How are solid surface countertops made?
Made of an acrylic base, this man-made top will also have polyester resins, marble dust, and other pigments in it. Each mixture of ingredients will be poured in a standard sheet form. The form will be placed in an oven for curing. After the top is cured it can be cut to your measurements. A CNC machine will cut to your exact dimensions to give a great finished look.
Solid Surface Countertops
Widely know by their brand name, Corian is a solid surface countertop that's great for a chefs kitchen because they are non-porous meaning they won't stain or grow mildew. They are also germ resistant. This top is also strong and self-supporting, which helps achieve a seamless countertop around corners.
Even though it is easily scratched, it can be buffed out. The main drawback is the melting point. Solid surface tops have a laminate-like heat tolerance.
