Are you looking for something out of the ordinary in kitchen sinks, something akin to a rare find or even analogous to limited edition cars? Well, then your best bet would be to opt for composite sinks, available in Granite or Quartz. These sinks are a cut above the rest and stand (sit) tall and proud against the also-rans. The way composite material turns out as a finished product is quite breathtaking and awe-inspiring. The design, finish, and overall looks are enhanced manifold with the use of composite material. Below, we have listed a full range of Composite and Granite Kitchen sinks.
Granite Composite: Granite oozes elegance, style and a singularity of form. All these attributes contribute in no small measure to the employment of granite composite as the favoured construction material. The high density of granite makes the sink more scratch, heat and chip resistant. This chic and stylish material is fast becoming the choice of the discerning buyer for their kitchen sinks. Granite composite, it may be mentioned, is deemed as one of the most durable composite sink materials in the market today.
This material which is resistant to household acids has the feel of natural matte stone. Its composition is: 80% granite and 20% acrylic resin. This material is not only smoother with a silken sheen but also more durable than quartz composite. Though granite composite sinks generally come in dark shades, one can also find them in an array of custom-made matte colours. An enduring quality of these sinks is that they will not fade even when they are exposed to high heat. Hot pots and pans will thus not affect its appearance. In fact, granite composite is capable of resisting heat up to 535 degrees Fahrenheit. Granite composite sinks have become synonymous with a kitchen’s beauty, splendour and sophistication.
A quartz composite sink generally comprises of 70% quarts and 30% resin filler. Quartz composite sinks are capable of resisting day-to-day cuts and scruffs, besides withstanding harshness of the regular cleaning materials and liquids. They are also heat resistant, thus piping hot pots and pans will not tarnish their appearance.
They are a notch below granite based sinks in performance as far as wear and tear is concerned, which by no means, suggests that they are incapable of withstanding the rigours of daily use. Moreover, these sinks, due to the richness and depth of colour are capable of retaining their brightness and shade throughout their life span.
