What is solid surface worktop?

Corian® is the original solid surface material and below explains what it is

Created to last a lifetime it is a unique blend of minerals and acrylic which creates a stone-hard surface that can be shaped to meet any design or dimension.             

Corian® is an advanced composite of natural minerals and pure acrylic polymer.              


Features and Benefits 

The inherent resilience of Corian® comes from the fine qualities of minerals and acrylics.
Feature: Its non-porous surface prevents dirt and stains from penetrating the material. Benefit: Marks and stains stay on the surface and can easily be removed with a Scotchbrite® pad and household cleaner.    


Corian® is exceptionally resistant to high temperatures.

Feature: Even cigarette burns or marks left by boiling hot pans are only superficial and can be quickly removed. Benefit: heavy stains and scratches can be erased without a trace simply by rubbing with household cleaner. Just a little effort will soon return the surface of Corian® to mint condition.         

Corian® is solid and homogeneous
Feature: Colour and patterns run all the way through and cannot wear off. Benefit: Developed for one purpose; to create a practical material for living. Since its introduction in 1967, Corian® has proven itself to be remarkably durable, a versatile material that is easy to live with in both domestic and commercial environments.

Corian® offers design versatility, function and durability.

Originally supplied in sheets and shapes, Corian® can be fabricated with conventional woodworking tools into virtually any design.          


Corian® surfaces are hygienic.

Feature: Corian® is non-porous. Benefit: Its smooth surface does not allow liquids to penetrate and that makes it easy to clean. Bacteria and mould have nowhere to take root. When Corian® looks clean, it really is clean.

Corian® surfaces are renewable.

Feature: Damages can usually be repaired with ordinary abrasive cleaners and a scouring pad. Benefit: Renewability and durability make Corian® inherently environmentally friendly.              

Corian® is an inert, nontoxic, chemically unreactive, hypoallergenic material.

Feature: At normal room temperature, no gasses are given off from Corian®. Even when exposed to direct flame, Corian® is one of the least toxic materials available. Benefit: This means that Corian® can be used for sensitive applications such as museum archival storage and display cases, for wall and work surfaces in hospital operating rooms and intensive care facilities, on ships and ferries.
