What is Corian?
Corian is the original solid surface material. Created to last a lifetime it is a unique blend of minerals and acrylic which creates a stone-hard surface that can be shaped to meet any design or dimension.
Corian worktops and shapes fall under the DuPont 10 year Limited Installed Warranty, when the product is used, fabricated and installed according to the guidelines and requirements set forward by DuPont Corian.
As well as Corian worktops we also supplies Corian sinks and basins, edging strips and other features to help make sure that your Corian installation is as seamless as the material itself.
The inherent resilience of Corian comes from the fine qualities of minerals and acrylics.
