From Julie & Janet:

We like this affordable and attractive countertop material discovered on Grassroots Modern. Similar to Richlite or Paperstone, which mimic the look of slate or soapstone, Trespa TopLab is used in scientific and medical laboratories. Made of an epoxy resin composite (thermoset resins with cellulose fiber reinforcement), TopLab countertops are exceptionally stain-resistant and durable. Another huge advantage is the cost: approximately $15 per square foot (about $20 per square foot with shipping). Several different colors are offered, including white and silver gray; brochures and samples are available through Trespa.
