Important & Useful Tips Of Sanding The Corian SinksThe Corian sinks are used in the kitchen as well as the bathroom areas mostly due to their looks, but when they get scratches then it can become unattractive, that time the sanding process can be one of the options. The important & useful sanding tips are mentioned below:
Use Random Orbit SandingFor the undetectable scratch patterns, random orbit sander will be the best option. The kind of the sanding pad will oscillate in a circle of about 3/32” while also rotating at a different rate. The result of the pattern of sanding is as being a random scratch pattern, which is difficult to detect, as compared to the scratches that occurred while sanding in a circle or straight line. In order to achieve the even sanding pattern for a large area of the Corian sink, move the sander in the front-to-back direction on an area of the 2’ x 2’ and after that cover up the same space from side to side. Repeat the same process on area 2 or 3 times. Finally, wipe the area with the help of water thoroughly for removing the grit as well as the dust that is created from the sanding and repeat the same process with the finer grit.
Level Of GlossIn a case where the Corian sink is fully covered with the sanding scratches, the less the depth of the scratches, the higher the gloss is. If in case the light rays reflect off from a surface without deflecting by the sanding scratches, then it is possible that there will be a mirror-like reflection. This is due to the fact that scratches that are on the surface will become deeper and so the light is deflected from the greater angles. Finally, this will result in a semi-gloss image, to even a finish like the matte where no image is reflected. By taking a non-woven pad attached with a random orbit sander will help to add an attractive touch to the finish of the Corian sink. Sand down the surface one more time with the help of the 280-grit paper, if in case the matte finish is needed. Making another pass with a 320-grit non-woven pad will help a lot for giving the surface the touch of the richness.
The Sanding SequenceUse the 120-grit and then 180-grit discs that are to clean the heavy scratches as well as return the surface its flat finish. For the matte finish, take a 280-grit before using the maroon non-woven pad. For the satin finish, use 280-grit and 400-grit as well as the gray non-woven pad. In case of the gloss finish, use the 280-grit, 400-grit as well as 600-grit, and finally the gold non-woven pad for a gloss. If the user wants the higher gloss, that time use the 1000-grit instead of the gold pad as well as the 2000-grit polish compound with the non-woven pad that must be white non-abrasive.
