Since its introduction in 2015, the DuPont™ Corian® Charging Surface has been powering up smart devices in hotels, restaurants and homes around the world. Now, with the introduction of the Qi compatible iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8S models, Corian® Charging Surface offers a convenient, stylish and inconspicuous alternative to standard cords and wires that is more effortless than ever. Thanks to the built-in Qi receivers in iPhone 8 models, an external receiver such as a charging ring is no longer required. The new models can be charged by placing them directly onto the charging spot on the Corian® Charging Surface.

While wireless charging is a new concept for some, DuPont Protection Solutions (DuPont) has been an early adopter in this technology. The “dual mode” Corian® Charging Surface is a forward compatible device and is cleverly designed to work with both the Qi and PMA wireless charging standard. The device is installed just underneath the surface of any Corian® solid surface or quartz product from Corian® Design by a certified fabricator. The transmitter is specifically engineered to transmit through Corian® Design surfaces with magnetic induction, which safely and effectively transfers power from the charger to a smart device.

“Architects, designers, and business owners looking to enhance customer experiences through the convenience of wireless charging have every color and pattern of our stylish, durable and stain resistant surfaces available to create spaces with this wireless charging functionality,” said Julie Eaton, global business director for Corian® Design at DuPont.

The Corian® Charging Surface is a smart alternative to standard charging pads in places where cleanliness is of utmost importance and wires are not practical. Users will enjoy the same charging speeds as a typical wired charger simply by placing their phone on the Corian® Charging Surface in the designated spot.

“Our functionally designed surfaces can stand up to commercial grade cleaners commonly used in commercial environments, in addition the charging device is undermounted creating a seamless surface area where there is no place for germs to hide. The convenience of wireless charging coupled with ease-of-maintenance is especially ideal for high-traffic areas,” added Eaton.
