Exterior Cladding

Exterior wall cladding with DuPont™ Corian® solid surface gives you the freedom, flexibility, and quality to bring your brilliant designs to life.

Experience Virtually Unlimited Design Flexibility

Let your creativity run free with an imaginative range of colors and aesthetics. Create the exact shapes and textures that fulfil your design requirements. For illuminated effects, take advantage of such features as translucent colors for backlit applications.

Beauty Meets Versatility

Durable, long-lasting, and easy to clean, Corian® exterior wall cladding is as practical as it is beautiful. It contributes to sustainable building, and its wide spectrum of colors offer superior color stability. It also offers low moisture absorption and resistance to stains, environmental pollutants, detergents, humidity, and freeze-thaw conditions.

Corian® solid surface also offers inconspicuous seams, and can be easily sanded and cleaned to restore its original appearance. Even graffiti can be removed through standard pressure washing with baking-soda-based cleaning agents.

The Right Choice for Facades

You can fabricate DuPont™ Corian® solid surface for a wide range of architectural applications, including column covers, soffits and fascia, and a variety of exterior details. You can form complex shapes with Corian® solid surface, without the weight and cost of conventional materials. You can also form coping, cap pieces, corner returns, and other areas of critical water exposure from individual sheets, to minimize joints and areas of potential migration or leakage.

Available Colors and Dimensions

Many exterior cladding materials fade or discolor in time due to weathering, but in many cases the obtained natural patina may be acceptable or even desirable (e.g. copper roofing). Individual DuPont™ Corian® exterior cladding material colors change differently and most often exhibit changes in gloss and whitening which can be renewed with cleaning and/or sanding. These changes are more obvious in saturated, chromatic and dark colors and least obvious in whites, lighter colors and many of the earth tones. Ultimately it is up to the end user to determine if these characteristics are acceptable in the application.

The following material usage recommendations are based on ASTM G7 and ASTM G155 standards. DuPont™ Corian® exterior cladding material colors are grouped into different categories based on their color stability in exterior cladding applications. The selection below represents colors that are expected to meet architectural guidelines for color change of less than 5∆Eab units over 10 years (ASTM D2244). Glacier White and Designer White are predicted to have color change of less than 2∆Eab units over 10 years.
