Corian & Acetone don’t mix!!


My last countertop maintenance customer had a Corian top that had a run in with Acetone.  Now Corian is 100% acrylic, acetone eats acrylic, you ladies who get your nails done know this.  You’ve heard of non-acetone nail  polish remover right? Anyway, a portion of the top had sort of been eaten away by the acetone.  I filled  the area with the matching Corian adhesive, let it dry, sanded it and voila…you can’t even tell it was repaired.  I love this stuff!!

    I have this same problem right now. Blue tint acetone rings on my bathroom countertop. Can you recommend anyone in the Washington DC area to Dow hat you recommend above?

      Sorry I don’t know anyone in your area. Go to the DuPont Corian website and there is a link for local fabricators and distributors, they should be able to direct you. Thanks for reading my blog and good luck!

    I have a slight acetone stain on my Corian top. It just took the shine off, is there a product t restore the shine that is recommended?
