Welome to the world of Corian…

Welome to the world of Corian…

Posted by Jennifer | November 15, 2014

Corian is the brand name for a solid surface material,created by DuPont in 1967.

The original solid surface material which was specifically designed as a work surface.Corian began its journey as an elegant,high performance alternative to conventional surface in the home.With its balance of beauty,innovative design, and durable qualities,it soon became an inspiration for the consumer,designers, architects and professionals all over the world,that this material had endless potential and a multitude of other applications both functional and decorative.

By exploring the special qualities of Corians translucency,vibrancy of colour, extraordinary thermoformability, creative innovations have been made and exciting ideas incorporating this versatile material.

DuPont Corian is an advanced blend of natural minerals and pure acrylic polymer.

Corian is non porous making it resistant to stains and bacteria. Corian is manufactured in three thicknesses,6 millimetres(0.24in),12 millimetres(0.47),and 19 millimetres(0.75).Cross section cuts shows consistent colour particulate patterning evenly distributed through the material.Nicks and scratches can be buffed out with with a Scotch-brite pad or a orbital sander.In the fabrication process joints can be made invisible by joining the relevant pieces with with Corians own colour-matched two part proxy. The pieces are clamped together tightly together in order to express any excess adhesive. After the adhesive dries,the area is sanded down and polished to create a seamless joint,with this making virtually any impression of any surface area can be made from a single piece of Corian.Thermoformable Corian can be thermoformed at controlled temperatures in to various 2D and 3D designs.

The DuPont Corian colour palette comes in a variety of hues,tones and colours,bright bold saturated solids,subtle whites and neutrals,pastels,earthy hues,black and moody darks and custom made colours.Many of the colours of Corian are available in stunning effects, veining,translucency,or various degrees of graining. A ten year manufacturers limited warranty backed by DuPont also works with designers,artists,architects and industry sector experts to offer the largest,most versatile selection of colours available in contemporary surfacing.

DuPont Corian  solid surface is easy to clean and is NSF/ANS 51 certified for food contact.

Corian is non porous,stains do not penetrate the surface.With proper cleaning Corian  also resists the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria.Although liquids cannot penetrate Corian, It is best to wipe up spills as soon as possible as they occur,generally with a damp micro fibre cloth used with a standard household kitchen spray,should  remove most stains,always use a circular motion for Worktops and sinks.To prevent heat marks and scorching always use a heat protection pad with a trivet(with rubber feet),also a protective sink mat for hot cookware, Or leave cookware to cool first on the hob,never put hot pans particularly cast iron,directly on to Corian worktop or sink.Such heat can damage any surface,also pouring boiling water and liquids directly into the sink without turning the cold tap on could  damage Corian. Always use the correct size pan on the burner and place it centrally,on a overhanging pan can scorch surrounding surfaces.Like all materials DuPont Corian will develop slight abrasion marks in normal daily use.Never cut or chop on Corian, it will score the work surface,use a chopping board.Dark heavily pigmented  colours will show scratches ,dust and ordinary wear and tear more readily than lighter textured colours. Accidental spillage of strong chemicals eg.(paint stripper,brush cleaners,metal cleaners,oven cleaners,cleaners containing methylene chloride, acid drain cleaner and acetone based remover etc),should be flushed with water. Undetected or prolonged exposure to chemicals may damage the surface.

Imagine a kitchen where colours and textures flow seamlessly together,and further high performing Corian products,such as sinks and splashback ,can be perfectly integrated to create a sleek appearance of a single solid surface. With a coved splashback there are no traps to collect dirt and moisture. Corian also works brilliantly together with such materials as stainless steel, wood and glass.

When making a Corian kitchen sink part of the kitchen design, there’s a sensuously and practical look, durable, no porous and easy to maintain. Corian kitchen sinks are available in small single sink, large single bowl sink & double bowl sink. All are functional, elegant and contemporary and modern in style.

DuPont Coriander lends itself to almost any kitchen design. It’s permits fusion of sinks, work surface and wall panels without visible seems, offering solutions that are ash ethically, harmonious and functional valuable, with hygiene as a powerful advantage in today’s world.
