Longevity and aesthetics are two of the most important aspects when the time comes to choose office meeting tables. While traditional materials like wood and metal provide good durability and has the potential to be very aesthetically pleasing, few materials can compete with the quality and versatility of Corian® and HI-MACS®.
Corian® tables, are made from an original material created by E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company. Composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate (ATH), a material derived from bauxite ore, Corian® products are non-porous, stain resistant and easily repairable and renewable.
Another handy feature of Corian® tables is that the material is thermoformable. Corian® becomes flexible when heated which means that it can be shaped and moulded into virtually any shape you need. Desks made from this material are also seamless. In the fabrication process, joints can be made invisible by joining the relevant pieces with Corian’s own colour-matched two-part acrylic epoxy. The pieces are clamped tightly together in order to express any excess adhesive. After the adhesive dries, the area is sanded and polished to create a seamless joint. This seamless appearance is a signature characteristic of the material and adds to the end product’s clean aesthetics which can also be combined with laminate, veneer, glass, steel or eco-friendly ‘concreate’ a polished sheet material of air cured concrete combined with layers of recycled textile to achieve the look and feel you desire.
HI-MACS® is also an outstanding solid surface material. A delicate composition of acrylic, minerals and natural pigments that combine to create a smooth, non-porous, thermoformable and visually seamless surface. The material meets the highest standards for quality in all aspects: material performance, fabrication, functionality and hygiene. Thanks to its quality and the outstanding flexibility in fabrication and design, HI-MACS® offers countless advantages, like being scratch, fire and water resistant, over conventional materials.
