DuPont™ Corian®: the iconic beauty of a versatile and elegant material in a world that is Hospitality

Corian® is renowned for its exceptional versatility, reliability, elegance and almost limitless design possibilities. It is an advanced acrylic material filled with minerals. With homogeneous colours, the material has a characteristic finish and a fascinating interaction with light.
Regardless of the nature of the project, Corian® gives you complete creative freedom. You can engrave it, format it in almost any pattern and in any of the colors available in your range. We can say that Corian® offers and opens up design possibilities that are not offered by products based on natural stones.
Whenever we visit a hotel, we know that the first impression is the one that lasts, whether in the reception area or in the rooms. A pleasant, welcoming and clean environment can make a difference. For more than 40 years, designers around the world have been using Corian® in hotels because of its inherent properties in hygiene requirements, versatility and creative flexibility.
Cleanliness is extremely important in all areas of hotels and we know that for guests this is a paramount point when settling in. Corian® is a non-porous solid, it is bonded with imperceptible seams, which makes it a perfect solution for use in spas, bathrooms and leisure areas.
We know that it is important to keep the time used for cleaning to a minimum while keeping the standard high. In Corian applications made in bathrooms, the washbasins are integrated into the countertops in order to eliminate corners where dirt or moisture can accumulate. Corian® is easy and quick to clean using common household products and when properly cleaned, does not encourage the growth of mold and mildew.
Therefore, we can say that Corian® is a durable, non-porous material that does not undergo delamination. It is also resistant to stains and cracks. Scratches and burns can be easily removed, while larger damage can be repaired on the spot.
For any hotel, profitability depends on maximum occupancy, so reducing downtime is a crucial factor when thinking about repairs and/or renovations.
We also remind you that Corian® has a low environmental impact and therefore holds several independent certifications such as (Green Guard, NAHB North American Builders Association, LEED Green Building Rating System of the U.S., among others).
