Retail surfaces are subject to any manner of uses and potential stains. Thankfully, the non-porous nature of Staron ensures that no stain is ever permanent. The flexible design nature of Staron also makes it possible to create any design for any project. Thermoforming Staron creates curves and shapes, allowing it to be formed and sculpted into almost any design or concept. The transparency of selected colours means that Staron can be illuminated by backlighting for creative impact.

Due to the non-porous and repairable properties of Staron – it is also a hygienic solution for toilet partitions and vanities in retail shopping centres or malls. Service counters, baby change countertops, seating and wall panels too can be created using this ultra-modern material. Even furniture pieces, display cabinets, and creative sculptures are possible!
