Solid Surface countertops (such as Corian) have been around for 50+ years when they started as a trend and are now considered a strong, mid-priced countertop material. They are comprised of 66% minerals (like bauxite derivatives and aluminum trihydrate) with the remaining 33% consisting of binding resins. They can be made to resemble many types of stone and have a very low porosity. They are easy to repair with an orbital sander and fine grain sand paper and their seams are virtually invisible. They can be molded to integrate sinks, create shower bases, coved backsplashes etc, which helps prevent bacteria from growing.
