The 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 environments.
Corian® Solid Surface with Resilience Technology™ is also 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 at further increasing 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™ is currently used to make four new colors of Corian® Solid Surface. 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.” says Julie Eaton, Global Business Director, Corian® Design.
