Frequently Asked Questions

What is Corian®?

Corian® is the brand name for a solid surfacing material created by DuPont that has earned trust and respect as a proven material that brings design versatility, long-term performance and value to any environment. More than just countertops, Corian® lends itself to imaginative uses, innovative interpretations, and enduring applications. It can be cut, routed, drilled, sculpted, bent, or worked like a fine wood. The ever-evolving color palette now extends to more than 100 colors. If you can envision it, chances are you can create it with Corian®.

Is Corian® stain-resistant?

Corian® is stain-resistant. Because Corian® is nonporous, stains can’t penetrate the surface, so it’s easy to clean and maintain. Unlike natural stone, Corian® never requires sealing.

Is Corian® heat-resistant?

We do not recommend placing a hot pot directly on Corian®. Although Corian® remains stable and undamaged in temperatures up to 212 °F (100 °C), high heat or flame will damage your surface. In most cases, this damage can be repaired. To protect your Corian® from heat damage, always use a hot pad or a trivet with rubber feet when using hot pots, or heat-generating appliances like electric skillets or electric cooking pots.

How do I clean my Corian®?

Corian® is easy to clean. Soapy water or an ammonia-based cleaner is all that is necessary for day-to-day care of your Corian®. Minor scratches, burns or discoloration are also easy to repair. Major damage should be repaired by a Certified Fabricator/Installer of DuPont Corian®. Contact an Authorized Retailer of Corian® for assistance.
