Video: Repairing a Scratch in a Cultured Marble Countertop / Vanity

Posted on 23 September 2016 by cradmin

This video shows one process used to repair a cultured marble vanity countertop that has been scratched. There is not a lot of information on whose methodology this is or where it is filmed, but it does walk through the various grit changes to get the scratch out of this top.

Because cultured marble typically only has a thin gel-coat top, and are relatively inexpensive, few spend the kind of time developing techniques to fix the material. However, this method appears to work.

Let us know what you think.

How Cultured Marble Sinks and Vanities Are Made

Posted on 20 January 2015 by cradmin

There is little doubt that we have all seen hundreds, if not thousands of cultured marble vanities in numerous settings. But, just how is this common and inexpensive product made? Well, this video, apparently an episode of “How It’s Made” from the Discovery Channel, is offered by ‘worldnews33‘ and shows the process of how cultured marble sinks and vanities are developed.

While I doubt most fabricators have any enthusiasm for pushing these lower-end products when tackling a bathroom project, it is worth knowing the process for their creation, if for no other reason than to be able to sell intelligently against them.

This video seems relatively straight-forward, but I know where are some more complex versions in which a variety of more colorful and intricate patterns are created and more eye-catching gel coats are used to take the look of these to the next level, but this will certainly paint you a basic picture.
