Benefits of Using Corian in Domestic and Commercial Environments

Corian was developed for one purpose; to create a practical material for living and working. Since its introduction by DuPont™ in 1967, Corian has proven itself to be remarkably durable; a versatile material that is easy to live with in both domestic and commercial environments.

Uses for Corian

With innovative designs and an enduring color palette, DuPont™ Corian® can make all of your domestic or commercial design aspirations come true… From kitchen countertops and splashbacks, to sinks, to baths, to shower trays and accessories in the home, and even more on top in a commercial environment… counters, receptions, shelves, clinical environments and even building cladding.

Corian is the original solid surface and is created to last a lifetime. It is a unique blend of minerals and acrylic which creates a solid surface that can be shaped to meet any design or dimension.


The resilience of Corian comes from the fine qualities of minerals and acrylics. Its non-porous surface prevents dirt and stains from penetrating the material avoiding marks and stains.

Light scratches can be erased without a trace simply by using a Corian cleaning solution; just a little effort will soon return the surface of Corian to mint condition. Colour and patterns run all the way through Corian and cannot wear off.

Working with Corian

Originally supplied in sheets, Corian can be fabricated with conventional woodworking tools into virtually any design by a registered Corian fabricator.  Engrave it, curve it, form it; with the versatility of a DuPont™ Corian solid surface, you can create the breathtaking surface textures your designs call for.

Imagery on Corian

You can also bring imagery to life in your designs. With the use of an exciting process called dye sublimation, intricate images can even be embedded into DuPont™ Corian solid surfaces.


Corian has strong domestic and commercial hygiene qualities as it is nonporous; its joints are seamless and its smooth surface does not allow liquids to penetrate making it easy to clean. Bacteria and mould have nowhere to take root; when Corian looks clean, it really is clean and is as well suited in a clinical environment as it is in home.

In summary

Put simply, Corian can be your solution for everything! Its versatility of design and structure, along with its huge range of colour possibilities means there is a unique product opportunity for everyone; all backed by a 10 year warranty when installed by a licensed Corian fabricator.
