Diore Solid Surface® is the registered brand name for a range of elegant solid surface worktops matching, and even surpassing, the chic qualities and appearance of polished solid marble and granite. Diore Solid Surface is a unique top-end solid surface worktop that has been specially developed by Worktops.net to offer all the benefits and superior qualities of the leading brands, and manufactured at the same high standards, but can be offered at a more affordable price.
What is a Diore Solid Surface worktop made from?
Only the highest quality natural minerals, including top grade marble and granite is used to manufacture Diore Solid Surface work surfaces. Gibbsite, Bayerite, Doyleite and Nordstrandite crystallites, collectively known as Bauxite (from which aluminium is extracted) are the main ingredients of these raw minerals and are sourced from leading quarries around the world.
Using the most advanced technology available in the 21st century, these minerals are pulverised and then reconstituted and strengthened, through a highly specialised process of heat and pressure in a vacuum, and by adding acrylic polymer resin in a ratio of about 66% minerals to 34% polymer resins, giving it the same stylish appearance, but even greater flexibility, elasticity, resilience and durability than natural marble or granite.
How does a Diore Solid Surface worktop differ from a Natural Stone worktop?
Diore Solid Surface worktops are solid, high-density, non-porous surfaces that emulate, and even improve, the natural beauty, quality and chic atmosphere of marble, granite or other polished stone. Diore Solid Surface is completely non-porous, with nowhere for bacteria or dirt to take root or accumulate. If it looks clean, it really is clean!
Diore Solid Surface work surfaces are renewable and inherently environmentally friendly, both in the constitution of the minerals and in the manufacturing and fabrication process. The Worktops.net state-of-the art, purpose-built factory utilises the best technology for recycling of water and materials, air purification, generation of energy and disposal of waste materials.
In addition, Diore Solid Surface worktops are available in a huge variety of compatible colours and textures, which are more consistent than natural stone, even across different slabs. Unlike natural stone, Diore Solid Surface can be shaped and seamlessly joined. This provides far grander design possibilities, greater versatility and a much greater degree of hygiene.
Because of its greater resilience and flexibility, it can be fitted in longer lengths than solid stone in its natural state. The manufacturing process makes Diore Solid Surface worktops much more resistant to scratches and stains they are therefore also easier to clean and maintain than solid stone and damage can also be repaired. Minor damage can be repaired by the home-owner without specialist equipment and repair and maintenance kits can be obtained from Worktops.net
Can Diore Solid Surface worktops only be used in the kitchen?
Because of its versatility, durability and resilience, Diore Solid Surface worktops are eminently suited as worktops in stylish kitchens, bathrooms and serving areas, giving it countless benefits over virtually any other surface.
What is more, Diore Solid Surface can be used successfully as high-end wall cladding and even flooring, to either create the effect of marble or granite, or in a range of scores of different bright pigmented colours to emulate polished stone, in virtually any room in a house or business.
Its solid, non-porous surface makes it the perfect solution for highly sterile areas such as hospitals, surgeries and laboratories and sensitive areas where germs can easily be spread, such as airport and hotel check-in counters. It is extremely hygienic and is easy to clean and maintain and will endure and remain fashionable for generations.
