A well-established favourite of the design community, Staron Solid Surfaces is composed of natural minerals derived from bauxite ore before being blended with an acrylic resin – the result is the design world’s most beloved surface material.

The New Year is an opportunity for growth, renewal and a chance to take a new step forward in your personal and professional lives. The team at Staron know this, and have a suite of Solid Surface solutions applicable for an endless array of new design application in 2018. From large-scale commercial and niche designer fit-outs to residential and small-scale projects – the silk-like finish of the surface is sure to be the right fit for the job, and with a range of over 80 colours to select from, the surface will work aesthetically, as well as functionally. 

Being non-porous in nature, no stain can penetrate into the material, which makes not only for a durable surface, but one that’s easy to keep clean and maintain. When installing Staron Solid Surfaces, the material is joined with a special adhesive before being sanded back, creating long and wide continuing surfaces with no open joins. So aside from being used for curved, join-free benchtops or counters, the material can also be applied when designing kitchen sinks or vanity designs, free from dirt trapping joining points, leak risks, or crevices to clean.

These unique properties see Staron as a totally renewable surface, meaning that even after years of use it can be giving a sanding to be restored back to its original condition. All this comes in an environmentally sustainable material that is Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certified, with a 10 Year Warranty. Staron Solid Surfaces provides a design solution that pushes the boundaries of design.
