Corian Counter and Dining Table Refinishing

We recently purchased a pre-owned Classic that has the Corian countertop and dining booth table top. Considering a need to have them refinished which I understand is a process of step-sanding and polishing to fully restore them (removal of surface scratches and sheen).

Not something I think I want to tackle myself and aware that their are trade professionals who can do such, I'm wondering of any other AF members here have done it (or had it done) and what was the result.

Photos before/after would be great as well.

Regards,
Rewilia

My little house at home has Corian countertops in the kitchen, and I had them refinished about 10 years after installation by a company that sells them.

It was not cheap, but they did an excellent job in removing surface scratches and just tidying it all up.

The Corian in Airstreams is quite thin for weight reduction
I doubt you could sand it without cracking it. Replacement or simply clear coating it with epoxy are the options .

I have used my orbital auto buffer and some compound for removing minor scratches from plexiglass and it looks great, but only for a short time. It doesn't bother us as much anymore

Had it done at my house. Not that expensive. Should be a couple hundred bucks. Donít think it will crack. Youíre taking off thousandth or so. Sanding at about 6000 grit or less at the end.

Corian refinishing is very easy, the grit you start with is determined by the severity of the scratches. Normally you would start with 80 to 100 grit and work up to fine Scotchbrite pads wet. Sanding Corian is very dusty, a sander with a vacuum attached is helpful. I have done this professionally and it is not that hard

Thanks. Have seen these videos on U-Tube, but nothing something I want to take on myself. Prefer to pay an experienced professional.

Before my retirement as a cabinet maker we did it all the time. It's just a system of wet sanding through the steps to bring it to as better than when it was new you just need to decide the shine you want
