What are Corian Solid Surfaces?

Manufactured from a mixture of acrylic polymers and minerals, Corian, is an innovative solid surface material

Man-Made Surface Material

Corian is a 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

Innovative Corian

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 for seemless corian worktops, its smooth surface cannot delaminate, and 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.

Thermoformable Flexibility

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.


The 10 year product Warranty applies to interior corian worktops or decorative installations of Corian Solid Surface by certified fabricators and installation engineers. Shower trays and baths have a 2 Year product warranty.


The Corian Warranty does NOT cover damage from improper or inadequate use such as the following:
  • Outdoor use
  • physical abuse
  • chemical abuse
  • exposure to excessive heat
  • custom-made shapes
  • thermoforming
  • incorrect fabrication
  • incorrect installation
  • joint failure
  • colour variations
  • pattern variation
  • acts of God
  • Scratches
  • Wear and Tear

  • NOTE: it is strongly advised, without fail, that chopping boards, trivets and the careful use of chemical & substances advised for cleaning are applied.

    Cover in Years 1-10

    Under the warranty, DuPont will replace the cracked Corian surface shape only once (if all factors above are not the cause of damage). The DuPont Corian Surface ten year warranty is divided into 4 stages from installation:
  • Year 1-3: 100% material and labour.
  • Year 4-6: 75% material ~ 50% labour.
  • Year 7-9: 50% material ~ 25% labour.
  • Year 10: 25% material ~ 0% labour.
  • An invoice needs to be presented with the claim as proof of purchase. Claims cover only installations that remain in the original place of installation. Further details on waranties are available upon request.

    Worktops Resistances

    Heat Resistance

    Corian is heat resistant in temperatures up to 212 degrees F. Corian cannot withstand prolonged contact with hot surfaces or flames & can cause burn marks.

    Stain Resistance

    Corian has resistances to staining, however, it is susceptible, scrubbing with soft cloth and light detergent should remove most stains. Using an abrasive will dull the surface.

    Scratch Resistance

    With a Moh's scale of hardness of 2-3, Corian, does scratch easily. Matte finish of corian materials reduce scatch visibility, however, corian surfaces can be resurfaced.

    Surface Textures

    Textured finishes can be applied to any Corian surface, offering a unique approach to cladding and decor.
