The superglue method, also known as the Cyanoacrylate method, works best for hairline cracks that are narrower than the thickness of a few paper sheets. It would be best if you kept in mind that the better application of repairing solutions depends on every area that needs to be repaired.
Clean the affected area using acetone thoroughly-- remember to take all the necessary precautions to avoid any hazards. Then, let the acetone evaporate before starting the next step.
Fill the crack or chip in some thin layers allowing the glue to correct right between the material layers. You have to overfill the scratch or crack to repair the cavity and then shave the excess adhesive from the surface using a razor blade.
Scrape the excess glue slowly by holding the razor blade at an exact 80-degree angle. Alternate your shaving motion for different approaches to pull all the glue out of the crack or scratch. But if you could not avoid pulling out all the glue from scratch or crack or the result is not as good as you expected, you can add extra glue and scrape the top layer of glue again later.
You have to pay attention to the color of the material of your bathroom countertop. Superglue may look quite good when used to fix a scratch, chip, or crack, mainly since it can take on the surrounding stone’s exact color. Clear superglue can blend well with the surface of the countertops.
When using superglue, there are limitations and exceptions. For example, if you have a dark tone stone, you should use a pigmented epoxy to blend the color properly.
