Guide to Finding Corian® Glacier White and Other Solid White Solid Surface Material

Did you know that White is the most sought after color of the many hundreds of colors and patterns of solid surface? White is not only classic and aesthetically bright, it also provides a wonderful visual representation of solid surface’s naturally antiseptic nature.

While DuPont’s Corian® Glacier White is one of the more widely known and highly popular versions of white, there are also many other equally desirable white solid surface options available that may satisfy the needs of your project.  We thought it may be useful to put together this handy guide that presents the various white options available through

DuPont Corian® Glacier White

Although Glacier White is not part of the standard stocked product offering at, it does frequently come into the overstock “full” and “partial sheet” inventory.  When items do become available, they frequently sell out fast. We suggest if you are interested in an item you either immediately grab it, or contact us to place a hold on it for you.

Select Grade Glacier White

The next best alternative to DuPont Corian® Glacier White is the Select Grade. Select Grade Glacier White is 100% acrylic solid surface made in the USA and matches the color of Corian® Glacier White. Select Grade is material that did not meet the manufacturer’s precise specifications and is made available under our overstock full and partial sheet inventory.  However, the majority of these ‘imperfections’ cannot be detected to an untrained eye, if even then. (Learn more about Select Grade.)

The primary benefits of Select Grade are that it is still a very high quality material offered at a considerably less expensive price.  Even more dramatic discounts are available when you purchase the material in 8-pack quantities or more, when available.  Both ½” & ¼” thick material are frequently listed in the overstock inventory.

Formica Noce Travertine

Formica Corporation Introduces 13 New Patterns to Solid Surfacing Collection

Formica Corporation, a global leader in surfacing design and innovation, has introduced 13 new Formica solid surfacing patterns, adding a new range of quartz-like patterns and some contemporary shimmer to the brand’s collection of smooth, seamless and nonporous solid surfacing products.

“We first introduced the Colorbox concept in 2010 to visually demonstrate how different surfacing materials, colors, textures and patterns can work together in commercial interiors”

Formica Corporation’s design team styled the latest patterns to coordinate with a variety of Formica® brand surfacing products, a concept dubbed Colorbox. “We first introduced the Colorbox concept in 2010 to visually demonstrate how different surfacing materials, colors, textures and patterns can work together in commercial interiors,” said Gerri Chmiel, Formica Corporation’s senior design manager. “The Colorbox concept allows the architecture and design community to confidently pair Formica® Solid Surfacing products with complementary high pressure laminate offerings.”

The 2013 Formica® Solid Surfacing introduction includes:

Luna – A small-scale, usable quartz-like pattern available in a full color range to coordinate with the brand’s recent high pressure laminate introductions.

  • 773 Luna Sail White – soft, warm white
  • 774 Luna Fossil – pale blue-green
  • 775 Luna Storm – cool, dark gray
  • 780 Luna Stone – mid-tone, warm taupe
  • 781 Luna Concrete – mid-tone, cool gray
  • 782 Luna Weather – dark, warm gray

Quartz – A larger-scale, quartz-like pattern with metallic particulates for added shimmer and depth.

  • 770 Bottle Glass Quartz – inspired by the colors of recycled glass, the bright white ground features large particulates of blue, brown and gray
  • 771 Café Quartz – soft caramel with large blue, translucent and metallic copper particulates
  • 772 Copper Quartz – warm gray with large white, gray and metallic copper particulates

Sparkle – Subtle, reflective white and gray architectural colors provide a contemporary alternative to basic solids.

  • 778 White Sparkle – warm white with a metallic dusting of cool silver mica
  • 779 Gray Sparkle – cool gray with a metallic dusting of cool silver mica

Travertine – Softly patterned Noce Travertine remains a staple in commercial and residential interiors alike, but the softness of the stone renders it difficult to use on horizontal surfaces. Noce Travertine offers the look of real travertine, with the durability of Formica® Solid Surfacing.

  • 777 Noce Travertine – a perfect blend of warm and cool; warm brown ground swirls with veins of cool gray and dark brown; gray and white particulates add interest and depth

Mirage – Tried and true speckled pattern introduced in new trend color of gray; rust brown warms the overall color

  • 773 Mirage – gray with warm rust-brown particulates

Chmiel revealed that the practice of mixing and matching of materials in commercial settings plays an important role in the company’s product development process. “One project incorporates countless surfacing materials, and we strive to introduce trend-forward, usable products that are desirable on their own, yet work well in unison to help designers achieve a desired design aesthetic. The usability and compatibility of these 13 new patterns underscores our commitment of being a design resource for our customers.”

Formica® Solid Surfacing is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute under the GREENGUARD Standard for Low-Emitting Products, including the requirements for Children & Schools.

Wilsonart Launches 2013 Solid Surface Collection, Inspired by Cityscapes

The beauty of Wilsonart® Solid Surface brings the glamour of the city lights indoors

Wilsonart Solid Surface Announces 2013 Colors

Wilsonart® Solid Surface released 8 new designs taking as their theme the rich textures,

surfaces and sparkle of the urban landscape. Cityscape, their choice of name for the collection, seeks to add drama and elegance to your residential and commercial space.

As a desirable and affordable alternative to granite and other stone surfaces, this Cityscape collection is sprinkled with quartz and mica like acrylic chips that provide a spark.

This glittery look allows it to easily play a starring role in your classically designed or modernistic space. Or, if it is used as cladding for a high-rise building next door, the cityscape out the windows of this elegant space takes on a new urban appeal.

Wilsonart Solid Surface is naturally resistant to fade, heat, bacteria, mold, mildew and most stains, and is, renewable and repairable. When solid surface sheets are joined together with solid surface adhesive, they become a seamless non porous surface which helps with compliance with NSF/ANSI Standard 51 food contact requirements, making solid surface one of the few surfaces that is safe for food contact and preparation.

Keeping food clean is almost as essential as having clean indoor air which it is also certified to have with their UL GreenGuard Gold certification.

The colors in the Cityscape collection are designed to complement a range of materials like wood, metal, glass and laminate making them the perfect backdrop for sleek and modern accessories in contemporary spaces.

The new colors include:

Garnet Glitz

Gold Glitz

Night Stars


Paris Fog

Chipped Chocolate

Maple Harvest

Avalanche Melange

Wilsonart Solid Surface is backed by a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty and is available at kitchen and bath dealers, home centers and local fabricators nationwide.
