The test was carried out by applying 5 drops of each reagent to the surface, covering it with a watch glass (except in the case of those marked with **). The test with the chemical products marked with ** was carried out by saturating them with a cotton ball that was then covered with a bottle. The chemical products were tested during a 24h period, they were then rinsed and assessed.

One of the generally accepted chemical product resistance tests is the exposure of the material to a reagent during a 16-hour period, covered and uncovered. Reagents that do not have an impact on the surfaces are classified as Class I and reagents with adverse effects on the appearance and properties are classified as Class II. Most Class II reagents do not penetrate Corian, but they affect the surface, therefore, the occasional stain resulting from unexpected exposure to Class II reagents can be often eliminated with a fine sanding paper or steel wool.

* It can attack or dull the surface
** It can slightly dim the colour
*** It can slightly darken the colour
Class II Reagents
Acetic acid (99,5%)Chloroform (100 %)DioxaneEthyl acetateFormic acid (90%)Furfuraldehyde
Methylene chlorideSulfuric acid (77,96%)Wright’s Stain (standard solution)Trichloroacetic acid (10,50%)Sulfuric (33%)
In most cases, biochemical stains will stain Corian after a few minutes of exposure.
However, stains can be removed by scrubbing them with acetone after they dry.
