We've Been Making Solid Surface Countertops for More than 25 Years
Solid Surface Countertops Overview
Solid Surface countertops are a generic term for materials that are composed of two main ingredients: natural mineral filler and a resin binder. You might know Solid Surface as another name: Corian. Corian was a Solid Surface product pioneered by Dupont in the 1990's, and has since become synonymous with Solid Surface.
Along with a few other elements such as pigments, UV absorbers, stabilizers, and catalyst these materials are then cast into ¼, ½, ¾ or 1 ¼ (3cm) sheets that can be fabricated into numerous projects, one of the most common being kitchen and bath countertops.
Solid Surface products are some of the most unique materials for countertops and other surfaces. The acrylic-based resin Solid Surfaces can actually be heated and bent to almost any imaginable shape.

Solid Surface is generally comparable to other stone products like Granite and Cambria quartz. A lot depends on the specific material being used.
Solid Surface countertops require less maintenance than granite and other natural stone products - they do not need to be sealed. However, they are susceptible to scratching over time, so they may occasionally need to be professionally sanded.
