Astracast : Stainless Steel

Modern, durable and care free, it's no wonder that stainless steel is the most popular choice when it comes to kitchen sinks. Astracast uses only high quality 18/10 stainless steel in the manufacture of its sink products - 18 / 10 refers to the chromium (18%) nickel (10%) content in the steel which gives it the high level of stain, corrosion and rust resistance we associate with the material.

Stainless steel sinks are available in many shapes, sizes and installation types. All our Studio sinks are 0.7mm gauge or greater, this is the thickness of the steel used in the sinks construction. The higher the gauge, the more rigid the steel and the less flex the sink will have. Some manufacturers use thinner steel that has the potential to dent or scratch more easily.

Astracast : Composite ROK

Your kitchen sink is one of the most hardworking appliances, so you need to make sure it’s up to the job. That’s why the right composite material is so important. With ROK®, quartz crystals are concentrated at the surface, making it tougher, stronger and more durable. ROK® keeps on looking good, no matter what you throw at it.

Quartz is the fourth hardest element and that makes it a natural choice for a kitchen sink. Take a look at the magnified image of ROK®. As you can see, ROK® is made from an intense mass of 90% quartz crystaline particles, forced together within a smooth bonding agent to give it its superior strength. And unlike standard granite composites, ROK® has a greater concentration of quartz crystals at its surface, because this is where you want the real durability. It creates an impenetrable barrier, which makes it resistant to stains, intense heat, scratching and every day knocks and bumps.

Astracast : Ceramic

Ceramics have been used in the manufacture of sinks for well over 100 years, in a world of changing tastes and technology, ceramic sinks still offer all the durability and charm of their Victorian counterparts. There is something unmistakeable about the timeless beauty of a ceramic sink, they offer character to any kitchen, both modern or traditional, and with modern technology and new innovative manufacturing techniques we are able to create bolder designs that preciously thought possible.

A common misconception with ceramic sinks is they are brittle and impractical, yet every chemistry lab around the world uses a ceramic sink? In fact ceramics offer unparalleled resistance to stains, chemicals and heat, and modern glazes offer a hard and durable surface.
