Made in Canada SILGRANIT® is a unique, patented material developed by BLANCO that combines 80 percent natural granite stone with a premium acrylic resin formula for strength and durability. SILGRANIT® sinks are scratch, stain, acid and heat-resistant, withstanding up to 280 degrees Celsius, hotter than a pot straight from the stove. This durability in combination with the sink’s unique texture and natural beauty has made it the leading coloured sink of choice in the Canadian market. Now, SILGRANIT® sinks are available in over 160 models and seven finishes — Anthracite, Cinder, Café, Truffle, Biscotti, White and the latest finish, Metallic Gray.
For three generations, BLANCO has quietly and passionately elevated the standards for luxury sinks, faucets and decorative accessories. Family-owned since 1925, BLANCO's humble beginnings included the production of copper galvanized parts with a team of 30 loyal employees in Oberderdingen, Germany. In 2014, the company reached 50th millionth sink production and in 2015, BLANCO marked a 90th-anniversary milestone of the global presence. Proud of its European heritage and award-winning German engineering, BLANCO is well known for the handcrafted STEELART® sinks, the natural warmth and beauty of SILGRANIT®, and the elegant artistry of BLANCO faucets. With providing unmatched attention to detail and superior craftsmanship, BLANCO products are celebrated worldwide for their unsurpassed quality, design, and innovation.
