Acrylic Solid Surfaces
Acrylic Solid Surface is a non-porous and low-maintenance engineered composite material. It mimics the appearance of stone and other naturally occurring materials and can be joined invisibly. Typically manufactured in sheet form for fabrication into finished work tops, countertops and the like. Acrylic Solid Surface can also be heated and bent into three-dimensional shapes using a process called thermoforming, adding to the versatility of the product. Color and design
flexibility are key factors when choosing engineered composites over natural stone.
Acrylic Solid Surfaces is rapidly becoming a popular material in residential applications adding value to the property. A major appeal of Acrylic Solid Surface is its seamless nature. Like other engineered composites it has a gel coat surface finish which makes Acrylic Solid Surface highly resistant to bacteria and staining, avoiding most of the problems inherent in natural stone surfaces. Acrylic Solid Surface sinks can be seamlessly integrated into the benchtop surface with no gaps, which eliminates areas for water to collect and bacteriaand germs to grow. Should the material become scratched or broken, Acrylic Solid Surface is renewable and repairable in most cases. Because the surface is solid throughout, a benchtop that has withstood years of use can be sanded and rebuffed. Although the installed product is available in a variety of finishes, from a practicality point and for ease of maintenance we recommend a matt or satin finish.
An emerging market for Acrylic Solid Surface is in commercial and industrial developments. Its non-porous characteristics, design flexibility, colour choice, durability, renew-ability and form-ability make it a favourite material for many designers and architects. The ability to combine these advantages and custom-color the material for large projects can be the driving force behind the development and realisation of innovative and independent ideas. Hospitals in particular, prefer the use of Acrylic Solid Surface for sinks, showers, nursing stations and wall cladding, because its seamless properties eliminate gaps and joins that harbor harmful bacteria.
