Why Choose Solid Surface over other materials?
Solid Surface products solve many problems in Kitchen design and use. Because it is “solid”, sheets of the material can be glued or “seamed” together to make a countertop of any shape or configuration. The finished product looks like it came out of a custom-made mould. The joints or seams are virtually undetectable. This allows Interior designers to designs Kitchens, bathrooms, etc. that are not limited by the sheet size of the material being used.
Solid Surface is Renewable
Solid Surface is a renewable product. Blemishes such as stains and scratches can be easily sanded out; restoring the countertop to its original condition years after it was first installed. The best finished is the matte/satin finished as it requires less maintenance than any other finishes.
Solid Surface is Homogeneous
There is no worry about de-lamination with Solid Surface as it is homogeneous.
Solid Surface is Seamless
It is seamless. No joints can be seen. Therefore, it yields limitless design possibilities and superior hygienic performance as there is no grout lines or caulked or epoxied joints (as with natural stone) to catch dirt and germs. And because it is virtually non-porous, most bacteria and fungi simply cannot grow on it. The salmonella that will find its way into most other surfaces will not last on Solid Surface. It is for this reason that Solid Surface and Stainless Steel are the only two surfaces that have received the NSF31 approval for used in food preparation areas.
Solid Surface is easy to care for
Cleanability and ease of maintenance, they are unmatched. Products that would ruin other countertops, like Ajax or Comet, only bring out the luster of a matte finish Solid Surface top.
Solid Surface sinks come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. When “seamed” to the countertop, the effect is a monolithic, “seamless” sink/worktop combined with no unsightly, unhygienic “ring” or under mount “lip”. You can even custom routed a drain board or inlay designs on your tops.
Because it is virtually unaffected by moisture, it does not support the growth of mold or mildew.
