Innovative surfacing solutions in dark colours delivering high-performance, elegance, functionality, reliability, durability, hygiene. There is an exciting new option available for industrial companies, architects, designers and consumers looking for solid surface solutions in dark colours offering high performance, elegance, reliability and hygiene.

Within its long-term growth initiative “Endless Evolution”, DuPont is once again setting a new, superior standard in advanced surfacing materials for interior design and architecture: the research and development laboratories of DuPont have developed an innovative manufacturing solution called DeepColour™ Technology (a patent pending invention) enabling the creation of dark solid surfaces which offer deeper, more intense and durable colour, improved wear performance and easier thermoforming, seaming and finishing.

The DeepColour™ Technology has been used by DuPont to produce four black tones: DuPont™ Corian® Deep Nocturne, a classic, solid, super-versatile jet black; DuPont™ Corian® Deep Anthracite, a lustrous black immersed with minute flecks of silver; DuPont™ Corian® Deep Black Quartz, an infinite black landscape offset by a vivid array of ivory specks; DuPont™ Corian® Deep Night Sky, a midnight black with a galaxy of translucent particles. The four colours of DuPont™ Corian® made with DeepColour™ Technology are commercially available in Europe, Middle East and Africa as of 1st February 2014.

“In summer 2013, we launched the Endless Evolution initiative for DuPont™ Corian®, introducing new marketing tools and on-line services for industry, specifiers and consumers. Now we are introducing our DeepColour™ Technology, a science and technology based innovation applied to the dark colours of DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces. We have used it to make four black tones with an enhanced combination of beauty and functionality. The Endless Evolution initiative and its generation of new products are a further, clear demonstration of our strong commitment to the solid surface market, to the competitiveness of all our customers and to the satisfaction of end users,” says Jean-Yves Bach, business director of DuPont Building Innovations, Europe Middle-East and Africa.

“DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces are transforming interior design and architecture, thanks to their special combination of properties and performance. Through the DeepColour™ Technology, we propose a superior solution – in terms of fabrication, aesthetics and functionality – in advanced surfacing materials in dark colours. Using this technology, we will offer new, versatile solutions to all those who are looking for modern surfacing materials in dark colours. And 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 program,” says Eddy Verschueren, Global Technical Manager for DuPont™ Corian®, DuPont Building Innovations.
