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 offers a warm, soft and soothing feel to the skin. It does not feel ‘cold’ like many other surfaces do. Staron also offers a hygienic finish that abolishes cross contamination, perfect for dental surgeries, hospitals and aged care facilities. Staron prevents the growth of mould or mildew, providing a clean surface solution making it perfect for wet areas.
The thermoformability of Staron allows for designs of ergonomically friendly applications for wheelchair access. The non-porous and slip resistant nature of Staron also means it can be used in and around showers and bathtubs by creating curves for easy access.
The ability to join the surface with no open joins means that Staron adds heightened hygiene and eliminates dirt trapping crevices, that is essential in this type of industry. Staron also extends itself to fully integrated dentistry bowls, baby baths or sinks and vanities – with no open joins, just one continuous surface that performs as one piece.
Create monolithic wall surfaces, toilet partitions, food preparation kitchenettes and nurses stations – the possibilities are endless.
