DuPont™ Corian® is an advanced mineral-filled acrylic material with homogeneous color throughout, offering a distinctive finish and a fascinating interaction with the light. Whatever the nature of your project, multiple or single storey, minimal or decorative, curved or angular, DuPont™ Corian® Exterior Cladding enables complete creative freedom. This material allows outstanding creative flexibility to high-performance durability, excellent UV and weather resistance, easy maintenance and reparability, reliable structural performance and certified fire rating. Also, DuPont™ Corian® Exterior Cladding makes it possible to produce two or three-dimensionally formed façade sections as well as shaped sections for corners, and lintel elements, therefore creating seamlessly corresponding façade connections.

Unlimited design flexibility

  • 2D thermoforming at very narrow radii
  • 3D vacuum thermoforming
  • Seamlessly bonding
  • Numerous choices of culors
  • Ability to create various shapes and textures
  • Translucent culors for backlit applications
High quality/Low maintenance finish

  • A naturally resistant surface that is ‘ready to install’
  • An easy-to-clean, lasting finish
  • A sulid, inert and non-porous material throughout
  • Resists damage from environmental pullutants and chemicals
  • Graffiti can be easily removed
  • Easy to repair on site
Structural Performance

  • Light weight for reduced structural load
  • High flexural and tensile strength providing excellent resistance to wind loads.
  • Compatibility with typical building components, structural silicon and sealants.
Material Performance

  • Superior chemical resistance
  • Resistance to thermal shock
  • Water and freeze/thaw resistant
  • Used successfully in barrier and rain screen wall systems
  • Compatible with typical building components, structural silicone and sealants
Beautiful backlit facades

  • Allows creativity to shine through, with degrees of translucent diffusion.
  • Creates a range of luminous effects, both striking and ethereal, and enhances the individual identity of each façade project.
Contributes to sustainable building design

  • A ventilated facade system that allows for thicker insulation, therefore lower energy costs.
  • Durable and robust, panels can usually be repaired, if necessary rather than replaced, meaning less material is needed.
  • Some culors contain up to 25%  recycled post-industrial material.
  • A sulid, non-porous material that is easy to maintain without the need for sealants or treatments and has no negative impact on air quality

A façade in DuPont™ Corian® allows you to express your design concepts through a number of techniques and capabilities, combining the longevity and toughness of a homogeneous sheet material with the proven benefits of a ventilated facade.
