What is SILGRANIT made of?
SILGRANIT is a patented granite composite material made of up to 80% natural granite. This finely ground granite is blended with a high-quality source of acrylic. This superior grade acrylic is made in-house under careful supervision and is blended with specially selected pigments which colours the material all the way through. The durability of SILGRANIT is the direct result of precise, strict protocols used during every step of production.
How durable are SILGRANIT sinks?
SILGRANIT is extremely strong, making it impact and scratch resistant. If you drop a knife or metal utensil into your sink and it leaves a mark, don't worry. The metal has actually worn off onto the sink's surface. All you need is an abrasive sponge, some mild detergent or baking soda, and a bit of scrubbing effort to remove the mark.
Can SILGRANIT sinks scratch?
SILGRANIT is extremely durable and will not scratch. If you scratch a fork or knife on the surface of a SILGRANIT sink, the sink will actually grind down the metal of the utensil. These metal marks left behind can be scrubbed off with a rough sponge, some baking soda and hot water.
Is SILGRANIT heat resistant?
Yes, SILGRANIT is heat-resistant and will not burn up to 280°C / 536°F, exceeding common boiling or baking temperatures.
Is it safe to handle food on SILGRANIT?
SILGRANIT has a defensive shield to protect you and your food from dirt and bacteria. Its patented Hygienic+Plus surface protection formula reduces bacteria growth by up to 98%. This makes SILGRANIT completely safe for contact with food.
Is SILGRANIT acid resistant?
Yes, SILGRANIT is resistant to food acids. Acid-based foods like lemons and oranges can be directly prepared on the sink surface. Even vinegar or acid-based cleaning products will not harm the sink surface (i.e. citric acid, acetic acid).
Can SILGRANIT change colour over time?
Fresh fruit, vegetables and years of bright sunshine provide the surfaces of your sink with plenty of challenges as time goes on. But they remain completely indifferent. After all, SILGRANIT sinks are solid as a rock. The material will not discolour or fade under normal use, and with a little care.
BLANCO InFino the smart drain system
Intuitive control concept. In the manual version, the outflow is opened and closed by turning the InFino® strainer to the right or left. In contrast to other up-and-down waste options, this does not change the position of the strainer and the perfect looks of the sink centre are always maintaned as it stays flush within the base of the bowl. Sinks with the new InFino® strainer system are shown with the following icons to suite the type of drain system.
