, epoxy-coated acid cabinet. The cabinet is less than 3 years old.
Extensive Cabinet Interior Damage
SciMatCo Acid Cabinets are constructed of multi-ply, high density plywood (not particleboard). The plywood is covered with chemical-resistant paint. Plywood (not particleboard) will not be attacked by acids. This condition cannot exist in a SciMatCo Acid Cabinet
