Is this a solid surface material like Corian or Sawnstone?

Michael,

This is not a solid surface product as this is manufactured with a polyester resin vs. an acrylic resin. Solid surface also extracts air from the product during the casting process as well to make their product more dense as well. 

The Onyx Collection product would be considered a cultured granite or cultured Onyx product. Polyester gel-coat, polyester resin,  and an Alumina hydrate filler.

Cheers!

Thanks Adam

So is onyx a solid materiel meaning is it solid all the way through or is it built up in layers? What can you tell me about the longevity of the material compare to a solid surface material?

Michael, 

Yes you are correct - it is solid product all the way through. If you order some samples (free) you would be able to see this. 

As for the longevity/durability: its about the same as a solid surface material. 

Cheers! 

Adam
