CORIAN® BY DUPONT
Numerous manufacturer's produce "solid surface materials" that are commonly used for kitchen and bathroom countertops and sinks. Corian is manufactured by Dupont® and was the earliest solid surface material on the market. Due to its resistance to moisture, and renewable surface, "solid surface" material is ideal for use in an outdoor environment and was chosen for the Pet Plaques & Headstones for this reason. Corian will never fade, corrode, discolor or warp in any outdoor conditions or climate. Our Corian Plaques & Headstones are ideal for placement outdoors on your pet's gravesite, or at a pet cemetery (with authorization). The 1/4" Corian is ideal for hanging on a wall, or with an added stake to place outdoors. 1/2" Corian , somewhat heavier, may also be placed on a wall or outdoors as a grave marker.
We know of no other engraving service that custom engraves Pet Plaques & Headstones on a material as durable and attractive as Corian®. Not only is Corian one of the most durable materials for outdoor use, but its beautiful polished surface gives the appearance of real granite. Custom Engraving Services also applies a "rough edge" to the Corian plaques to simulate real granite, or a more formal beveled edge.
Our Corian Plaques & Headstones are hand-engraved with an ultra high-speed tool that produces grooved lettering (or line art graphic) which is then inlaid with black or green enamel paint and guaranteed not to fade in outdoor use. For our Plaques Headstones, we offer the Sandstone (light tan color, with brown speckles, or Dusk (light grey, with black speckles), or White Corian shades only (White currently available for 8" x 10" Plaques/Headstones only at this time)
Note: Dusk Corian (light grey with black speckles) - is a discontinued Corian color by DuPont. As such, we must impose a $10 surcharge for this color, until supplies are replenished from another manufacturer of solid surface materials.
