How Do I Remove Scratches Fropm My Corian Counter Tops?


I have newer corian (2008) counter tops that have minute scratches from constant dragging of light objects on them (such as this lap top ...lol) what is the best way to get them out?

No problem. I had one of my carpenters tell me it was really easy to repair but I'd never seen it done. Seems pretty simple - sand, buff, polish.

Depending on how deep the scratches are and the finish, gloss vs matte will determine how difficult it is. Light surface scratches on a matte finish Corian or other solid surface countertop can often be removed/blended with a 3M pad/and or various finer grits of sandpaper in a circular motion without breaking out the power tools. Deeper scratches and gloss finish still aren't too difficult but definitely best done with random orbital sander/polisher.
