How to Repair Solid Surface Countertop?

Currently, many solid surface for countertop (worktop) is outstanding, various brands and advantages offered. But on the basis of experience, to realize a luxurious, exclusive, robust and hygienic kitchen set, I recommend the Corian® solid surface brand of DuPont ™.

Corian ® is inherently “renewable” because it is solid and homogeneous all the way through. Most damage, including severe impact, heat or chemical damage, can usually be repaired on site to restore the original, smooth, hygienic solid surface integrity.

Guidelines for Easy Corian® Countertop Repair
Corian® is a remarkably durable material. However, in the event that a countertop does get lightly scratched, most repairs can be handled easily by the average homeowner.

Countertop Repair Technique — Removing Blotches
You may notice that the surface of your countertop is starting to look blotchy. Typically, this is caused by letting hard water dry on the surface, leaving behind a film of minerals. To remove blotchy appearance or fine scratches, follow these simple steps.

Pour some mild abrasive liquid cleanser, such as Soft Scrub®, on a damp sponge or cloth and rub over area, using small circular motions, from the front to the back, and then from side to side, overlapping the circles until the entire area has been cleaned.

Thoroughly rinse the countertop with clean water and wipe surface completely dry. Check to see if blotchiness is gone. If not, repeat procedure, applying more pressure on the sponge or rag.

Countertop Repair — Removing Fine Scratches
Because the solid beauty of Corian® solid surface goes all the way through the material, it can be sanded and renewed. You can remove minor cuts and scratches yourself by following these instructions.

  1. Wash (but do not dry) the area where the scratch is located, using the cleaning technique described above to remove any film on the surface, as this film may clog the abrasive pads.
  2. With the countertop surface still wet, start rubbing the scratched area with the peach-colored side of the cleaning pad. Use a light touch. Pressing too hard may actually leave deeper scratches. Rub over the scratch, using a straight-line motion.
  3. Periodically, switch rubbing direction ninety degrees. Rinse pad periodically during this process, to remove any built-up residue. Be sure all of the scratch is removed.
  4. Clean your countertop with water and dry thoroughly. Check to see if the sanded area blends with rest of countertop. Please note that the sanded area may not perfectly
