Product Overview

Corian is a brand of solid surface material that was developed by DuPont and is used for countertops, vanity tops, and backsplashes when a natural stone is not desired.  It is a man made material which consists of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Corian countertops are often chosen for modern or trendy spaces.

Color and Design Options

The color palette available from DuPont for their Corian countertops includes many colors.  The color and patterning is consistent, which makes it a popular choice for very modern interiors.  The unique way that light reflects off the color of Corian countertops compliments other design elements such as stainless steel and glass.

Another feature of Corian countertops is a virtually seamless joint.  It’s made by joining pieces together with a two-part acrylic epoxy that is color matched to the surface and clamping them together tightly.  Once the epoxy dries, it is sanded and polished for a joint that is almost seamless.

Things to Consider . . .

When considering a Corian countertop for your kitchen or bathroom, it is important to remember that direct heat and sharp objects can damage the surface so the use of cutting boards is highly recommended.  A matte finish is also much less likely to show scratches and dings than a high-gloss surface. Whether its Natural Stone, which comes in thousands of colors & patterns and can give you a one of a kind look, or Corian with its rainbow of available colors & durability that your prefer, the experienced designers and architects at Graniterra can help you find a countertop that suits your existing design or new remodel and we provide full installation services.  Contact Graniterra for more information on our available Corian countertops or check out our natural stone portfolio to see our other options.
