    How does corian hold up outside? Will it become brittle and crack like other plastics when exposed to UV light over a few years? I have a bunch of left over coutner tops from some lowes displays and I'm trying to figgure out some creative landscaping ideas? Any suggestions? I have 2.5 acres and thought I might do an outside kitchen with one really long counter top, and a couple of picnic tables.

    Make sure the Corian is acrylic not polyester, the acrylic is ok but the polyester will discolor.

    You should be fine with Corian outside. It'll get dirty and start to look bad, but a good cleaning should bring it back to life.

    We have Corian signs outside been there for over 5 years hot summers cold winters.  One has a crack but that's because a snowplow hit it.

    Sounds like an inferior product if you ask me.

    Brian:

    I thought I read "interior product". Oh, well here's this anyway.
