I get Corian from a countertop factory, but I only get scraps for my Woodshop students to work with. It is my understanding that because of the warranty associated with Corian, Dupont will not sell or allow the product to be used by anyone other than a qualified corian technician, who has taken and passed the course. The reason for this – in the early days, false promises by unqualified installers would result in product failure after the installation. This led to the customer calling Dupont with their complaints. You know where that went don’t you? Dupont was refunding/losing money because of faulty workmanship. I don’t know all the particulars, but flat & level subsurfaces, along with correct interior radius cuts, contributed to most of the problems.
