DUPONT™ CORIAN®

WHAT IS CORIAN®?

DuPont™ Corian® is a solid, pore-free material, an advanced aluminum and acrylic trihydrate (PMMA) compound, developed as a practical material for daily living. Corian® ensures wide design possibilities, functional and durable. By working with plates we can make them adopt practically all kinds of shapes, always giving the 10 year guarantee that DuPont™ offers being handled only by a Quality workshop as in our case (see Certified DZinzel Taller Quality Diploma). Since its introduction in 1967, DuPont™ Corian® has proven to be a durable and versatile material, making it easy to live at home, in commercial premises, and even on facades of buildings or establishments.

  • Resistant

    To blows, scratched and daily use. It has been tested against heat, stains, ultraviolet rays, most of the acids and penetration of projectiles. The results of these specific tests are available to those requesting them.

  • Homogeneous

    Colors and textures are equally uniform throughout the mass of the material and therefore can not be worn. It is a homogeneous material that does not exfoliate.

  • Imperceptible gaskets

    They are invisible, making it virtually possible to make unlimited surfaces in all directions. The edges can be made of any thickness and the very long worktops can be made by pieces in the workshop and assemble at the customer's house with imperceptible joints.

  • Repairable

    The surfaces can be repaired by a powder detergent and an abrasive scourer even by the customer. In this way, for example, cigarette stains can be easily removed. In general, even the most serious damage caused by improper use can be repaired, in these cases directly by qualified workshops such as D'Zinzel, and in most cases in the same house as the customer without the need to dismantle the element repair. Thanks to its durability and the possibility of repairing it, Corian® is an inherently environmentally compatible material.

  • Not toxic

    Corian® Is an inert, non-toxic and hypo allergenic material. Under normal temperature conditions there is no gas. Thanks to the presence of aluminum trihydrate, Corian® delays the spread of fire. The emanating smoke is optically light and contains no halogenated toxic gases. For this reason it is used in public places and delicate applications, such as airport check-in desks or the walls and work surfaces of operating rooms and hospital resuscitation units, as well as in geriatric, cruise ships and ferries.

  • Hygienic

    The surfaces of Corian® are hygienic because it is a pore-free material and bacteria and molds can not nest in it and precisely because of this, the colors do not change over time, white remains white all life. When Corian® looks clean, it's really clean.

  • Moldable term

    Corian® can be molded thanks to the action of heat, at controlled temperature, by means of molds.

  • It works like wood

    It can be worked as the hardest wood and using similar tools. We are committed to innovation and continuous improvement to provide the best customer satisfaction, incorporating new specific tools for the handling of the same along with those of wood, thus achieving a refined effect on the endings of the elements to be manufactured.

  • Respectful with the environment

    It is manufactured in accordance with strict standards to limit waste and energy consumption at all stages of the production process. Both the material itself and the adhesives and sealants used in its installation have the GREEN GUARD Indoor Air Quality Certificied in the production of low VOC emissions.

  • Translucent (in 2 forms)

    On the one hand, which may have some specific models (called Corian® ICE) where it is especially highlighted in light colors and 6mm plates. And with which many designers have already designed lamps, so that the light exalts the three-dimensional effect of Corian®.
    Another way of working is also factory-operated by numerical control over the Corian® surface, creating a multitude Of designs, so that, once a light is projected either natural or artificial source on the opposite side, the marked work can be observed through it, leaving also the material without pores or joints.

WHAT IS IT FOR?

After more than 50 years of existence, Corian® material has been well-known among the designers, engineers and architects with whom D'Zinzel has been working, using both wood and Corian® in many different fields, and now We make it easy for you to enjoy it, we take care of it and develop it according to the design you like, giving you the cleanness and practicality you need for your home.

Therefore it is not difficult to find who decides to use the Corian® even for kitchen furniture.

IN BATHROOMS

In this space of the house is also usually working, leaving the worktop attached as if it were the kitchen, creating shower trays that allow you to adapt whatever the architecture of the space remaining even flush completely the floor, Baths to taste that can be designed and created with this material, or even the complete union of floor coverings and walls without noticeable joints in any area.

IN FURNITURE

Its use also leads to the design of special and durable furniture adapted to any environment and even for those who are going to suffer exposure to weather agents or simply because an innovative design that allows cleaning, "no unions" and the Repair of any damages that may occur.

IN HEALTH

Known for all the level of hygiene required in this type of space, it is not difficult to imagine that Corian® is widely used, because its non-porosity offers them the septicity they need. Its use goes from hospitals and their operating rooms, to geriatric and even day care centers.

IN FACADES

DuPont™ Corian® combines aesthetics and high performance, and is the ideal choice for facade cladding. Colored in all their thickness, DuPont™ Corian® custom panels offer easy maintenance, resistance to the weather and UV rays, and unlimited possibilities in decoration and finishes. They can also be repaired in situ.

In short, you have before you a material of limitless possibilities, that D'Zinzel works as a Quality workshop applying all the necessary standards to give you the 10-year guarantee that the brand supports for any ideas and / or needs you may have.

Manufacturing and Finishing

BASIC MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUES: DuPont™ Corian® is a material that combines the durability of the stone with the ductility of the wood. It is impossible to relate in this book all the techniques of manufacture, but the following sections describe the most important.

CUT: DuPont™ Corian® is harder than wood. To cut an iron and get the desired parts, saws and milling machines must be powerful enough to work the material. For straight cuts, a circular saw with carbide or diamond teeth is recommended for bends, a manual or numerical control (CNC) milling machine depending on the number of identical parts to be cut. Rounded inner corners are milled to prevent cracking. The strawberries must be carbide or tungsten.

UNIONS: All edges of the pieces for bonding should be straight, square and thoroughly cleaned using ethanol on a clean white cloth before applying the adhesive. Two components of the Corian® DuPont™ sealant in appropriate color combination will be used to make invaluable joints, one of the hallmarks of DuPont™ Corian®.

SANDING: The surfaces are sanded with an orbital sander following "North-South" and "East-West" movements making small circular motions. Sanding is done in several steps and with decreasing degrees of roughness. The finish can be varied from matt to glossy, depending on the effect the designer wants. DuPont™ suggests a semi-matt finish, because it is easy to get and maintain. Bright finishes tend to fade over time especially in areas of heavy use.
