How to Polish Corian Countertops

Corian countertops are manufactured to be low maintenance and last for years. They're available in three finishes and hundreds of colours that look like natural stone, but their man made construction makes cleaning and polishing them a breeze when compared to natural stone. Polishing is the best way to get that just installed look back and extend the life of your countertops.

After having completed the sanding, cleaning and drying process on your countertop, set your polisher to the low speed setting, apply the cleaner to your polishing pad and polish the entire surface applying light pressure. Reapply the cleaner as needed to keep the pad moist. Let the countertop dry completely.

Place a clean polishing pad on the polisher and apply the approved Corian polishing agent to it. Slowly move the polisher in a circular motion to apply the polish. Apply additional polish as needed.

Wipe any excess polish off the surface with a clean dry cotton cloth. Apply sealer if desired.


Apply the polish liberally to cover the entire surface of your Corian countertop.
