why are working tables and shelves in chemistry lab covered with tiles and not wood or metal

Dear Student, There are various harmful chemicals used in a chemistry lab. They may have a corrosive action on the wood. They may react with the metal and may produce hazardous gases which can cause harm to us. These chemicals do not react with tiles. Therefore, tiles is used on table and shelves of chemistry lab. Regards,
