Solid Surface

Commonly know as Corian, Swanstone, Staron, Avonite, HI-MACS, LivingStone, Sage Surfaces and Wilsonart, is a generic term for materials that are composed natural mineral filler and a resin binder.

Solid surface countertops can then be fabricated into numerous projects, one of the most common being 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.

There are a vast number of advantages to using solid surface for your kitchen or bath countertops. First of all, with so many manufacturers offering solid surface like Corian, Staron, Hi Macs, Avonite, and Gibraltar, there are a wide variety of colors and patterns to choose from. The selection ranges to a basic solid snow white to patterns and colors that mimic granite, quartz, concrete and marble. The design possibilities are endless.

One of the features that make solid surface countertop materials unique, is the seamless appearance. These products can be installed without the visible seams of natural stone or quartz. You also have the option to seam or “cove” your backsplash to the countertop, as well as integrate a sink. Because it is a nonporous material, stains and bacteria are not an issue.
