Achieve Sustainable Design Without Compromising Performance
Sustainable Design without Compromising Performance:
Now, you can create stunning residential and commercial spaces with a smaller environmental footprint.
More and more homeowners, designers, and architects are searching for sustainable design products. At DuPont, we’re innovating, so you can do that without sacrificing durability or beauty. The DuPont™ Corian® Terra Collection is made with a minimum of 6% pre-consumer-recycled content — and some colors contain significantly more. The DuPont™ Zodiaq® Terra Collection is the same sophisticated quartz surface as ever, but now its composition includes a percentage of post-consumer- recycled content. (Post-consumer content percentages vary by color.) Both collections may help your next project earn points under the LEED® Building Rating System™ in a variety of categories.*
In addition, these non-porous surfaces, when properly cleaned, do not promote the growth of mold and mildew, making them ideal choices for homes, healthcare and food preparation facilities, schools, and offices. At DuPont, we’re always working with homeowners, designers and architects to discover sustainable new building solutions.
