Corian is made by Dupont. Here is a page I got from Google.The scotch brite pad is made by 3M Co. and is sold in grocery stores and I have seen then at Home Depot in the cleaning section.

Removing Stains and Fixing Scratches or Burns

Nicks, scratches and cuts are inevitable with any high-use product, including Corian®. But because Corian® is solid all the way through, it is easy to renew to its original appearance as described below.

Minor damage, including scratches, general or chemical stains, scorches or burns, and minor impact marks, can be repaired on-site with a light abrasive cleanser and a product such as a Scotch-Brite* pad. For heavier damage, light sanding may be necessary. The following steps should be followed:

Identify the extent of the damage and ascertain whether a minor repair will solve the problem. You may want to consult with your supplier of Corian®.

If the damage is minor, try to repair it with an abrasive cleanser or a product such as a Scotch-Brite* pad.

If the above step is unsuccessful, hand-sand with 400-grit wet and dry paper. To minimize dust, wet the surface before starting.

If this is unsuccessful, use an electric sander and heavier-grit paper. Always make provisions to control dust.

If this, too, is unsuccessful, you may need to consult a professional for other repair options. In this case, contact your supplier of Corian® for assistance.

*Scotch-Brite is a trademark of the 3M Company.

It's simple to repair scratches in the counter tops, just sand lightly with a 100, then 180, then 280 grit paper and your all done. It's what we use when we make them. We don't use more then 3-4 different gritts. SO GET IT RIGHT! Solid Surface Craftsman Scotia, NY #1 in the business!

The best thing to do is to live with the scratches until they are just driving you crazy. Then have a professional refinish the tops for you. As a homewoner and not a fabricator, almost anything that you do to your countertop yourself will just make it worse. Sanding by hand is a horrible idea. You should only sand with a sander and then you need to have the technique down or you will still make it worse.
