Have you seen a round modular kitchen? If you think that is unique, consider the other product of Acrysil Limited, ‘Carysil Quartz Kitchen Sink’ made of silica quartz, the second hardest stone after diamond. Kitchen sinks in various sizes, colours and shapes are available in the stone.
Costing between Rs. 5,000 and 15, 000, the sinks are produced in 10 colours at the company’s Gujarat plant.
“We are one amongst the four companies in the world manufacturing quartz sinks in technical collaboration with Shock & Co., of West Germany,” says Kiran, Marketing Manager, Acrysil Limited.
Quartz is a natural stone but as it is available as granules, the production of sinks has to undergo a long procedure. The granules are crushed into a powder form, mixed with acrylic and then cast into the required shapes. The use of acrylic is for making the end-product non-porous and to get the malleability for the right shape.
As quartz by nature has a natural sheen, the product itself has a demure glimmer throughout.
“Apart from looks, see the advantages of the natural stone which are endless,” says Kiran.
“The product is scratch-proof, it doesn’t react to chemicals or acids, no stain sticks to it, it is non-porous, impact resistant and can withstand heat up to 180 degrees C. If you want to try spilling some turmeric or sauce on it, go on!” says Kiran.
The sinks are quite light compared to granite and according to some of the users, they last long and don’t chip too.
(Carysil sinks are now at display at The Kitchen Show, Koramangala Indoor Stadium.
