Solid Surface Care and Maintenance

Corian® is stain-resistant. Because Corian® is nonporous, stains can't penetrate the surface, so it's easy to clean and maintain. Unlike natural stone, Corian® never requires sealing. We do not recommend placing a hot pot directly on Corian®. Although Corian® remains stable and un- damaged in temperatures up to 212°F (100°C), high heat or flame will damage your surface. In most cases, this damage can be repaired. To protect your Corian® from heat damage, always use a hot pad or a trivet with rubber feet when using hot pots, or heat-generating appliances like electric skillets or electric cooking pots. 
Corian® is easy to clean. Soapy water or an ammonia-based cleaner is all that is necessary for day-to- day care of your Corian® vanity top. Minor scratches, burns or discoloration are also easy to repair. Major damage should be repaired by a Certified Fabricator/Installer of DuPont Corian®.  

Everyday Cleaning 
• Wipe the surface with a damp cloth or sponge. 
• For basic stains, clean with mild detergent or general purpose cleaner.
   
Removing Persistent Stains, Burns or Light Scratches 
• Scrub surface in a circular motion with an abrasive cleaner, such as Soft Scrub®, and a wet, green Scotch-Brite® pad. (See Note below) 
• For best results, repeat the above step with a wet, gray Scotch-Brite® pad. 
• On darker colored products, repeat with wet white Scotch-Brite® pad.  

Maintaining a Uniform Appearance 
• Occasionally scrub the entire surface of the product with a wet, green Scotch- Brite®pad and an abrasive cleaner, moving in a circular motion. 
• Repeat the above step with a wet, gray Scotch-Brite®pad and for darker colors, repeat with a wet, white Scotch-Brite® pad. 
 
Scratch Removal 
• Lightly sand the surface in a circular motion with 120-grit sandpaper. 
• Repeat this step, using 220-grit sandpaper and then 320-grit sandpaper. 
• Complete the process by scrubbing the surface in a circular motion with a wet, green Scotch Brite® pad and then with a wet, gray Scotch-Brite® pad. On darker colored products*, repeat with a wet, white Scotch-Brite® pad.
