Nonporous and Stain Resistant – Spills don’t permeate the surface. With correct cleaning, promotion of mold, mildew or bacteria growth is removed.
Durable – Heavy use and resilience in busy clinical environments means less down time.
Restorable – Marks and scratches can be easily removed/repaired returning the surface back to its nonporous, stain resistant starting point.
Easy to Keep Clean – Seamless integration with no dirt traps make cleaning quicker and more effective.

At Counter Production we have been involved in many Dental Surgery refits and bespoke laboratory projects. It is essential when using solid surface or Corian® that the fabrication and fitting are carried out by a Quality Network Fabricator to ensure that the material’s key benefits in a sterile environment are observed.  We have heard of many instances where customers we told they we getting Corian, only to find out it was a cheaper alternative when something goes wrong – as one of DuPont’s longest Quality Network Fabricators, with over 30 years of experience, using Counter Production for your Healthcare project guarantees that this is achieved.
