FYI. I own a aquarium store in LA, CA and we use a sand paper kit that has a range of 1500 to 12000. Yes 12000 to get scratches out of acrylic aquariums. When we're done with the process you wouldn't know there was a scratch. Jim

Another suggestion,

If you have the sink covers take one of them to a local kitchen cabinet/counter top maker. The stuff they have is a two part mixture. If they can color match it all you need to do is mix it and apply it to the scratch with a putty knife. When it dries (hardens) use a random orbit sander with a fine paper (If I remember correctly 400 or so and work your way to maby a 1000 grit) then finish it off with a scotchbright pad on the random orbit sander. I had a complete edge on my former coaches counter break off and the local counetr top guys used that method to repair it. I also used the mixture to repair one of the sink covers that split when something was dropped on it.

The Soft Scrub that the lady at Corian did nothing. I went back to the 1500 and with a water hose on a table outside and lots of water. Water running as I sand almost got rid of them. We been having temps in the high 90's so not out too long at a time. I am going to do these covers and maybe the island and tops inside get maybe a quick Scoft Scrub and that it.

Tom,

I recently polished my Corian, but it sounds like your scratches are deeper than mine.

I used 3M Imperial Hand Glaze polishing compound (found at auto body supply stores) with a high speed buffing wheel. I had to make 3 passes to get the scratches out. After that, I sealed the Corian with a good polymer automotive polish and it looks great. Liquids now bead up on the surface.
