Posted on 01 September 2021 by cradmin

Corian® Design, a global brand in advanced surfacing solutions for interior design and architecture, has introduced seven new colors to its Corian Solid Surface Portfolio for interior spaces and architecture. These seven colors are divided into two unique collections, Carrara (Carrara Crema and Carrara Lino) and Artista (Artista Beige, Artista Dust, Artista Gray, Artista Canvas), and a standalone color, Sparkling Granita. These seven new colors of Corian Solid Surface are commercially now available along with the full color palette now including more than 100 colors.

With its design versatility, functionality and durability, Corian Solid Surface can be fabricated with most conventional woodworking tools into virtually any design. According to the company this nonporous material is easy to clean and can be thermoformed into seamless designs so that dirt, mold and bacteria have nowhere to hide.

Additional information about the seven new products includes:

  • Carraras – Inspired by eternal marble stone, prominent veins inform a look in cool and warm colors that are simultaneously classic and modern.
    • Carrara Lino (pictured) – Beautiful gray veins course through the cool white surface to create a perfect interpretation of classically inspired stone.
    • Carrara Crema – A warm beige background is enhanced with enticing monochromatic veins that conjure classic stone in colors that comfort.
  • Artistas – Complexity generates aesthetics with pronounced veins set into neutral grounds. The effect is timeless and contemporary for any application.
    • Artista Beige – Beige is enhanced with similar tones and shades to create a complex look that adds modernity to the warm coloring of the surface.
    • Artista Gray – Enduring gray is freshened with an intricate vein pattern within the surface and dark veins flow through mid-value gray for innovative appeal.
    • Artista Dust – Dark gray, monochrome elements swirl within the dusky background creating an aesthetic that resonates with multiple design styles.
    • Artista Canvas – A comforting, warm ivory surface offers a haven for swirling veins set amongst scattered, light-colored particles.

• Sparkling Granita – Translucent and sparkling particles create an effervescent effect in this fresh white surface to convey energy and visual depth.

The company stated that the material is suitable for use in a variety of residential and commercial applications, including wall features, countertops, vanity tops, tub/shower walls and more. Corian Solid Surface is also renewable and repairable on-site, making it environmentally friendly.

LOTTE Launches Super Flex Technology

Posted on 13 October 2020 by cradmin3

The design possibilities for countertops and surfaces have expanded exponentially with Super Flex technology from Staron®. Demonstrating superior thermoplastic properties, surfaces made with LOTTE’s innovative Super Flex technology enable design of futuristic, functional surfaces ideally suited for creative uses in commercial, residential and public-space projects.

Unlike other formable technologies, Super Flex delivers a superior elongation rate, with a minimum radius of 0mm. This provides designers and architects increased design flexibility to create dramatic curves and never-before-attainable bending features.

High-performance architectural and interior applications include customized wall-cladding, kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities and furniture construction. Currently available in the Infinity shade of white, surfaces made with Super Flex technology can be fabricated with computer-controlled CNC machines to create precise 3D shapes. Like all Staron products, these surfaces are easy to maintain and ultra-hygienic.

“Designers and architects seek more than extensive collections of rich colors and patterns. They also need the flexibility to form surfaces into creative shapes that high-end residential and commercial customers desire,” stated John Kim, director, LOTTE Chemical Corp. “Super Flex technology represents the cutting edge of formable surface creation, delivering both design flexibility and unparalleled performance.”

LOTTE Introduces Evermoin Surfaces

Posted on 09 September 2020 by cradmin3

Ultra-hygienic Evermoin® surfaces from Staron® are now available to U.S. customers. Manufactured to suppress the growth of microbes, including common bacteria, Evermoin surfaces are specifically designed for environments requiring exceptionally-clean conditions such as healthcare facilities, retail establishments and high-traffic office environments.

The Evermoin line has received certification from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (US FDA 21 CFR 177.1010) and the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). Non-toxic Evermoin surfaces can be installed in most any interior space; from countertops, tabletops, bathrooms, and wall cladding, to furniture casework and office workstations. Two contemporary, neutral colors are currently available – Limpio and Ultra Bright – and can be cleansed simply with commonly available bleach solutions.

“We designed Evermoin to meet the growing need for technologies that provide and maintain cleaner, healthier environments,” stated John Kim, director, LOTTE Chemical Corp. “LOTTE continues to be at the forefront of research and development of ultra-hygienic surface technologies that will improve our overall health and wellness in the spaces we work and live.”

Testing of the Evermoin material demonstrated a proliferation inhibition rate of 99.9 percent or higher. Specifically, the Evermoin surface inhibits the number of surviving bacteria to fewer than 1,000 (1/1,000) after test specimens go through antibacterial treatment in a laboratory environment where the number of bacteria can multiply to 1,000,000.
