Elements by Durcon is officially launching in the DFW market in Texas, where it is also manufactured (about 200 miles from Dallas in Taylor).Â The eco-friendly surface is made with a proprietary blend of at least 10% post-consumer recycled glass, natural quartz minerals, and resin to create a low-VOC material that’s solid, non-porous,Â and “never requires sealing,” according to Durcon.
The material carries GREENGUARD certification for indoor air quality, SCS certification for the claim of 10% post-consumer recycled glass, and NSF 51 certification for food contact. It may also contribute toward LEED credits in various areas.
Elements is made in the USA, 100% recyclable, and can be recycled through Durcon’s Dust-to-Dust program.Â Basically, when the material is at the end of its useful life, fill out the form, ship the surface to Durcon, and Durcon will recycle it at no extra charge.
After the launch in Dallas and Fort Worth, Elements will be available in San Francisco and Toronto later this year, in 2012.Â It’s perfect for use in kitchens, baths and other high-traffic surface design applications.
