lo-speed grinder, black pad section ( floor machine scrubbing pad ), xylene, & elbow grease will remove most of it if you're fortunate,,, not certain why anyone would use that sealer but its not my c-top,,, you don't mention if the c-top was polished, hones, or thermal but, since most are polished, that's what i'd do

mike's a super-moderator & may be correct,,, in my experience, most suppliers won't have the answer IF their product's been used incorrectly & as a way to avoid liability,,, certainly worth a try, tho
