Corian® was created for a lifetime of easy care. Just follow our simple guidelines to help you keep your Corian® surfaces looking beautiful.
Although liquids cannot penetrate Corian®, it is best to wipe up spills as they occur. Generally, a damp microfiber cloth used with a standard household kitchen spray should remove most stains.
Once or twice a week, give your sink a beauty treatment: Remove all the fat and oil residues of normal food preparation from the sink, using a detergent or a hard-surface cleaner. Use a spray with 3/4 of liquid household bleach and 1/4 water to spray the sink and leave a few hours or overnight. The exposure time should be limited to 16hrs. In the morning, rinse or clean with a damp cloth. The sink should then be beautifully clean, with very little effort.
Important — Do not place hot pots, pans, etc. directly on the countertop surface.
Like all materials, Corian® will develop slight abrasion marks in normal daily use:
Never cut or chop on Corian® – it will score the surface! Use a chopping board instead.
Dark, heavily pigmented colors will show scratches, dust and ordinary wear and tear more readily than lighter, textured colors.
Accidental spills of strong chemicals (e.g. paint stripper, brush cleaners, metal cleaners, oven cleaners, cleaners containing methylene chloride, acid drain cleaners, acetone based nail varnish removers etc.) should be flushed promptly with plenty of soapy water to avoid damaging the countertop! For nail varnish spills, non-acetone based remover can be used, and then flushed with water. Undetected or prolonged exposure to chemicals may damage the surface.
Instant Boiling Water Taps
A container should be used to collect boiling water at all times as boiling water from this type of tap may cause surface damage in and around the Corian® sink. This type of damage is not covered by the DuPont 10 Year Warranty.
