Acrylic can be thermoformable (can be shaped using heat and pressure) which means we can create a wide variety of shapes; with design possibilities for an impressive range of applications. Acrylic is usually made up of about 30% acrylic and 70% PVC. The higher the acrylic % the better quality, heat resistance and strength (we only use high quality Acrylic).
They offer the look of stone or marble, but have a unique warmth when touched thanks to the mix of all natural minerals blended with high-performance acrylic. Acrylic can be shaped in a seamless manner, which means that there are no joins or crevices which creates an aesthetically stunning look as well as being more hygienic and easy to clean.
An Acrylic benchtop is akin to a commercial-grade benchtop – you will have seen them in pubs, restaurants, shops etc but with an affordable price tag they are a great option for any kitchen project.
They are easy to clean and relinquish colour staining very well. They are not immune to staining though and can bubble under intense heat. Acrylic can be translucent so light can shine through it.
Acrylic is very malleable, we can heat the material and mold it into almost any shape. So rather than list every possible permutation, here are options that are typically applied to Acrylic benchtops.
Edge thickness: 36mm
Edge shape: Square
Sinks: Undermount integrated Corian sinks. The bottom base is stainless
steel and the walls of sink are made of Corian.
One unique thing about acrylic sinks is that they can be made of the same material and pattern as a benchtop, so it looks seamless!
Corners: Square and radius
Seamless joins are standard with Acrylic benchtops
Stains can be erased without a trace by using standard household cleaners. Just a little effort will soon return the surface of Corian® to mint condition.
If the worst happens and you crack the acyrilic, more often than not this damage can be repaired onsite.
