Also, what can Corian be used for?
Corian is a brand of solid surface material created by DuPont. Its primary use is as a countertop/benchtop surface, though it has many other applications. It is composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate (ATH), a material derived from bauxite ore.
Also Know, are there different grades of Corian? While Corian does not come in grades, it's produced by DuPont in a range of thicknesses. The thicker the material, the costlier it is. The thickest Corian is more durable and resistant to damage while the thinnest Corian is the most affordable. Corian thicknesses include .
Likewise, people ask, is Corian environmentally friendly?
Corian countertops (aka, solid surface countertops) have several features that make them relatively eco-friendly. Finally, Corian countertops have low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions (or, at least, the ones I have seen do), which is much better for your indoor air quality.
What is the best alternative to Corian?
2: LG makes an acrylic solid surface countertop material that is sold under the brand name HI-MACS. It looks and acts very similarly to Corian. 3: Also by DuPont, Zodiaq is a quartz countertop material. Quartz countertops are dense, engineered stone made of mostly quartz crystal bound together by acrylic resin.
