RESISTANT

Since its introduction in 1967, DuPont™ Corian ® has proved itself to be a remarkably durable material that is easy

to live with. It cannot delaminate and stands up well to daily wear and tear.

It resists most of the impacts, nicks and cuts that occur in heavy traffic areas. Corian ® has been tested for its

mechanical, thermal, electrical and other surface properties.

HYGIENIC

DuPont™ Corian ® is a non-porous material. It is solid through its entire

thickness and can be fabricated with inconspicuous seams, rendering its

surface hygienic. DuPont™ Corian ® surfaces do not support the growth

of bacteria or fungi. Corian ® has been certified by an independent laboratory

as a hygienic material according to the international norm DIN EN ISO 846.

REPAIRABLE

Surfaces in DuPont™ Corian ® are renewable, meaning they can be fully

restored with ordinary mild abrasive cleansers and a scouring pad. Cigarette

burns, for example, can be easily removed in this way. Damage caused by

abuse can usually be repaired on site without having to completely replace the material.

NON -TOXIC

DuPont™ Corian ® is an inert and nontoxic material. Under normal temperature

conditions, it does not emit gases. When burned, it releases mainly Carbon

Oxides and the smoke generated is optically light and does not contain toxic

halogenated gases. Because of these properties, Corian ® is used in public

areas and for sensitive applications such as airport check-in counters, walls and

work surfaces in hospitals and hotels.

SOLID

Colours and patterns run through the entire thickness of the material and

cannot wear away. DuPont™ Corian ® is a solid material and cannot delaminate.

INCONSPICUOUS JOINTS

The applications for DuPont™ Corian ® are limited only by your own imagination.

Pieces of Corian ® can be glued together inconspicuously to create a seamless

look, giving virtually unlimited design possibilities for surfaces. Long counters,

for example, can be easily made in pieces in a workshop and then joined

together at the installation site. Edges can be built up to look thicker.

THERMOFORMABLE

DuPont™ Corian ® can be thermoformed in wooden or metal moulds at controlled

temperatures in order to create various 2D and 3D design objects. Embossing

effects can also be created using the Bas Relief technique.

TRANSLUCENT

The translucency of DuPont™ Corian ® is especially striking in the lighter colours

as well as with thinner sheets. Many designers are now using the material

to create lamps or lighting effects in various applications. The colour family,

called the Illumination Series, consists of 6 colours in 6 mm and 12.3 mm sheets

featuring enhanced translucency to be used for creating special lighting effects.

WORKABLE LIKE WOOD

DuPont™ Corian ® can be worked like hardwood and using similar tools. Most

DuPont™ Corian ® fabricators originally trained as carpenters.

COLOURFUL

The colours of Corian ® allow for an almost unlimited working palette. You

can choose a single colour; a neutral basis for design; or experiment with eyecatching

harmonies. Corian ® can also be used as inlays, accents, or as a versatile

complement to other materials like metal, wood, stone, etc.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

DuPont™ Corian ® is manufactured in compliance with strict standards in order

to limit waste and energy consumption at all stages of the production process.

Both the material itself and the adhesives and sealants used to install

it are GREEN GUARD Indoor AirQuality Certified ® as producing low VOC

emissions.

Seamlessness as an agent of liberty

What is Corian ?

DuPont™ Corian ® is a solid, non-porous, homogeneous surfacing material composed of ± 1/3 acrylic resin (also known as PolyMethyl

MethAcrylate or PMMA) and ± 2/3 natural minerals. The main mineral is Aluminium TriHydrate(ATH) derived from bauxite, an ore from

which aluminium is produced.
