In addition, these nonporous surfaces, when properly cleaned, do not promote the growth of mold and mildew, making them ideal choices for homes, healthcare and food preparation facilities, schools, and offices. At Corian® Design, we’re always working with homeowners, designers and architects to discover sustainable new building solutions.
Thanks to its inherent stain resistance, Corian® Quartz lasts a long time. It can easily be repaired and renewed, thus minimising the desire or need to replace and dispose of it. However, should you want to redesign, Corian® Quartz can be removed, re-cut and either reinstalled or reworked into new products.
Sustainability, Technically Speaking
All Corian® Quartz surfaces offer high performance and environmental benefits that may help your project earn LEED certification points under the LEED Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), which we are members of. For more information, please see Contributing to Sustainable Design and LEED.
Corian® Quartz surfaces have received important independent certification for their environmental performance (such as GreenGuard®, NAHB North American Builders Association, Scientific Certification Systems). Their hygienic performance has also been certified by prestigious independent institutions (such as NSF International).
Corian® Quartz is NSF/ANSI Standard 51 Certified for food contact, the highest level, for all food types in commercial food preparation.
