I’ll confess that I had never heard of Corian before starting work for my current company. I’ll confess that I’m not a massive fan of kitchens, so maybe I’ll be forgiven. After all, a kitchen worktop was either clean or not for me, and I never gave it much thought.
You’re probably familiar with timber, laminated, and granite worktops; they’re self-explanatory. Wood is made of, well, wood. And on and on! You may want to check out PREMIUM WORKTOPS DIRECT LTD – Caesarstone Worktops for more.
The dark horse of Corian, a futuristic man-made material that is steadily making its way through everything from walls to floors, from guitar necks (the white thing where the strings go) to, of course, kitchen worktops, is stalking the scene.
So, let’s take a closer look at this space-age substance, a synthetic stone that could be an excellent kitchen solution.
DuPont’s Corian strong surfacing substance is known by its brand name. It’s made up of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate, and it’s basically a synthetic rock with some amazing properties.
Corian® is easy to clean and NSF/ANSI 51 certified for food touch, which is why it has become such a common option for kitchen worktops. Corian® is a non-porous material that does not absorb stains. Corian® also resists the growth of mould, mildew, and bacteria when properly washed.
You can also get Corian sinks, which are sinks that fit in beautifully with your worktop, giving your kitchen clean sleak lines and less nooks for bacteria and dirt to gather in.
It’s also a’solid-surface’ material, which is jargon for saying that it’s the same texture, colour, and texture throughout. This ensures that it can be quickly polished out if it gets scratched. You can also expand your worktops and repair parts if your bad worktop sustains a serious injury.
