DuPont™ Corian® introduces more rich and beautiful blacks made with pioneering DeepColour™ Technology.
In addition to Deep Nocturne, DuPont presents Deep Anthracite, Deep Black Quartz and Deep Night Sky.
February 2014 –There is an exciting new design option available in solid surfaces, offering an advanced solution for darker colours and delivering high performance, elegance and reliability.
New DeepColour™ Technology has been used to produce four sophisticated black tones:
Deep Nocturne, a classic, solid, and ultra-versatile jet black
Deep Anthracite, a lustrous black immersed with minute flecks of silver.
Deep Black Quartz, a sleek black landscape offset by an array of ivory specks
Deep Night Sky, a midnight black with a galaxy of translucent particles.
As part of its "Endless Evolution" initiative, DuPont has again set the standard in advanced surfacing materials for interior design and architecture. DeepColour™ Technology (a patent pending invention) now enables the creation of dark solid surfaces which offer deeper, more intense and durable colour, improved wear performance, plus easier thermoforming, seaming and finishing.
"DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces are transforming interior design and architecture, thanks to their special combination of properties and performance,” says Eddy Verschueren, Global Technical Manager for DuPont™ Corian®, DuPont Building Innovations. “Through DeepColour™ Technology, we have proposed a superior solution - in terms of fabrication, aesthetics and functionality – in dark colours. Thanks to the versatility of this technology, we will soon be introducing other colours, which will offer the same combination of functionality and beauty, delivering the innovation promise behind our ‘Endless Evolution’ programme."
