Solid surface is a 100% man-made product, which means great diversity when it comes to color and texture variations.
It is made of resin, an acrylic or modified polyester; alumina trihydrate, a filler which allows for a Class 1 Fire Rating; color pigments; and added particles that give a mottled, veined, or textured look to the surface.
Solid surface is machinable and can be cut into just about any shape imaginable. It also can be heated and molded. It is the only material that features molded sinks seamed directly to the countertop with no gaps or caulks.
