Dessco Countertops, Our Selection of Solid surface Countertops

Solid surface is a petroleum-based product made from the combination of acrylic or polyester resins and an inert filler material. Its beauty, aside from pure aesthetics, lies in its ease of workability and repairability. Seams are virtually invisible which allows large expanses of countertop space to be connected with no visible joints. This nice feature also means that a solid surface sink can be joined to the countertop for a seamless installation, with no discernible edge between the countertop and the sink.

Acrylic-based material was the first type of solid surface, formulated by the DuPont® company. Acrylic enjoys several advantages over polyester in that it´s harder, more impact resistant and less brittle than polyester. It won´t fade or discolour from exposure to ultraviolet light whereas polyester has less resistance to UV light.

Acrylic also has greater thermoformability - meaning it can be formed and shaped with heat more easily than polyester. This is important during the fabrication of your countertops should your design incorporate any bends or other features that require the material to be formed. Polyester on the other hand is more chemical resistant particularly with regard to acrylic-based chemicals such as acetone and nail polish remover. Polyester can also achieve a higher polish than acrylic and offers a greater ability for achieving a translucent effect.

The fabrication and installation of solid surface countertops requires craftsmen that are trained in the skills necessary to install them. The process involves cutting, routing and bonding various pieces together to create the final product.
