The flexible design nature of Staron® Solid Surfaces makes it possible to create any design imaginable. Thermoforming Staron® creates curves and shapes in the material, allowing it to be formed and sculpted into almost any design or concept.
Staron® Solid Surfaces is comprised of a natural and pure mineral derived from bauxite ore and blended with an advanced pure acrylic resin, resulting in the world’s premium surface material. Staron® Solid Surfaces meets every criteria to create a project that will look like the day it was installed, for years to come.
The demanding and high traffic environment of retail fit-outs need a surface that is durable, hard wearing, renewable and non-porous. Staron® Solid Surfaces’ inconspicuous joins make cleaning easy with no dirt trapping crevices, unachievable with many other materials. The non-porous nature ensures that no stain is ever permanent.
Staron® Solid Surfaces is suitable for endless applications in a commercial or residential project. Due to the non-porous and repairable properties of Staron® – it is also a hygienic solution for toilet partitions and vanities in shopping centres. The surface is suitable for service counters, baby change countertops, seating, wall panels, furniture pieces, display cabinets, table tops, feature shop fit-outs, shelving and creative sculptures.
With a silk-like finish and a range of over 80 colours to select from, Staron® is both aesthetically and functionally pleasing. The transparency of selected colours means that Staron® can be illuminated by backlighting for creative impact, enabling unique designs by etching a brand or logo into the Staron® material and backlighting to illuminate it. You can also inlay multiple colours of Staron® to create corporate logos or colours, allowing for endless possibilities. All this comes in an environmentally sustainable material, with a 10 Year Limited Warranty.
