Introducing DuPont™ Corian® Charging Surface
Durable, stain resistant, easy-to-clean – every stylish hue and pattern of Corian® is available for wireless charging integration. Not only does its nearly seamless form provide virtually limitless design options, Corian® Charging Surface is the perfect addition to modern smart homes, retail environments and more.
How does it power up?
Just below the Corian® Charging Surface, a transmitter transfers energy wirelessly to a receiver within or attached to your smart device. The proprietary Powermatrix app tracks the charging process. Plus, the surface is smart – charging stops when your device has reached maximum battery capacity. It’s the ideal solution for kitchens, hospitality areas – anywhere!
Wirelessly charge smart devices in your business or home:
- Select a Corian® surface colour.
- Decide where in your designs, a charging surface(s) will work best.
- SCF Interiors will install the device(s) along with the surface installation.
- Once installed, place your wireless enabled device (or connect a wireless charging ring for non-wireless enabled devices) over the charging spot and power up begins automatically. Charging stops when battery is full.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does wireless charging work?
Wireless power, also known as inductive coupling, uses narrow magnetic fields that are a natural part of how electrical current moves through wires. It starts by creating a magnetic field around a hidden electrical coil. The receiving device has a hidden coil that can receive the magnetic energy created, thereby transferring power wirelessly.
What do I need to charge my device?
Some devices already include built-in support for wireless charging. If your device does not have this capability, you can enable your device by plugging a Powermat® wireless charging ring into its charging port or by using a case specifically designed for wireless charging.
Does DuPont™ offer an adapter for my existing devices?
DuPont™ offers a Powermat® Wireless Charging Ring which acts as an adapter. It comes in several different variations depending on the type of device you have. The Ring is plugged into your device’s charging port and acts as a receiver of the magnetic energy created by the technology embedded in the DuPont™ Corian® solid surface.
Is the Charging Unit available for residential or commercial applications?
Both. For all applications, we offer the Individual Wireless Charging unit. This is a single charging unit that, once installed, is a plug-and-play system that works instantly for those who are ready to power up. With the ability to install one or a series of units for multiple users, the Individual unit creates a seamless solution for most settings.
Is wireless charging faster than wired charging?
Wireless charging receivers will charge your phone at approximately the same rate as wired charging.
Can you charge other devices besides smartphones?
Yes, DuPont™ Corian® Charging Unit uses technology that is scalable and versatile. It can be used to charge a range of devices depending upon the specific makeup of the wireless charging spots. Most wireless charging spots are initially configured to support smartphones and other devices, such as small tablets. Larger tablets may charge, but at a much slower rate.
Can a laptop be charged?
No. A laptop requires higher energy to charge so it either may fail to charge at all or will charge at a much slower rate. However, Corian® Charging Unit has scalable technology and has the ability to upgrade to laptop compatibility when this technology becomes available.
How close does my device need to be to the charging spot to charge wirelessly?
The device must be directly on top of the charging spot. This ensures that the transmitter in the charging spot and the receiver in the device can transmit power.
Can I use my phone while its charging?
Yes, provided it is within range of the charging spot.
How many devices can be charged at once?
One device can be charged per charging spot.
