Bally Block’s Quality
Their standard finish on countertops, islands, commercial foodservice tops, workbench tops and locker bench seats is DURAKRYL 102, a proprietary urethane-based satin finish. It is food-safe, resistant to stains and most solvents, and cleans up with warm soapy water. Stubborn spills or stains can be removed with nail polish remover.
DURAKRYL 102 resists marring, is moisture resistant, and meets the test requirements of the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturing Association (KCMA). The formulation, when cured, leaves an inert film. The constituents of the cured film have been tested by an independent university laboratory and found to be non-toxic. The film is approximately 95% cured during the manufacturing process and 100% cured within two weeks of manufacture. Only inert film is present on installed tops as manufactured.
DURAKRYL 102 has been tested against many common household and industrial products. The results are listed as passed or no effect (P) and failed or moderate to severe effect (F). A moderate effect would be a softening or discoloration of the finish.
Bally Block Lamination Methods
Edge-grain butcher block is probably the most popular construction style today. Edge-grain construction is used throughout our entire line—for standard countertops, kitchen islands, commercial food service tops, professional cutting boards and industrial workbench tops. Functionally, edge-grain butcher block is less durable relative to end-grain construction, but still provides an extremely solid work surface. Of course, the beauty of butcher block is what living brings in, sandpaper takes out. Butcher block can be easily restored to its original condition.
