Everything you need to know about Corian and Corian countertops…
What is Corian?
Corian is a brand name for a material which was invented in the 1960s by scientists at the Dupont company, who were also responsible for such iconic substances as nylon and Lycra. It is made from reconstituted natural materials that have been reinforced by acrylic resins to a ratio of around 2/3 mineral compound to 1/3 resin. This creates slabs that are solid and non-porous throughout. Hard wearing work surfaces that don’t compromise on a high-end elegant finish.
Why use Corian?
Corian is non-porous which means bacteria has nowhere to hide. When a Corian worktop is cleaned it is incredibly hygienic. That is why Corian is a feature of many hospitals, health centres and other public arenas where wellbeing is a priority.
Its durability, makes it suitable for many applications and it is not only used for Corian kitchen worktops but in commercial settings too.
Modern seamless design
