Living Surfaces™ Liquid Lava™ Counter/Bar Top Technical Information

Our Liquid Lava™ panels can be used in counter top, bar top, and other similar applications. Our tiles are made up of two sheets of polycarbonate. The two sheets are combined and sealed with rigid polycarbonate, becoming a single piece. Polycarbonate is a plastic material that perfectly withstands shock or impact when applied at room temperature. Our tiles are 1/4" thick and can fit easily on top of plywood or acrylic/glass for backlit versions. Our Coarse top surface is perfect for high traffic installations and works well in counter top applications.

Our Transparent Liquid Lava™ counter tops are backlit options of our Liquid Lava™ products that provide an even more exciting effect than our standard opaque Liquid Lava™ products in your project.

Each tile is tested individually by overloading half of the surface with a load distributed which amounts to 500 kg per square meter.

The liquid within Living Surface™ Liquid Lava™ is non-toxic. Living Surfaces™ Liquid Lava™ products are patented products.



Technical Data
Thickness: 1-1/8"

Shore/Durometer: D 66/77
The hardness testing of plastics is most commonly measured by the Shore (Durometer) test. This test method measures the resistance of the plastic toward indentation. Shore Hardness is the preferred method for rubbers/elastomers.

Fire reaction: class 1

Liquids used are non-toxic and safe for all environments.

Storage
Attention should be paid to the environmental conditions which occur during installation and/or storage. Storage should also involve superimposing the tiles two by two to avoid bending of the tiles.

The tiles MUST be kept in a horizontal position during storage.

When the tiles are not installed permanently, the perimeter of the tiles are sensitive to impact blows. Move and handle with care.

The Living Surface™ Liquid Lava™ floor tiles resist temperatures up to 140
º F (60º C), however the best results are obtained at room temperatures between 50º F (10º C) and 104ºF (40º C). The tiles react normally at lower temperatures as well but are more sensible to damage and colder temperatures.



Maintenance
To obtain best results, periodically use an auto polishing metallic wax. This should be applied ONLY with a mop directly to the surface. (The tiles can be cleaned as well using common detergents found within the home as well.) Do NOT use automatic cleaning machinery and polishing wheels on the tiles. The rate of which the tiles should be cleaned depends on the amount of traffic that may occur for each installation.

Do not use solvent wax and always avoid PVC solvents and acetones. Care should be taken when the tiles butt against carpet or other flooring products which automatic cleaning machinery is used to clean. These machines can cause SERIOUS damage to the tiles and caution should be used in these installations.

Place protective pads under furniture and chair legs to protect the tile surface.



Cleaning advice
Ink, Blood, Mustard, Tomatoes, Urine –
Use diluted chlorine or hydrogen peroxide (30 volumes) and add a few drops of ammonia or alcohol vinegar. Apply to surface without rubbing and rinse thoroughly.

Rust –
Use rustproof or oxalic acid (rinse).

Paint, Rubber Marks, Ball Point Pen, Marker, Hard Oil –
Use mineral turpentine. Rub with detergents and rinse thoroughly.

Cigarette burns –
Rub slightly with a double abrasive paper. Apply an emulsion over the surface.
