    Managed to drop a knife on my Corian worktop - pointy side on impact and its taken a wee chip out of the surface, few mm deep and about 5mm or so across.

    Any idea if I get the correct colour of adhesive if it is suitable for filling a hole?

    Only real advise I can see online is for cracks, and that suggests filling it with small slivers of offcut material as well as adhesive, but that may not be so easy given the shape of this. Also heard mention of the adhesive 'melting' the material so that it fuses - is that why it needs to be filled with offcuts, in which case adhesive on its own may not be suitable for hole-filling?

    Any advice??

    Think that is OK with granite which is a pretty speckled surface, but the corian I have is a very flat grey colour so needs to be an exact match.

    Is that something you have done or are you meaning that the video contains the word Corian? If it is the latter, then I have my doubts its the best option for me :eek:

    No. It's a clear product, reflects whatever is below it ,so virtually invisable if done correctely.

    I suppose you would know that for certain if you had actually used it on a flat matt colour of corian, but it sounds like you have not so is therefore guesswork. I appreciate the inut, but I am looking for real experience rather than quoting the marketing guff from a company that sells a fix-all-worktop-types product

    Tried and tested method hide marks on tops and also cars where clear repair liquid reflect the colour below, just basic physics.
