What are the differences between Corian® and mineralmarble gelcoat?

Corian® is a unique solid surface. As hard as stone and as malleable as wood, it technically surpasses both materials for its thermoformability and invisible joints. Strong and durable, it easily resists against impacts, scratches and day-to-day wear. Colours and textures are present across the entire thickness of this material which means they do not suffer from wear. Corian® is considered one of the few materials that can be repaired, making it a wining choice with respect to others that can be irremediably damaged. Small scratches can be removed using an abrasive Scotch-Brite sponge, while more consistent damages, caused by improper use, can be invisibly repaired by inserting a new piece of the same material. Inert, non-toxic, chemically non-reactive, Corian® is certified for contact with food products. It releases no volatile substances into the environment which has earned it GreenGuard® certification.

Mineralmarble is a material composed of 75% natural minerals and 25% polyester resin, finished with a technical layer of marine gelcoat. The gelcoat finish is often white, though it can also be coloured. During daily cleaning it is not possible to use abrasive or aggressive detergents, as they will ruin the surface. The gelcoat is only 1 millimetre thick so if it becomes damaged the material below will begin to absorb any substance resting on the surface.
