Object NameCorian Samples on Mount

DescriptionMount board with eight samples of Corian from DuPont. Corian® is the brand name for a solid surface material created by DuPont. It is composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Corian can be thermoformed by heating it to 300°F (150°C), allowing unique shapes to be created. Its primary use is in kitchen countertops, bathroom vanity tops, and wall cladding in showers. Corian® is manufactured by DuPont in the form of sheets and sinks. The sheets are precut into specific lengths at the factories and then shipped to a worldwide network of distributors. DuPont introduced Corian® nationwide in 1971 at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Show in Houston, Texas. Shortly thereafter, Corian® solid surfaces was introduced in four then-popular colors: Cameo White, Olive Mist, Dawn Beige and Autumn Gold. Cameo White and Dawn Beige remain among the most popular Colors of Corian® today.
