One of the great things about Corian is that it’s repairable. Corian is a durable product but sometimes it does crack. I recently repaired a crack coming out of the corner in an L-shaped counter-top. See the picture below.
One of the reasons this cracked was because the corner was only a 1/2″ radius. The DuPont standard is a minimum 1″ radius in a corner like this. I corrected that with the plug repair.
This type of repair requires material from the original installation. When the counter-top is first installed the fabricator is supposed to leave behind a scrap piece, usually the sink cut out. That doesn’t always happen, but fortunately for this customer, they had it.
I picked up the scrap and made the plug in my shop. This takes some time and does create dust so I prefer to get that prep work done ahead of time. I then went back to the customer and did the repair. Here are the pictures with step by step descriptions:
And that’s how you do a plug repair! If you have a similar issue with your counter I’d love to hear from you. Please call at 973.875.8638 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you!
