Using a manufacturing process the brand calls DeepColour Technology, DuPont has developed the material to improve its durability, and make it easier to thermoform and seam.
This improved technique allowed the brand to add darker and more intense colours to the range of surface finishes.
Corian is a material that can be moulded into any shape. It is commonly used for architectural and interior applications, such as sculptural cladding or kitchen and bathroom surfaces, in commercial, residential and public space projects.
Deep Nocturne is solid black, Deep Anthracite features flecks of silver, Deep Black Quartz is speckled with ivory and Deep Night Sky includes translucent particles.
These colours are now available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Further details about the latest range can be found on the Corian website.

DuPont Corian introduces the DeepColour Technology
Industry, architects, designers and consumers looking for high-performance, elegant, reliable, hygienic surfacing solutions in dark colours for their products, projects, creations and homes, now have a new possibility.
Within their multi-year growth initiative "Endless Evolution", DuPont are setting once again a new, superior standard in advanced surfacing materials for interior design and architecture: the research and development laboratories of DuPont have developed an innovative manufacturing solution called DeepColour Technology (a patent pending invention) enabling the creation of dark solid surfaces which offer deeper, more intense and durable colour, improved wear performance and easier thermoforming, seaming and finishing.
The DeepColour Technology has been used by DuPont to produce four black tones:
» DuPont Corian Deep Nocturne, a classic jet black, a super-versatile solid black;
» DuPont Corian Deep Anthracite, a lustrous black immersed with minute flecks of silver.
» DuPont Corian Deep Black Quartz, an infinite black landscape offset by a vivid array of ivory specks;
» DuPont Corian Deep Night Sky, a midnight black with a galaxy of translucent particles.
The four colours of DuPont Corian made with DeepColour Technology are going to be commercially available in Europe, Middle East and Africa as of 1 February 2014.
"In summer 2013, we launched the Endless Evolution initiative for DuPont Corian, introducing new marketing tools and on-line services for both industry, specifiers and consumers. Now we present the DeepColour Technology, a science and technology based innovation applied to the dark colours of DuPont Corian solid surfaces. We use it to make four black tones with an enhanced combination of beauty and functionality. The Endless Evolution initiative and its generation of new products are a further, clear demonstration of our strong commitment to the market of solid surfaces, to the competitiveness of all our customers and to the satisfaction of end users," says Jean-Yves Bach, DuPont Building Innovations, Europe Middle-East and Africa, business director.
"DuPont Corian solid surfaces are deeply changing interior design and architecture, due to their special mix of properties and performance. Through the DeepColour Technology, we propose a superior, solution - in terms of fabrication, aesthetics and functionality - among advanced surfacing materials in dark colours. With this technology, we are going to provide new, versatile solutions to all those who are looking for modern surfacing materials in dark colours. And thanks to the versatility of this technology, we will soon propose other colours, always featuring a renewed mix of functionality and beauty, delivering the innovation promise behind our Endless Evolution program," says Eddy Verschueren, DuPont Building Innovations, Global Technical Manager for DuPont Corian.
