  • Solid surface is one of the most repairable materials available. 

  • It is composed of acrylic resin, polyester resin or a combination of the two (30%-40%) that is then combined with filler (60%-70%), color pigments and catalyst. 

  • Solid surface is a nonporous material that resists stains and bacteria, promoting a cleaner and more sanitary surface.
