Part VI: Corian and Plastic Kitchen Countertops

by Owen Sechrist

Corian countertop

Corian countertops were created over 30 years ago.  When they were introduced they were wildly popular, and with good reason.  In additiona to great looks, invisible seams and good repairablility they were also an inexpensive countertop option.

Due to problem installations DuPont created a proprietary system for Corian and it is now available only from certified fabricators/installers.

These days Corian tops are a mid range option and continue to be popular for both home and business countertops.

Increasingly they face competition from many newer companies who are producing acrylic and plastic countertops.

And that brings us to the end of this series on countertop materials.  If you have any questions or would like more information about any material discussed or any that I missed don't hesitate to comment!
