What is Corian®?
Corian® is a unique solid surface material made from an advanced blend of natural minerals and acrylic polymer. Since it’s creation 35 years ago, Corian® has proven itself to be a remarkably durable, versatile material that’s easy to live with in both residential and commercial environments. Today, Corian® is used for kitchen countertops, vanities, and shower surrounds, as well as wall cladding, toilet partitions, signage, elevator cladding and much more!
A sheet of Corian® is like canvas for your imagination. After all, you can do nearly anything with it. Rout it. Carve it. Sandblast it. Thermoform it. Stack it. Backlight it. Even inlay virtually any other material, like wood, tile, metal or other colors of Corian®. With seamless backsplashes and inline sinks, the design options are unparalleled. And with over 100 colors to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect shade.
Corian® 1/2″ sheets are available in 2 sizes: a standard sheet (1/2” x 30” x 144”) and a half sheet (1/2” x 30” x 72”). Some colors are also available in 1/4” or 3/4” thicknesses, or 36.6” widths.
With over 130 colors, three finishes, and special touches like inlays, coved backsplashes, and edge treatments, Corian® is a designer’s dream material.
The versatility of Corian® adds to its appeal. You can cut it, carve it, rout it, drill it, sculpt it, bend it, thermoform it, backlight it… if you can imagine it; chances are you can create it with Corian®.
Easy to Work With
Corian® offers design versatility, function, and durability far beyond the scope of conventional materials; yet Corian® surfaces can be fabricated with traditional tools and techniques.
Corian® survives the impacts, nicks and cuts that mar most surfaces. It lasts a long, long time, postponing the need for costly tear-out and replacement.
Stain-Resistant & Easy to Clean
Because Corian® is nonporous, liquids and stains can’t penetrate. Soapy water can clean most dirt and residue so it’s easy to clean, whatever the spill.
Corian® can be restored to its original state using a green Scotch-Brite® pad and an ordinary abrasive cleaner. More severe damage can even be repaired on-site.
Unlike tile or wood, Corian® has no visible pores or voids so it does not promote the growth of mold, mildew or bacteria. When Corian® looks clean, it really is.
Inert, Non-Toxic and Hypoallergenic
Corian® doesn’t react with other chemicals or elements, and is non-toxic and hypoallergenic in normal room temperatures.
These sinks come in several styles and colors, and can be sub-mounted to create the seamless look that everyone loves
