Solid Surface and Stone Rein are considered to be man-made Marble stone, artificial Marble stone, but they have difference in Components.
1) Stone resin: gel-coat, unsaturated polyester resin, calcium carbonate.
The application of gel-coat is very wide, not only Sanitary ware, like Shipbuilding yachts, lifeboats, patrol boats, etc .; gel coat applications in many industries such as transportation, construction, entertainment, medical equipment housings, billboards, telephone kiosks and security kiosks.
But it is just a coating on the surface, if it is damaged, you will see the material inside, calcium carbonate is relatively rough, and its color is not the same with gel coat, you can only use gel-coat to repair it. The advantage is that its stain resistance will be better than solid surface.
2) Solid surface (Corian): Aluminum Hydroxide, acrylic resin, natural foam resin.
It is everywhere in the construction industry. The solid surface has more smooth touch and durable, since the inside and the outside material is the same, so it’s easier to maintenance in daily life used.
