We think our material is pretty extraordinary. But, we might be accused of being a bit biased so let’s talk about the specs.
It’s composed of two-thirds natural minerals and one-third high-performance acrylic resin and pigments.
The result is a material that is quite “stone-like” yet able to be shaped with standard woodworking tools. This ease of manipulation allows for a bunch of cool and creative opportunities! All in a dazzling array of shapes and decors. Each equipped with some unique, and useful benefits that set it apart from most surfacing materials.
Is your curiosity piqued? Cool, we thought so.

Frequently asked questions:
How long has Durasein been around?
We’ve been in business since 1999 and selling in the USA since 2005. Our Durasein brand was launched in 2016, and rebranded in 2019. We’re currently one of the fastest growing solid surface brands in the industry.
Why Durasein solid surface?
It’s beautiful. It’s bacterial resistant. It can be seamed together to create virtually any size. And on top of all the features and benefits we’ve already mentioned, our 100% acrylic solid surface material is incredibly pliable, durable and renewable. That means you can shape it into almost anything, it can stand up to whatever you dish out and it can be resurfaced to like-new condition with just a little bit of elbow grease.
What is Durasein made of?
Our extraordinary material is made up of two-thirds alumina trihydrate (derived from bauxite, a natural ore) and one-third high performance 100% acrylic resin and pigments. Due to this high mineral content, our material is incredibly dense and “stone-like”, yet able to be fabricated with standard woodworking tools. And it’s totally thermoformable.
Is Durasein solid surface safe from stains and heat?
Scratches. Impact. Heat. Fire. Our solid surface can weather it all, and we’ve undergone the strict stain and chemical resistance testing (CSA B45.5-17/IAPMO Z124-2017) to prove it. Did we mention, our material is renewable, repairable, recyclable, and reusable, too?
What about mold and bacteria?
We don’t want any part of the nasty stuff, and we know you don’t, either! That’s why our material is bacterial resistant and resistant to mold and mildew, along with being food safe, non-toxic, non-porous, and low VOC.
How does Durasein stack up to the competition?
Durasein is a premium, 100% acrylic solid surface material, putting it in the top tier of all solid surface products. We’re very proud of our performance specs.
