Materials & Finishes: Synthetic Solid Surfaces

What is a Synthetic Solid Surface?

Synthetic solid surfaces consist of a blend of natural materials and pure acrylic polymer, which creates a smooth and seamless surface. Solid surfaces can be used in an incredible variety of different ways such as: kitchen benchtops, vanity tops, custom built furniture, wall claddings (both internal and external), and even to create sinks, bath tubs, etc. Solid surfaces are warm to the touch and can be created in a huge variety of colours, textures, shapes and sizes.
