How to Patch Holes in Corian

Save

Corian is a common material used for countertops and stove tops. Because of its makeup, it has many other applications as well and further has the ability to be manipulated and sculpted. Created by DuPont, corian is often found in kitchens and comes in well over 100 different colors. Because of its brittle nature it is prone to cracking, splitting, scratches and even holes.

Things You'll Need

  • Extra corian
  • Grinder
  • Abrasive pad or sanding device
  • Clear epoxy glue

Wash the area around the hole. Using an abrasive pad sold specifically for corian countertops or the rougher side of a sponge, thoroughly clean around the hole. Try to buff out any scratches that may be present. Let the area dry.

Grind extra corian into sawdust. Make a small pile that will successfully fill the size of the hole.

Mix the sawdust with clear epoxy glue until you have created a smooth paste.

Fill the hole. Pack down enough of the paste so that the corian is level and even throughout.

Allow the paste to thoroughly dry.

Use an abrasive or rough edge of a sanding pad or sponge to sand the corian until it is level. Run your hand over the corian to ensure it is smooth to the touch.

Tips & Warnings

  • Whenever you are working with machinery, such as in grinding the corian to sawdust, be certain to adhere to any safety precautions and to wear protective eye goggles.
