Care of Corian®



DuPont Corian® Use and Care Guide

DuPont’s Corian® material is designed for ease of use throughout its lifetime. It is enough to follow a few simple rules to ensure the beautiful appearance of the Corian® surface.


Routine care for Corian® surfaces 

For daily care, use soapy water or other commonly available surface cleaners. Remove excess detergent with a dry cloth. Rinse the surface with warm water and wipe it off. If necessary, use a microfiber cloth and wipe the surface with an ammonia-based cleaner, then rinse with water. This procedure will remove most of the dirt and scale from the Corian® surface.
Always clean in circular, overlapping motions, front to back, then side to side, until the entire surface is cleaned. Abrasive or slightly abrasive detergents should not be used on dark and shiny surfaces. Water left to dry on the surface can cause scaling. To prevent this, it is important to wipe the surface dry.


Special care for stubborn stains

Stubborn stains may require more intensive cleaning. The following recommendations should be followed to effectively remove specific stains from Corian® surfaces.

  • Vinegar, coffee, tea, lemon juice, vegetable juice, dyes, ketchup, lily pollen, saffron, light scratches, cigarette burns, shoe polish, ink, marker, iodine, mold, gentian, blood, red wine, perfume. In these situations, use a damp microfiber cloth and a mildly abrasive cleaning product (except high-gloss and dark surfaces).
  • Grease, grease and oil residues. Use a microfiber cloth and rub the stain with diluted bleach. Rinse several times with warm water and wipe with a dry cloth.
  • Hard water scale, soap, minerals. Use a microfiber cloth and rub the stain with a standard descaling agent or vinegar and let it sit for 2-4 minutes. Use a second clean cloth, rinse thoroughly with water.
  • Nail polish. Use a microfiber cloth and rub the stain with acetone-free nail polish remover. Rinse several times with warm water and wipe with a dry cloth. If the stain is still visible, repeat the procedure, this time using very fine sandpaper..


 How to prevent permanent damage

 To prevent permanent damage to the Corian® surface, avoid the use of harsh chemicals, e.g. paint removers, oven cleaners, acidic drain cleaners, acetone-based nail polish removers. In the event of a spillage, wash the surface immediately with water to completely rinse off the chemical. Do not use harsh chemicals such as acetone, oven cleaners, thinners, strong acids (hydrochloric acid, etc.) or strong oxidants (caustic soda, etc.), industrial detergents, or paint thinners. Do not use metal scrapers, brushes or other metal tools to remove stains.
In the event of severe damage, contact DuPont’s Corian® Warranty Center for referral to a local Quality Network contractor for professional regrinding or repair.
