Corian Solid Surface range aims to promote "clean and healthy spaces"

Promotion: Corian Solid Surface range produced by the Corian Design business of DuPont is designed to ensure that surfaces such as sinks, worktops and counters are easy to clean.

Corian Solid Surface range aims to have a "seamless finish" and is made from a combination of aluminium trihydrate (ATH), pure acrylic resin (PMMA) and environmentally friendly pigments.

The material can be used for various surfaces in a variety of spaces, ranging from bathroom basins to kitchen sinks, and intends to ensure spaces can be kept "clean and healthy".

Corian Solid Surface is non-porous, which prevents dirt, mould and bacteria from entering and staining the material.

This also ensures that stains are only kept on the surface, and can be easily removed with a household cleaner, according to Corian Design.

"Corian Solid Surface paired with regular cleaning and disinfecting is the best way to eliminate bacteria and viruses from a surface," said Corian Design.

"It also has minimal impact on human health and the environment by limiting the overuse of biocides and disinfectants. It's that simple."

"The seamless look of integrated worktops, counters, sinks, and coved backsplashes made with Corian Solid Surface means there are no crevices to trap and grow mould, germs and viruses," added Corian Design.

"This simplifies cleaning, sanitising and routine maintenance."

Corian Design has recently expanded the range with eight new colours, which are informed by natural materials.

The new eight colours join the existing 90 in the Corian Solid Surface range and are intended to enable designers to have substantial design options for kitchens, cafes, bathrooms, receptions and other interiors.

The material has GreenGuard Gold and Red List Free certifications, in addition to recently achieving the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certification, which signifies "it is free from dangerous chemicals and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that pollute the air in indoor spaces".

"The Eurofins Gold certification combines the most stringent set of European regulations and voluntary imposed performance standards in terms of VOC emissions," said Corian.
