    Hello guys and girls, I have a job for a cook top 're using a much older and smaller cook top and thethe lip edge isnt much more than a 1/4 inch. I know for hot sources we have to route the radius into the four corners but the smallest corner template is a 1/4 inch. 
    I called my corian regional rep and asked him and he said if you cant get it in you may have to worry about warranty work down the road. Inbuilt everything else to spec and the instal went fine. Im going to stand behind my work if something goes wrong.
     My question is have you guys run into this situation before? Am I going to be mAking a service call in the near future? any info or thoughts are appreciated.  Thanks

    If you put corner blocks and heat tape, did the sanding of the cut etc it should hold up I would think..

    In my ten years of fabricating and following the rule book we have never had to do a cook top repair of our own work.
    Like wags said, corner blocks and heat tape.

    Generally, it takes at least two bad situations for a failure. Corner blocks, routed/sanded cut outs, no seams in the cut outs and be sure the homeowner knows she can't have a lot of overlapping pots/pans over the edge. It should be fine.

    Most newer cooktops have lots of insulation around the box. If you at least make a radius in the corner and use heat tape, it should be ok. We haven't run into many issues especially once we started adding the corner blocks.

    Im distributor of solid surface, and our market is claiming that most gas cooktops are cracking at the corners!
    We have place Nomex tape or Kaowool + Aluminum Foil + a piece of 10x10 glued under the corner.

    We need support on this!!

    Hello Nicolas, you need to do high strength cooktop corners as they do on Corian, Staron and HI-MACS. You can find the specifications in the fabrication manuals of each manufacturer.
