Solid surface is not stone-cold, like concrete, quartz, and granite. It is smooth and “warm” and provides a forgiving hardness; when a glass is tipped over, it may not break. However, when dropped from a distance, glass will likely break.
Thermoformable (Heat And Bend Into Curves And Shapes)
In recent years, the solid surface industry has begun to leverage solid surface’s ability to become pliable when heated to around 230 degrees. Once it is in this state, it resembles a thick wet lasagna noodle. When you drape the “noodle” over an object, solid surface will conform to the shape and retain that shape when it cools.
