DuPont To Embed Wireless Charging In Corian Countertops

DuPont Building Innovations has joined the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) to develop embedded wireless charging technology into its popular Corian countertops.

PMA’s efforts have brought embedded wireless charging into public and commercial spaces around the New York City area such as in Starbucks stores, Regis Hair Salons, Delta Airlines terminals, Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn under the banner of its Power 2.0 initiative, but the embeds are essentially Duracell Powermat charging pads countersunk into tabletops.

DuPont’s entry in the category may open the door for other furniture and design materials manufacturers to consider including wireless charging in household and commercial construction and installations.
