These commercial brands used in the manufacture of kitchen use products exclusively to its special patented raw material. so, Artificial stone - a collective term, and the composition of raw materials depends on the enterprise technology, manufactures these products.
This is - a composite chemical compound, made of granite chips and binding polymers in a proportion of 8 to 2. therefore make artificial stone nbut 80% of chips natural stone and only 20% of high molecular weight acrylic resins. In appearance it is similar to the raw materials of natural stone, However, the hallmark of a good compliance acts. For this reason, the kitchen sink made of artificial stone are nizheperechislenny set of models:
- round sink.
- corner sinks.
- rectangular sinks.
As the functionality of sinks are divided into the sink and one with a different number of cups (double sink for the kitchen) and addition of functional elements.
In addition to describe the benefits of this material was lighter in weight, and it decreased porosity due to filling of the latter resin. For this reason, it has become waterproof (vlagoottalkivayuschey) and with smooth plane.
Raw materials and trends
Each trend Company, which is produced from an artificial stone sink for kitchens, It has its own specific raw materials with its own patented technology. Of the most famous in the market of kitchen equipment should be called following: White (Germany) - cilgranit, Franke sink for kitchen (Germany) – fragranit, Benthor (France) - novokvarts and Kerman, shock (Germany) - kristalayt, «Gran Party» (RF) - lityevoy marble, sinks made of artificial stone Poligran (RF).
The pigment components are introduced into the mixture, therefore sink made of artificial stone is resistant color with a diverse range of colors.
Such sinks made of artificial stone for kitchen, having a wide range of tones well fit into any refined design solution.
Sinks stone comply, that apply to such articles the genus:
- Inertness to household chemicals based acid, alkali and the presence of abrasives and coloring components, allowing greater use of disinfectants.
- Easy to clean from grease.
- Inertness to thermal extremes.
- Wide range of colors, allowing the product to give stylishness. They go well with the color scheme countertops, kitchen fronts or other significant elements of an interior.
- Material muffles the sound of water flow.
- The ductility of the material allows to produce a product in different form and with different depth.
A single flaw sinks - high price. but, manufacturers claim, the metal washer will not be able to serve for such a long period, like a stone.

3. Inertness to chemical compounds, used in everyday life.
4. absolute convenience. Due vlagoottalkivayuschey wash cleaning surface of artificial stone enough sponge with a few drops of.
5. Resistance to high mechanical stress and vibration. Hardness cast marble is compared with the granite material, and several orders of magnitude superior to natural marble strength.
6. Warm tactile surface (raw materials characterized by low thermal conductivity coefficient)
7. Protection for human health and the environment: Liquid marble - ecological and harmless raw materials, the basis of which the natural marble chippings.
8. The versatility of shapes and sizes. Stone sink under the kitchen, It has no slot for the mixer, therefore, refers to reversing. Consequently, the latter can be left- and right-hand drive.
