DuPont Corian® Exterior application

Seekoo Hotel designed by Atelier King Kong.


March 8th, 2010

DuPont Corian® combines aesthetics with high performance, making it an ideal choice for exterior applications. While colour stability is often a primary concern when evaluating a material for exterior use, there are boundless other performance factors that should be taken into consideration.

Corian® colours exhibit exemplary colour stability, thanks to low moisture absorption and resistance to stains, environmental pollutants, detergents, and humidity as well as freeze-thaw conditions. Design flexibility, ease of fabrication, seamless appearance, thermoformability and durability make Corian® a versatile material.

Corian® can be easily sanded and/or cleaned to restore its original appearance. Even graffiti can be removed through standard pressure washing with baking soda-based cleaning agents. All of these performance factors combined make Corian® an excellent choice for exterior applications.

Create outdoor furniture, benchtops to surround barbeque areas or use Corian® for your external wall cladding like the beautiful Seeko’o Hotel situated in Bordeaux, France. DuPont Corian® solid surface gives you unlimited access to design possibilities.
