Benefits of Corian Wash Troughs
Corian is one of the first solid surface materials that has had extensive use since it was created by DuPont in the 1960s. While it is suitable for kitchens surfaces, and any other countertop surface, using it for troughs has several benefits.
Wash troughs tend to take up a lot more area than regular vanity units with basins or sinks, so choosing a lower-cost material such as Corian is a wise option to keep overall expenses down.
Other benefits of Corian wash troughs in bathrooms include:
- Easy repair: It is simple to repair Corian or a small piece of it, so any damage can become almost invisible through sanding and buffing if there is an issue.
- Thermoformable: As a man-made material it is possible to produce Corian with precise and complex shapes or designs, which gives it a considerable advantage over other materials such as stone as it is much faster to install.
- Safe and environmentally friendly: Choosing ethical materials for your washroom installation is an increasing concern in many designs. Corian is free of heavy metals and conforms to many European safety standards.
A real perk of Corian is the hygiene it provides. Because it is so non-porous and resists almost anything that touches its surface it is extremely easy to clean and can withstand many harsh cleaning chemicals. This makes it a good choice for industrial and medical settings where effective hygiene is essential.
Choosing a trough in your washroom has many advantages for hygiene too, so pairing this design with Corian materials helps maximise hygiene levels. A trough provides a communal handwashing space that is simple to clean and also causes minimal splashing while offering complete drainage.
Where are Corian Wash Troughs Useful?
Areas where a Corian wash trough can be advantageous include:
- hospitals, surgeries or other medical settings
- garages and mechanics
- schools or colleges, particularly in science labs or sport facilities
- public spaces and washrooms
Although Corian has the potential for almost unlimited use, these are some common settings where a low-cost and highly-durable material is particularly beneficial.

FAQs and Useful Information
The following are some frequently asked questions about Corian, wash troughs and the services we provide:
Is Corian more expensive than granite?
No. Corian is cheaper than granite. Although granite and Corian do not diverge so much on price in terms of materials, installation takes considerably longer. The difficulty and time it takes to install granite will usually make it a much more expensive choice.
Can you put a hot pan on Corian?
Corian is what we call ‘heat resistant’ and not ‘heatproof’, so it is important to minimise any high temperatures on the surface. This is not an issue for bathrooms, but kitchen installations using the material will require pads or alternative surfaces if they have high exposure to heat regularly.
What is Corian made of?
The specific materials in Corian are acrylic polymer and a substance called alumina trihydrate.
Is Corian safe?
Yes. Corian has extensive safety certifications from a wide variety of regulatory bodies. It is non-toxic, non-allergenic and suitable for many different settings.
