Corian® Solid surface
Corian® Solid Surface is a beautiful, versatile, composite material made from a blend of natural minerals and pure acrylic polymer.
Corian® is a leading edge solid surface that stays elegant, distinctive, hygienic and durable whether specified for interiors or exteriors, and is a peerless choice for a surprisingly broad spectrum of vertical and horizontal applications across residential, public, healthcare and commercial environments.
The beautiful purity of Corian® can also be thermoformed, engraved, seamlessly joined or backlit, offering designers the scope to experiment with luminosity and form. Still further dimensionality can come with engraved, bespoke designs creating beautifully tactile surface texture and pattern.
Corian® Solid Surface – graceful but tough; innovative but practical; seamless but formable.
Corian® stays looking good and resists impact from nicks and cuts that occur with daily wear and tear.
Corian® is non-porous and very hygienic. Its smooth impenetrable surface means bacteria and mould have nowhere to take root.
Easy to clean
Marks and stains stay on the surface and can easily be removed.
Corian® cannot delaminate, the joints are seamless and fluids cannot penetrate. It also comes with a 10-year warranty backed by DuPont, a company with over 50 years of proven solid surface expertise.
Colour-coordinated Joint Adhesive bonds Corian® Solid Surface with inconspicuous seams. This results in a smooth, seamless surface allowing large designs fashioned from a single element.
Corian® surfaces are renewable and inherently environmentally friendly. Even heavy stains and scratches can be erased without a trace simply by rubbing with household cleaner.
Corian® in full colour
Corian® offers one of the widest selection of colours available in contemporary surfacing.
Our palette includes every shade of white and neutral, earthy hues, dark and black tones, and bold, saturated solids.
Many of these offer striking aesthetic features such as veining, translucency and metallic flecks.
There are 103 colours to design with in the Corian® Solid Surface Colour Portfolio, 65 of which are suitable for kitchen worksurfaces.
Corian® DeepColour™ Technology
Corian® DeepColour™ Technology builds in even more durability for darker and more intense surfaces, delivering improved wear performance and easier thermoforming, seaming and finishing. This inspires designers, architects and fabricators to create more with richer, darker solid surface colours.
Corian® translucent colours create beautiful, atmospheric, glowing environments. They can illuminate furniture or abstract shapes to add definition and drama, or make objects appear to float weightlessly, or even be used to pick out and emphasise a carved design or a company logo – the creative scope is unlimited.
Ahead of the curve
Beautiful, seamless, pure solid surfaces don’t have to be flat.
Flexible when heated, Corian® can be thermoformed into a multitude of 2D and 3D shapes with perfectly rounded or facetted edges.
From fluid curves to crisp angles, Corian® will bring dramatic, sensual individuality and style to your design and retain the seamless fluidity that gives the impression of a surface carved from a single element.
More than a trend, hygienic, seamless materials have become an absolute necessity and even a legal requirement for many commercial environments and of course, hygiene is always desirable for domestic spaces.
Corian® is perfect for this: non-porous and easy to clean, its composition makes it the ideal material for surfaces and spaces where hygiene is critical. Corian® Solid Surface does not promote the growth of mould and mildew reducing the risk of cross-infection and cross-contamination, when properly cleaned.
This all makes Corian® the optimum hygiene solution for healthcare environments, schools, food preparation facilities, hospitality and office spaces, as well as residential kitchens.
Its hygienic performance has also been certified by institutions like NSF International as NSF/ANSI Standard 51 Certified for food contact, the highest level, for all food types in commercial food preparation.
