What is Corian®?

Corian® is the original solid surface material. 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 and is backed by DuPont™ with a 10 year Limited Installed Warranty.

High Resilience

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


Corian® solid surface worktops are hygenic. 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® is an inert, non-toxic, chemically unreactive, hypoallergenic material. 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. 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.


Corian® surfaces are renewable and inherently environmentally friendly. 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. Corian® Colours and patterns run all the way through and cannot wear off. Developed 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® cannot delaminate. This means that joints are inconspicuous and fluids cannot penetrate.


Corian® keeps its good looks, is hard-wearing and survives the impact nicks and cuts that can occur with daily wear and tear.


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.


Color-coordinated Joint Adhesive bonds Corian® solid surface with inconspicuous seams. This results in a smooth surface that enables you to create large designs fashioned from a single element. The seamless look of integrated Corian® countertops, sinks, and coved backsplashes also means there are no crevices to trap dirt and bacteria.


The refined colors of DuPont ™ Corian® make up a creative and inspired palette for choices of homogeneous colors, translucent and complex in textures and shades. You can choose a color as the basis for designing a fabric or a more harmonious composition of more colors.

Environmentally friendly

Corian® surfaces are renewable. Damages can usually be repaired with ordinary abrasive cleaners and a scouring pad. Renewability and durability make Corian® inherently environmentally friendly.
