WHAT IS CORIAN?DuPont Corian solid surface is a building surfacing material developed by the American Corporation DuPont in 1967. Since its invention, it has made a number of technological breakthroughs, most recently its new Deep Color range that’s 50% more scratch resistant and its collaboration with Powermat Technologies to create an integrated wireless charging system allowing you to charge your Iphone or Ipad on a DuPont Corian solid surface!
WHAT IT’S MADE OF?A solid, non-porous, homogenous surfacing material, DuPont Corian solid surface is composed of advanced natural minerals and pure acrylic polymer (also known as methyl methacrylate).
