Solid Surface Countertops
Solid surface material is made of acrylics or polyester-based plastics, that are heated until melting, and then poured into a mold. Solid surface countertops have a slightly softer feel than quartz and may be thinner.
Sold surface countertops are NOT resistant to heat and can scratch.
A solid surface countertop is easy to maintain and offer a timeless style. They are nearly as durable as granite, marble, or quartz. The major benefit of solid surface countertops, often sold under the names of Formica or Silestone is the lower price than a material like granite or quartz.
Along with Corian, other popular brands of solid surface countertop materials include:
Formica Solid Surfacing.
