Solid Surface - For Earth Day and Beyond
Earth Day has arrived once again! As many are thinking about ways to support environmental protection, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of how one of our favorite products, Solid Surface contributes to environmentally responsible designs and projects.
Why Solid Surface Materials Are Easy On The Environment:
- Durable and won't need to be replaced for a long time.
- Does not react readily with other chemicals or elements, which means they have low impact on both indoor and outdoor environments.
- Nontoxic, with virtually no off-gassing of VOCs.
- Easily refinished if necessary, adding to their sustainable value.
To go even further, many Solid Surface manufacturers have even created specialty collections to their product lines with additional earth friendly benefits.
For example, the DuPont™ Corian® Terra Collection is made with a minimum of 6% pre-consumer recycled content, and some colors contain significantly more.
HI-MACS® Eden Collection contains a wide selection of colors, 12% to 40% of which comes from recycling. This collection is certified by the Scientific Certification System (SCS) and allows a building to earn 1 or 2 LEED credits.
Earth Day only lasts for 24 hours, but choosing Solid Surface materials for use in your next project will result in environmental benefits that will last for years to come.
