I recently acquired a few pieces of Corian. I want to glue up some Peppermill blanks, but not sure what glue to use. Any suggestions?

Stan is correct….except I have an uncle they glues it with Super Glue. Depends on whether you can hide the joint. Your supposed to use the glue that matches the color. In the past you had to attend their school in order to buy the products. Don’t know if that is still the case. Might find a person that would sell it to you since you are not going to be his competitor.

I work for a cabinet company that also does in house fab w/ solid surface. On my small projects I use super glue but that’s for making pens… small stuff. I would suggest you look up c-top fabricators in your area. Give a call first and go in with your parts and some of your clamps. I know if someone did that here we would glue it for free. To do that work your self you need a “gun” to get the 2 part glue to mix in a mixing tube correctly. The “gun” costs some good money. Plus the amount you need is not worth buying a full tube of glue. If you are going to do a lot of these then the money is not so bad. but as said before you try to match the glue to the main body tone of the solid surface. You can mix different companies glue with different companies solid surface as you need to. A good glue color that works on lots of different solid surface colors is “PEARL” its kind of clear so that lets the color of the solid surface come threw.

hope this helps. let us know whey you end up doing and make sure you show the items when they are done!
