Silgranit is strong

This makes SILGRANIT the right material for your kitchen sink

A kitchen sink has to put up with a lot over the course of the day. In the morning, hot coffee is spilled onto the sink. At lunchtime, some chicken may accidentally slip into the bowl after being washed. In the evening, a burned pan needs to be scrubbed. Nothing to worry about? Absolutely. Granite sinks made of Silgranit remain as they are. You can rest assured that the strong material made of up to 80% quartz sand, the strongest component of granite, is resistent to any common chores.

Silganit is clean

The no. 1 reason to buy: a breeze to clean

Chopped beetroot on the white sink. A red wine glass left on the drainer. This can cause nasty stains. But now? It’s no problem for Silgranit. Often the stain can simply be washed away by running the mixer tap. Just like that.
Save yourself hours of scrubbing. Enjoy chopping and frying food together with your loved ones, then savouring a delicious meal in good company. In between, rinse off large dishes and wipe down your Silgranit sink. Done. Drops of sauce run off into the bowl practically by themselves. Crumb and dirt remain lying on the surface. One wipe, and it's all gone. This is the sink for today.
In about the time it takes to brush your teeth. Daily cleaning and care could hardly be faster.

Cleaning Silgranit
Silgranit is clean

Ensures daily healthy family living

Hand washing accounts for 33% of all related food poisoning cases. It is therefore important to maintain good personal hygiene practice. But there are more things you can do to take care of your families health. A food safe material such as Silgranit will best reduce the risk of becoming sick from food-born diseases. This is particularly important because there is no immediate way of telling if food is contaminated. You cannot see, taste or smell anything different from the norm. All Silgranit sinks have the built-in patented protective formula ‘Hygiene+Plus’ with antibacterial properties. Tests* confirm that this built-in hygiene protection reduces the growth of relevant kitchen bacteria by an average of 98%.

* Tests carried out with bacterial stems ATCC 8739 and ATCC 6538 by an independent laboratory on behalf of BLANCO, 2011.

Questions about Silgranit

What is Silgranit made of?

Our granite sinks consist of Silgranit, a composite material made of up to 80 % quartz sand, the strongest component of granite. This is apparent not only to the eye, but also to the touch. Our Silgranit sinks have a lovely stone-like feel and are extremely easy to clean. What’s more, the material is highly resistant. You want to have free rein in your kitchen, whether you're cooking with tomatoes, strawberries, lemon juice or beetroot. Your sink is impervious to whatever ends up in it, and simply will not allow any discolouration. Only if limescale builds up on the surface of your sink you’ll need to remove it to avoid dirt accumulation. This makes your Silgranit sink an optimal synthesis of functionality and visual appeal

Is Silgranit heat-resistant?

Sometimes, things can really heat up in your kitchen. Silgranit can deal with the usual temperatures reached on pots, pans and baking trays when preparing food. Pots filled with boiling water, baking trays coming directly out of the oven and the like can be placed directly on the sink. Silgranit material is heat-resistant according to DIN standard 13310. The DIN standard is a uniform type of testing especially designed to check whether a product can withstand the usual chores in and around a kitchen sink.

Tip: If you have an overheated pan or tray, we recommend using our top-rails or a heat pad or trivet to protect the surface of your sink and worktop from the effects of extreme heat and differences in temperature.

How do I clean my Silgranit sink?

Silgranit is very easy to clean. For the daily routine, a sponge and a little washing-up liquid are enough. Your sink will shine again. If limescale has settled on your sink, use BLANCO DailyClean+ for cleaning. In our guide, we show you in detail how to clean your granite sink made of Silgranit.

How resistant is Silgranit?

You can also splash red wine, orange juice, hot coffee or beetroot juice around with abandon. Your Silgranit sink won’t mind one bit.

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).

Remember: chloride acids or any other industrial aggressive acids might hurt your Silgranit sink and many other kitchen surface like granite, wood, paint, glass, … so please avoid using them in the kitchen.

Does Silgranit present any risk if it comes into contact with food?

No, Silgranit has been developed to come into contact with food and food acids. Hence there is no risk. Food acids won’t harm the sink material. Silgranit has a closed surface that blocks all common household acids. The material remains as it is. Nothing gets in and nothing comes out.

And a Silgranit sink is safe for food, so no sink substances are transferred to food placed on the sink. The food won’t take on any other odour or flavor and can therefore be prepared on the sink safely.

Can Silgranit granite sinks 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, our Silgranit sinks are solid as a rock. The material will not discolour or fade under normal use, and with a little care.

Is Silgranit hygienic?

Yes, Silgranit comes with the built-in patented protective formula 'Hygiene+Plus' with antibacterial properties.

What is Hygiene+Plus?

As a result, Silgranit surface has a shield effect against bacterial growth. This is the Hygiene+Plus protection. Tests* confirm that this built-in hygiene protection reduces the growth of relevant kitchen bacteria by an average of 98%.

* Tests carried out with bacterial stems ATCC 8739 and ATCC 6538 by an independent laboratory on behalf of BLANCO, 2011.

Do I need to take special care of a Silgranit sink if I use a hot mixer tap with boiling water?

Silgranit is ready to work with a hot mixer tap. Silgranit isn’t fazed by high temperatures, so boiling water won’t be a problem. A hot mixer tap like our TAMPERA delivers water at 100°C directly out of the spout, ready to make tea or cook food. Using it correctly is important to avoid injuries or putting an excessive burden on the sink.

Here our experienced tips:

• Always place a pot or cup below the tap before activating the boiling water and turn it off in good time to avoid spills.

• Be sure to keep your hands away from the running boiling water.

• Remember that the spout might be very hot after running boiling water, so avoid touching it or run some cold water before touching it. This might be very important if you have kids at home.

• Move the spout of the tap to different positions to ensure that the boiling water doesn’t hit always the same spot on the sink or place a cloth on the bottom to avoid subjecting one point of the sink surface to too much boiling water.

How do I remove metal abrasion (e.g. from pots) on the Silgranit sink?

Especially on light-colored sinks metal abrasion from pots are quickly noticed. However, these can be easily removed with a soft sponge, water and cooking oil.

How do I get a hole in the sink?

Many of the BLANCO granite sinks made of Silgranit are delivered without a hole for the mixer tap - we give you the freedom to decide for yourself where you want to punch the hole for your mixer tap. We have already marked and pre-drilled the places for it on the sink. Have a hammer, punch (tool similar to a metal pin), file, safety gloves and safety goggles ready. Insert the sink into the countertop. Hammer the hole through from the top. To do this, pick the right position, center the punch and tap it with the hammer. Then carefully tap the remaining pieces out of the hole mark with the hammer. In the last step, bring the hole to the right size with the file until it is flush with the pre-milled hole.

Is the material heat resistant?

Granite sinks can cope with the usual temperatures reached during the preparation of food in pots, pans and with baking trays. Even filled cooking pots or baking trays coming directly from the oven can be placed directly on the sink. This is proven by the tests according to DIN standard 13310. The DIN standard is a uniform type of test, which is intended in particular to check whether a product can withstand the usual tasks in and around a sink.
