Chemicals designed to remove or de-bond super glue would likely damage the corian as it's bonding agent is similar.
I'd try scraping with a razor blade, light sanding and re-polishing.

Depending on how bad the spot is, you may want to contact your Corian provider. With super glue, it generally can be handled by a repolishing of the area. If the super glue has etched in, they can mix a color blend, apply it, then after it dries, polish it out and you will never know.

A few years ago, I had a customer who's son used a knife to cut the nozzle off a whole bottle of super glue on the Corian counter top. Well, he had it laying on its side so when he got done more than half the contents had run out onto the top.

It dried and looked awful, The corian guys came in, ground it down, mixed color, applied it and the after it fried polished it. You can not see or tell it ever happened.

union label is exactly right. If it's a common color or pattern you can get a bottle of their glue/resin. Grind out, sand out, scrape it, whatever you do. then glob on the resin let it set for an hour or so. Sand throught the steps up to your current sheen.

Not a bad time to repolish the whole top and renew your counter!

I am sorry that I have come late to the party. I sell Corian for non traditional uses. I also sell CA.

CA is an unusual adhesive in that it does not bond in the presence of oxygen. So the CA on your top is just dried. The chemicals that may have affected your top were not present long enough to etch it.

Simply use a razor blade and scrape it off. Your finger nail may do. If you scratch it just sand with 220 sand paper and buff with a gray ScotchBrite. This is good for the most common finish.

I hope this helps

Thanks for the tip. I had learned this through experience but did not know why it worked.
