Much more than just a countertop.
In 1967 DuPont scientists created a new category of surfacing that would revolutionize the countertop industry. Following its initial introduction as a commercial bath product, DuPont soon discovered that Corian® solid surfacing was an ideal material for kitchen countertops. Over the years, Corian® has earned the trust and respect of kitchen and bath professionals as a material that will stand up to the challenges of day-to-day living. However, Corian® is much more than a countertop. Today, you will find Corian® used in a wide variety of residential and commercial applications including wall cladding, windowsills, door thresholds, moldings, toilet partitions, shower surrounds, signage, furniture, display cases, elevator cladding, lighting fixtures, trash receptacles as well as specialty products such as sculptures, serving plates, vases and much, much more.
Applications are limitless.
While most widely known as a kitchen or vanity countertop material, Corian® is one of the most versatile materials that you will find on the market today. Unlike any other type of material, the special method used when bonding Corian® creates a smooth, apparently seamless surface, allowing the creation of large areas that appear to have been fashioned from a single piece. This homogenous look and feel means that you can fulfill your most creative design visions without compromise. And designers are increasingly discovering that Corian® is a material with huge design potential; available in over 100 colors, Corian® can be routed, drilled, carved, sandblasted, sculpted, inlaid, back-lit, heated and formed into shapes like columns or worked like fine wood to create intricate moldings. Its applications are limitless and like designers who push the boundaries of design, DuPont™ continues to explore the possibilities of what this material can do, by researching and developing new technologies that will allow Corian® to evolve and expand.
Corian® is all about color.
For over 45 years DuPont™ Corian® has been leading the solid surfacing industry with innovative colors and aesthetics. Working with internationally recognized color experts and world renowned architects and designers, DuPont continues to introduce fresh new colors and aesthetics into their palette each year according to the emerging trends. Color and aesthetic leadership is a major part of the global Corian® business strategy and its what sets Corian® apart from it's competitors.

DuPont™ Corian® Metallic Colors
The eleven metallic colors of DuPont™ Corian® feature a unique design aesthetic that allows designers to achieve visual texture and light play with a solid surface product. The metal flakes in the sheet are at a slight angle to the surface, therefore, the reflectivity of the sheet varies with orientation. This varying appearance is what allows the surface of the countertop (or the edges) to appear lighter or darker depending on the viewing angle of the observer. Realizing the full potential of these surfaces as well as setting realistic expectations for the end user, requires special consideration when designing and fabricating these colors.
This material can be an infinite source of inspiration to designers who wish to create special visual effects such as the integration of logos or decorative patterns [alternating stripes, parquet, checkerboard, spirals, etc...] which can be created by assembling a surface from pieces with varying orientations. The varying orientations of the metallic flakes interact differently with the light and as the observer moves relative to the surface, different aspects of the design will appear and disappear, creating a uniquely dynamic surface.
The Corian® metallic colors (especially Azurite, Bronzite, Copperite, Olivite and Silverite) have the greatest degree of directionality and reflectivity [much stronger than the Lustra Series of Anthracite] and we recommend that you contact our Corian® Fabrication Manager to discuss the overall layout of the design along with the desired visual effects, prior to selecting these colors.
