What is Corian® made of?
Corian® countertops, created by Dupont™, are composed of an innovative solid surfacing material that allows greater functionality and versatility than other traditional solid surface materials. Corian® is the perfect material for homeowners who want complete control over the location, appearance, and function of their counter. Corian® can be cut, drilled, routed, bent, sculpted, and even approached like a high quality wood. Corian’s® constantly expanding color palette currently includes over 100 different colors.
Is Corian® a stain-resistant surface?
Corian® Countertops are extremely stain-resistant. Since Corian® is a non-porous material, stains can’t penetrate its surface. This also makes it cleaning and maintenance a breeze. Another benefit to Corian® is that it will never require sealing.
Is Corian® resistant to heat?
Even though Corian® is capable of remaining undamaged in temperatures of up to 212ºF (100ºC), we advise against placing a hot pot directly on the surface or exposing it to other sources of high heat such as a flame. In the event that your counter is damaged by heat, usually it can be repaired. To prevent your Corian® Countertops from this type of damage, use a hot pad or a trivet to protect the surface from hot pans, or heated appliances.
How do I go about cleaning Corian®?
Corian® Countertops are quick and simple to clean. All you need for daily care of your Corian® counter on a daily basis is soapy water and a mild ammonia-based cleaner. Minor scratches, scuffs, burns or even discoloration are also usually very easy to repair. For major damages, we ask that you contact us at Express Countertops or visit our Corian® specific Care & Maintenance section.
Does Corian® require additional sealing?
Corian® Countertops require no sealing because of their non-porous nature. This is a distinct advantage over natural stones like Granite. Corian® is an elegantly beautiful material and practically maintenance-free surface that you will certainly enjoy for many, many years to come.
