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
For three generations, BLANCO has quietly and passionately elevated the
standards for luxury sinks, faucets and decorative accessories.
