Question question about corian countertop

We need to replace our laminate kitchen counter top. We are considering corian counter top. We have a fairly new, very nice, very large Kohler drop in cast iron sink. The sink weighs 130 lbs. My question is will there be any problem with Corian holding up this much weight? I sent dupont an email and received a vague answer "with proper installation". Would like to get some insight and opinions. Thanks very much.

"With Proper Installation" is correct.
The certified installers will add additional support if required. Wood strips running front to back of cabinet will do, however brackets such as the ones linked to below are ideal.
