LONDON, October 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
DuPont Protection Solutions announced today the introduction of its newest product offering in North America, DuPont™ Corian® Exterior Cladding. Architects who want to make a timeless design statement can now turn to Corian® Exterior Cladding offering for their next project. In addition to durability, beauty and longevity, Corian® enables monolithic design, unique patterns and lighting effects uncommon in standard exterior façade materials.
Corian® Exterior Cladding is now available in 15 UV stable colors with excellent colorfastness. The offering also provides weatherability benefits, including high-performance durability through its great resistance to impact, humidity and fungi - making it an excellent choice for ventilated façade construction. The light-weight material allows for reduced structural load while having the tensile strength to provide resistance against wind loads and being compatible with typical building components. In addition, Corian® Exterior Cladding has proven to be a low-maintenance solution over time and even if covered with difficult dirt or graffiti, the panels can be restored to their original appearance through cleaning and sanding.
"The Corian® Design global organization has developed the technical expertise and product offering to demonstrate Corian® as a modern design material to achieve on-trend, unique architectural visions, while maintaining functional characteristics desirable for exteriors," said Beth Stewart, global business development manager, Corian® Design at DuPont.
"Architects around the world are discovering and exploiting the qualities of Corian® to create functional and visually stunning solutions for commercial building design," added Stewart.
Corian® Exterior Cladding has been included on over 100 very high profile global projects worldwide.
