Acrylic Solid Surface
Most solid surface materials are made with three main ingredients, a powder filler, particulates, and a resin that bonds them together, along with other various additives like pigments (color), UV absorbers, and catalyst (used as the hardener). These are combined and then poured or injected into molds that make either sheets or shaped products like sinks. The filler most widely used in solid surface is alumina trihydrate (ATH). ATH is refined from bauxite ore, a mined form of clay. Acrylic and polyester are the two main types of resins used. A pure acrylic-based resin produces a sheet that is thermoformable. This means it can be heated and bent into a new shape and retains no memory of its previous shape.
Solid surface is truly the ultimate countertop surface. In fact, there are many characteristics that make all solid surface products stand out from the rest. To start with they are all solid homogeneous sheets (the color and particulates go all the way through the sheet), and even though the material is very hard it is still very machinable. Solid Surface is stain and chemical resistant, fire resistant, and best of all it is repairable. There are no grout lines or epoxy joints (as with natural stone) to catch dirt and germs. And because solid surface is virtually non-porous, most bacteria and fungi simply cannot grow on it. The salmonella that will find its way into most other surfaces will not last on solid surface. It is a decorative surface that has a very smooth feel and seamless beauty that is unsurpassed.
