Corian the original Solid Surface.
This excellent material is the original solid surface; DuPont invented it in 1965 making it nearly 50 years old. They have however moved with the times and are still market leaders throughout Europe and the US. It is 12 mm thick and made up of an acrylic resin and natural mineral called Aluminium Trihydrate, which accounts for up to 70% of the entire sheet. This mineral is a bi-product of Aluminium production, so even before the material starts its life it’s helping the environment, making it the ideal choice for anyone looking for a more ecologically sustainable product. It’s manufactured in the US, China and South Korea in large factories that produce solid surface sheets in a continuous production line, before they are machined to size, sanded and packaged.
What size are the Sheets?
Standard dimensions of the 12mm sheets are 760 mm x 3680 mm, although Glacier White Corian is also available in a wider sheet measuring 910mm x 3680mm. In some select colours they offer thinner sheets measuring 6mm x 760mm x 2490mm. Panels are joined with a special adhesive formulated by DuPont to create a seamless and near invisible joint. With the use of our GET-I thermoforming oven we are able to bend the material to any three dimensional shape, and are even able to sublimate images onto the surface.
Also on offer are a vast array of standard sinks in their catalogue made from Solid Surface; these are suitable for use in both kitchens and bathrooms. However, if you can’t find a sink you like, or are simply looking for something a little different, we can make you a bespoke one to your exact dimensions and design.
We make everything from this amazing material, from worktops and dining tables to baths and showers. We pride ourselves on being one of the top fabricators in the UK and Europe, so if you are thinking of using Corian for your next project please get in contact with us via the Contacts Page.
With over 100 different colours it can be a bit of a minefield when it comes to choosing what you want, so have a look at the colour brochures, then email us your sample request along with your address details and we will arrange to have them shipped out to you first class.
There can be only one…
And on a final note, you may sometimes see Corian spelt incorrectly such as korion, corrian and corion to name but a few of the misspellings I’ve seen. Don’t forget there is only one way to spell this amazing Solid Surface and that is Corian. Be aware of imitations!
