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.
