What is Corian?
Corian is an innovative man-made solid surface material manufactured from a mixture of acrylic polymers and minerals, with added colourants. Created by DuPont in 1967, by DuPont chemist Donald Slocum. Corian was initially on the market in 1971, Houstan, Texas, in one colour. Corian is now manufactured in over 100 colours. In 2013, DuPont introduced its Endless Evolution initiative providing higher scratch resistance and deeper, darker colors
Corians innovative designs and colour palette of vivid, veined and bold surfaces are virtually seamless and inconspicuous. Bonded together with a colour-matching joint adhesive, Corians smooth surface cannot delaminate, and is it is non-porous, liquids cannot penetrate the surface making is resistant to mold and bacteria. Corian asserts that heavy stains and scratches can be completely erased with Scotchbrite and a household cleaner.
The latest technological advancements with this material allow thermoformable flexibility when heated. Corian can be reshaped without compromise, carved, and sanded, making it a highly customisable material. Corian Solid Surfaces can be implemented in a multitude of private and commercial applications including modern interiors, office, education, student accommodation, retail, clinical and hospitality projects.
