Apollo Magna Worktops

Apollo Magna

Apollo Magna solid surface worktops are stain, water and impact resistant and offer seamless joints with the added benefit that any offending marks and scratches can be simply ‘polished out’. There’s a choice of great colours and Apollo Magna, whilst only 6mm thick, will give you a worksurface that looks and feels like a much more expensive 12mm solid surface material. All Apollo Magna work surfaces come with a 10 year warranty, are completely hygienic and easy to maintain.

Important considerations for Apollo Magna

Pigmentation and Wear

Dark heavily pigmented colours will show scratches, wear and tear more readily than light or textured colours and should not be used in high traffic areas (these colours require a disclaimer form to be completed) Please be aware that Black Velvet is now manufactured in Acrylic, which is much less prone to show marks and scratches.

Veined Colours

Some colours and styles will contain veining, which is where a style contains swirls, lines, or patterns within the material. The manufacturing processes involved in creating these styles ensure that each piece is random to avoid obvious repetition in your worksurface. As such, please be advised that when purchasing a variant with veining, the final pieces installed may vary from the images displayed on this website.

Apollo Magna Worktop Technical Specifications

Apollo® Magna is manufactured from mineral filled polyacrylate/polyester resins. With superior innovative designs, enduring applications and excellent long-term performance, Apollo® Magna is ideal in both residential and commercial environments. Apollo® solid surface has proved itself to be a remarkably durable material; it cannot delaminate and stands up well to daily wear and tear.

Joints

Apollo® Magna has inconspicuous and unobtrusive joints, and due to the level of pigment in the material, give the overall appearance of a seamless worksurface.

Tolerance

Tolerance in Apollo® Magna is ±2mm

Thermal expansion

Due to thermal expansion Apollo® Magna can expand up to 1mm per metre. A gap of at least 3mm should be left at each end of the worktop when fitted and filled with decorators caulk. When Apollo® Magna is joined to other materials (such as glass, steel or wood) an elastic type of adhesive, for example polyurethane is required for expansion.

This is required under terms of the product warranty.

Overhangs and supports

Any overhang of Apollo® Magna extending more than 300mm must be supported. Apollo® Magna should be supported every 600mm.

Hob and Sink Cutouts

Hobs must be integrated into an Apollo® Magna worksurface according to specified guidelines. Where an Apollo® Magna splash back or wall cladding is installed a gap of 50mm (minimum) is required behind an electric hob or 100mm (minimum) for a gas hob. A ‘breakfront’ may be necessary to accommodate this requirement. There must be a minimum of 50mm from the cutout to the front of the worktop and a gap of 120mm between heated cutouts.

Upstands

Apollo® Magna upstands are fixed on site, with Apollo® Magna glue or silicone. Where there are large variations in the wall profile, there may be gaps between the wall and the upstand. Plastering or tiling should ideally be completed after the worksurface installation.

Scratches

Apollo® Magna is scratch resistant but not scratch proof; the use of chopping boards and/or pastrymates is recommended. Dark, heavily pigmented colours will show scratches, dust and ordinary wear and tear more readily than lighter, textured forms.

Staining

While most tough stains can be buffed away, a level of care and maintenance is required, as spills should be cleaned up immediately.

Repairable

Apollo® Magna can easily be repaired. Using an ordinary abrasive cleaner and a scouring pad the surface may be fully restored to its original appearance.

Hygienic

Apollo® solid surface is a non-porous material and is naturally resistant to mould, bacteria and mildew.

Stainless Steel Sinks

Please specify the preferred undermounting of Stainless Steel Sinks. Silicone sealant may be rendered ineffective when plumbing the sink in, it is important that the sink is re-sealed by the plumber, or the 12 months guarantee will be invalid if the work is not carried out.

Points of note

Hob flange needs to sit on aluminium thermal insulation tape around cut-out, to avoid conducting too much heat and causing cracks in the worktop. Can be made in blanks to adjust on site without compromising any of the above – oversize on the joints then trim to suit.

Drainers are only 3mm deep and 10mm wide.

Some colours have different levels of pigmentation (particles). This may lead to a variation in the aesthetic appearance.

Free installation training.

No templating means a saving in time and cost.

Rear edges of the chipboard base material of the worktop, should be sealed with a chipboard sealer. A fine layer of dust is inevitable for up to 24 hours after installation. We have fully qualified and vastly experienced installation teams throughout the UK to provide you with an excellent fitting service, if required.

Warranty

Sheridan offer a 10 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty on Apollo® Magna.

Apollo Magna Worktop Appearance

Please note Apollo® Magna is batch processed and shades may vary between batches due to Apollo® Magna being a blank product.

As with most solid surface products, joints in Apollo® Magna are inconspicuous, seamless and homogeneous.
