One feature that makes solid surface materials unique is its seamless appearance. These products can be installed without the visible seams of natural stone or quartz. Because solid surface is a nonporous material, stains and bacteria are not an issue.
Solid surface is an excellent choice for both residential and commercial applications. Color choices and patterns abound. Because it is nonporous, so it is especially suitable for use in the food preparation and health care industries. It is also resistant to many chemical compounds, making it a good choice for laboratories.
Solid Surface material is a generic term for materials that are composed of two main ingredients: a natural mineral filler and a resin binder. Along with a few other elements such as pigments, UV absorbers, stabilizers and catalysts, these materials are then cast into sheets.
Solid surface sheets can then be fabricated into a variety of projects, from worktops to ceilings and design wall features to cladding panels. The acrylic-based resin solid surfaces can be heated and bent to almost any imaginable shape. The design possibilities are endless.
Because of the number of large-scale manufacturers offering solid surface products, a wide variety of colors and patterns are available to choose from. The selection ranges to a basic solid white to patterns and colors that mimic granite, quartz, concrete, and marble.
Solid surface is one of the most repairable materials available. If scratched, burned, or cracked, sections of the countertop can be removed and replaced easily with little or no noticeable damage.
We have our own large bed thermoformer with dedicated CNC machinery to assist our trained and accredited team designated solely to solid surface works.
