DuPont™ Corian® - basic facts

April 2010 - DuPont™ Corian® solid surface ( - an exclusive product of DuPont - is an advanced composite material delivering superior levels of functionality and aesthetical performance for flat and curved surfacing applications in residential, public and commercial environments, indoor and outdoor. DuPont™ Corian® is used worldwide by thousands of architects, designers, professionals and companies to create interior design, furnishing, lighting and architectural solutions for a wide range of sectors and very differentiated applications.

• DuPont™ Corian® can be formed into virtually any shape or design a designer can mastermind – whether that's a softly rounded ergonomic desk, an intricately carved decorative pillar, or a 20-foot long reception desk .
• DuPont™ Corian® is easily shaped and fabricated: it can be modelled via thermoforming and can be worked like wood to achieve numerous decorative effects – edges can be rounded, surfaces can be engraved or sand-blasted with intricate designs, images can be transferred on the surface via sublimation technique, surface can be treated via CNC machine routing or via the controlled application of heat and pressure.
• DuPont™ Corian® is joined with inconspicuous seams, so designers are not restrained by size – massive structures appear to have been crafted from a single piece of DuPont™ Corian®.
• With over 100 colours now available, DuPont™ Corian® can fit in with any colour scheme or style of décor – from classic whites or pastel shades to ultra-modern, dramatic brights, textured or shimmering hues. If the colour desired is not available, DuPont™ Corian® also offers a custom colour service.
• DuPont™ Corian® has a unique translucency which gives the material an extra dimension when light is added, and makes it an ideal choice for lighting designs. The colour palette includes also a family of colours (called Illumination series) providing enhanced translucency.
• DuPont™ Corian® looks great alone or when combined with other materials such as natural wood, stone, glass or stainless steel.
• DuPont™ Corian® withstands a lot of wear and tear - even the heavy abuse received in high traffic commercial environments. Where scratches and cuts do occur, these are easily removable, while more serious damage can generally be repaired on-site with the minimum of inconvenience.
• Non-porous and joined with inconspicuous seams, DuPont™ Corian® is very hygienic and easy to clean. Its hygienic performances, superior to those of many conventional materials, have been certified also by German LGA QualiTest GmbH independent organization.
• The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute has designated DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces, as well as their related sealants and adhesives from DuPont, as “GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®”. The GREENGUARD certification ensures that DuPont™ Corian® comply with strict emission criteria for indoor air quality. DuPont™ Corian® has also received the GREENGUARD for Children & Schools Certification(SM), a separate product standard for low-emitting interior building materials, furnishings and finish systems used in educational environments.
• DuPont has also developed two collections of colours of DuPont™ Corian® featuring a modern aesthetic whose formulation includes up to 25% of post-industrial recycled material
• Thanks to its durability, easy maintainance and very low-VOC emissions, DuPont™ Corian® solid surface can contribute to sustainable design goals and help projects achieve LEED® credits (according to the guidelines of U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Green Building Rating System) in a variety of commercial applications.
