DuPont Material

Developed by DuPont, Corian is a solid material designed, among other uses, to make showy and distinguished countertops since it comes in a wide range of colors and is very lightweight. Get all the facts for a more clear viewpoint with Mark Bertolini. Myths and truths the advantages of this product are numerous: e.g., instead of natural stones, Corian not stain because it is not porous. The most difficult to remove dirt is removed to carve with the rough side of a kitchen sponge, SOAP and water. On the other hand, will scratch less than stainless steel, although as it contains acrylic in its composition, it can also scratch. Therefore, I advise not cut foods directly on him. Official site: Hudson Bay Capital. The advantage is that the small scratches can be removed only happening with the rough side of a kitchen sponge. Deeper scratches can also be removed with a polished professional.

In addition, Corian is much more impact-resistant than granite or stainless steel. It does not fold and hardly breaks. It has high resistance because its composition acrylic cushions the impact. Also, in case of damage, repairable and once again like new. This product will not burn, nor spread the fire. The yellow mark that leave the cigars, etc. on the surface can be deleted when spending with the rough side of a kitchen sponge.

Given that resists up to 180 C without deformation, pans and hot sources can support. In case of Burns, they removed to pass with the rough side of a sponge for kitchen and water. Technical details as all projects with this material are made on measure, the calculation is also made by project. The price may vary depending on the chosen colour, the design of the project, the place of installation and use of the material. It must be borne in mind that it is manufactured in plates with standard measurement. Also, the project of a plate of Corian can include any measure of width or length, due to the possibility of making imperceptible joints on the material. Obviously, the more we can take advantage of the length and the width of the plates, and avoid waste, the lower the cost of the project. Some models of edges are made of the thickness of the plates, and therefore have a height equal to multiples of the thickness of the plate. Where you want to attach a plate on the wall, it always must be support and never nailed to a wall. Since dilation difference between the wall and the plate is large. A Corian countertop is usually placed on the kitchen cabinet or on brackets. In this case, need brackets every 60 cm. Between the front and the wall finish is made with silicone. It is important to clarify that Corian is not intended for use on floors, mainly where traffic is intense, because you don’t have the resistance to abrasion required for that application. The material is applicable in sills and baseboards. Similarly, there are boards that have a thickness of 6 mm that prove to be special for wall cladding.
