Surfacing Solutions with Damage Forgiveness
DuPont Corian Design
The DuPont Corian Design business has developed a new manufacturing process and know-how called Resilience Technology, enabling the production of Corian Solid Surface featuring superior damage forgiveness, easier and quicker stain removal, and less need for maintenance. This best-in-class premium technology reduces physical damage from scratching, heat and impact, typical of daily usage in commercial and residential environments.
Corian Solid Surface with Resilience Technology also is quicker and easier to renew. Its surface looks new for a longer time and is easily maintained by occasional washing with water and a slightly abrasive pad by end-users or homeowners. This gentle washing visibly removes low-level scratches. These superior properties are built into the material and the performance is permanent, lasting for the entire life of the material.
Corian Solid Surface with Resilience Technology also offers all the properties and qualities of standard Corian products – such as design versatility, easy formability, nonporous nature and inconspicuous joints – providing architects, designers and fabricators a new and trusted easy-to-work material to produce superior results.
A patent-pending invention, the Resilience Technology is based on a series of chemistry and process innovations developed by the research and development team of Corian Design. This unique technology acts as an overall enhancer of the performance of all the attributes of Corian Solid Surface.
These improvements aim to further increase the possibilities of Corian Solid Surface in a variety of commercial applications – such as hospitality, education, healthcare, retail, offices and food service – as well as in the residential market.
Tests performed by the Corian Design business show that the specific improvements offered by Corian Solid Surface with Resilience Technology are not matched by other solid surfaces currently available in the market.
The Resilience Technology will be initially used to make four new colors of Corian Solid Surface which are going to be commercialized globally starting February 2018. These colors have been selected to capture a variety of business opportunities in specific applications and markets
The four colors of Corian Solid Surface with Resilience Technology are: Summit White (a pure and extremely versatile white tone); Stratus (an elegant gray tone); Keystone (a color inspired by the look of concrete); Cool Gray (combining small particles of different sizes into a gray matrix).
"In summer 2017, we launched the Make Your Space campaign, marking the beginning of a new era for Corian. This campaign is materialising in new marketing initiatives, new collaboration opportunities with customers, specifiers and industry, in the development of innovative colors, textures and functionalities. Within such vision, we are now launching the Resilience Technology which will demonstrate once again Corian Design as a superior solution for interior design and architecture, perfectly aligned with our Make Your Space tagline,” said Julie Eaton, global business director, Corian Design.
