It is not always easy to find the right product to glue Corian. Corian is basically made of acrylic and polymer. The material is used a lot for countertops and vanities because of its beauty and durability. Epoxy glue can be used to make it stick together. You should always use a color-matching silicone to bind the countertops the cabinets and the back wall. Follow these steps to glue Corian using epoxy glue.

Step 1 - Prepare the Corian

Professionals use denatured alcohol to clean mating edges before applying the epoxy glue. Doing so makes sure that the edges have a strong grip.

Step 2 - Apply the Glue

The epoxy glue should be applied on both surfaces with a caulking gun. It is important not to wipe off the excess epoxy glue. Instead, let it dry for the right period of time and sand it off once it's dry.

TIP: Epoxy can let off toxic fumes, so make sure the work area has proper ventilation and put on a face mask before applying it.

Step 3 - Hide the Seams

Once the epoxy glue has cured, the excess should be sanded with a power sander, using very fine sandpaper. The best way to hide the seams is to find a waterproof silicone that matches the main color of the counter and to apply it right on the seam. The excess should be wiped off with a sponge to make the seam almost invisible.

The same silicone can be used to bind the countertop to the cabinets under them as well as the back wall once the back splash is installed.
