Corian countertop shine

The corian type countertop in my MH have very little shine, they may have been that way from day one, but the coach is14 years old and I think they could look better. I tried a granite cleaner polish with little difference. I spot tested car wax, did not see much difference, but will try again tomorrow.

Anyone have any luck with something like this?

mine has a sheen, not a shine...I did see on TV that they buff it with rubbing compound just like you would do an auto after a new paint job.

I have yet to try that due to the mess that a buffer can create

Go to the Corian website. They should have instructions on polishing there

Thanks, I think mine may just be the matted finish.

My home Corian counters where polished with a Scotch-Brite on a rotary buffer by the Super-pro who installed them. I had another Corian guy in this winter to open up the stove area for a new slide-in range. He said they looked great but needed buffed with a Scotch-Brite. So that is what my local dealer recommends. My counters are going on 20 years old.

I buff mine in the coach periodically with synthetic sanding and polishing pads on my 5" orbital sander. I've gone as low as 500 grit to remove accumulated scratches and work up to 4000 grit for the final shine. That gives what I would call a semi-gloss finish. An even finer grit pad would be needed to get a bright gloss.
