Can I Laminate Corian?


Recommended Posts

I am needing an extra thick nut to cover something and I dont have any pieces of corian thick enough :D . Has anyone ever laminated corian. I always use clear epoxy to install nuts so I think the same epoxy would hold corian to corian.

What do yall think?

I appreciate your input!!!

I gave it a whirl with loc-tite brand clear epoxy, I use this epoxy on everything. I will let you know how it turned out in the morning. :D

Super-glue should work very well, since corian is about 10% acrylic, and super-glue is also acrylic.

I just bought a few samples of corian which is over 1/4" thick ( I think- too lazy to go measure).

I got solid black, bright white, vanilla, and butter cream. the last 2 pretty much look like any variation of bone or ivory you would come across.

I also have a big slab of "linen" corian that I got free at a counter-top fabrication shop. It's "white" with little speckles in it, so when it's polished, it looks like some kind of stone.

I sawed it to length last night and filed down the edges. It is holding up so far, I have not put it on and slotted it yet.

So far so good!

PS: If it comes apart I am going to retry with super glue
