Solid Surface Material

Solid Surface Material

Solid surface material is a “New Generation” mineral material consisting of approximately one third acrylic resin (polymethyl methacrylate or PMMA) and 5% natural pigments. Its main constituent, comprising 70%, is the natural mineral aluminium hydroxide (ATH) obtained from bauxite (aluminium ore).

The material used in the manufacture of our ReZina washtroughs sets new standards in terms of environmentally-friendly building utilising a minimum of 12% recycled material, dry weight, for its manufacture. (*certified by Scientific Certification Systems registration SCMS-MC-01491 2008-2010) and up to a maximum of 41% recycled content (* certified by LG Hausys Europe GmbH, Frankfurt am Main 2010). These materials have additionally been certified as “outstanding” by the Korea Clean Air Association.

Exact recycled content varies as different mineral contents for differing finishes contain varying quantities of recycled material.

These materials are used for our standard colour range and the full HI-MACS® colour range.  HI-MACS® Eden enables buildings to obtain up to 2 credits in the following LEED categories:

  • Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)
  • LEED IEQ 4.1: Materials with minimal emissions, adhesives and sealants (1 credit)
  • Materials & Resources (MR)
  • LEED MR 4.1:   Materials with a recycled content of more than 10% (1 credit)
  • LEED MR 4.2:   Materials with a recycled content of more than 20% (2 credits)

We can also manufacture using DuPont™ Corian® material and this has also been certified by SCS as containing between 6% and 20% recycled materials. This material is also eligible for LEED credit and has been fully tested and certified by several organisations in the USA.

The solid surface material is formed into our ReZina range of wash troughs using a two-stage thermal curing process giving the material superb strength and durability characteristics. After initial moulding and curing the wash troughs can then be drilled to provide tap holes as required. The units are then given a final sanding and polish to achieve a high quality finish.

ReZina washtroughs can be supplied in a wide range of colours but as standard our wash troughs are supplied in white. Wall mounted units are supplied with facia panels which can be in the same colour is the trough itself or in a contrasting colour. Many other colours are available (please enquire) so that a ReZina trough can be matched to your precise décor needs.

The troughs are supplied in standard lengths or made to measure up to 3000mm in length. Wall mounted troughs are supplied with wall mounting brackets and all troughs are supplied with unslotted flush grated waste fittings.

Due to the wide range of options available, ReZina troughs require 3-4 weeks lead time to delivery as each one is made to order.

Our products are tested and certified to meet applicable standards. Not all products are covered by the same standards.
Products maunfactured outside the EU may have been tested to local standards which may meet or exceed EU standards.
