Corian countertops for long-lasting beauty
Corian countertops, made by DuPont and sold at thousands of home improvement stores and countertop dealers, are solid surface countertops that offer a wide variety of styles and over 100 colors. There are three types of Corian finishes--matte/satin, semi-gloss and high-gloss.
In addition to being durable and easy to clean, Corian also resists mildew, mold and bacteria. The material is NSF/ANSI 51 certified as suitable for food contact. While Corian is non-porous and stain-resistant, the manufacturer recommends some routine care and cleaning, as well as minimizing direct heat exposure to protect the surface.
These countertops must be installed by a professional, and come with a limited warranty. The company offers the Countertops 1-2-3 program, in which a consultant can help you make the best choice for your kitchen remodel. DuPont claims a customer satisfaction rate of 96 percent among those who have chosen Corian for their solid surface countertops.
