Solid surface, as a non-porous, low-maintenance material, due to it’s durability, stain resistance, and wide range of colors and patterns, is becoming a design standard among designers and architects for intensive use and hygienic environments beyond just countertops. But what’s solid surface? Really so attractive and fashionable? See below basics of solid surface as an introduction to why KKR builds our products with this remarkably versatile material.
What is solid surface?
The first sheets of solid surface in 1964 in the world was created by Don Slocum who collaborated with researchers and engineers at DuPont, which they called Corian. It’s a reality of Slocum’s aspiration to create a durable, sanitary and aesthetically pleasing product that was homogenous in material and color. After the first sheet, many companies created their own brands of solid surface, such as LG HI-MACS®, DuPont™ Corian® and also KKR®.
Raw material of solid surface as below:
1.Aluminum Trihydrate (ATH), a natural mineral likened to stone dust, takes the form of white powder and adds tensile strength to the final product. This tensile strength is what allows solid surface products to carry loads without faltering.
2.Resin, the most common binder used in solid surface. Acrylic resin creates bendable pure acrylic solid surface. Polyester resin creates modified acrylic solid surface, which is non-bendable widely used for all flat surface like countertops, worktops, shower surroundings due to its higher cost performance.
3.Pigment, added to the mix to generate color. There are nearly limitless colors options for solid surface since the vast number of pigments and the thousands of color combinations.
After years’ development, now solid surface products include:
Solid surface sheets
Solid surface sanitary wares like bathtub, washbasin, stools, shower tray
Solid surface finished products like countertop, worktop, customized furniture.
