What is this sink material?


Recommended Posts

Look like the same sink I have, bought at lowes. It is some form of hard plastic, like corian I guess. The color is not just on the surface of the material but all the way through. If a teenage boy throws a cermanic bowl in the sink out of anger both the sink and the bowl will shatter.

And when I say shatter, I don't mean it cracked - it shattered into numerous pieces and pretty much the entire bottom of the sink was gone. Of course I don't blame the sink, I don't expect it to withstand such forces. I like the sink and replaced it with the same sink - I have no complaints, except with my son.

I went with 'composite' which came up in a google search as well, thanks, Gary. That made two hits for composite and composite is a nebulous word I can use for a lot of things. 'Composite' needs to be stored away for future use.

And I considered 'man-made composite'. But stainless steel is also man-made, as is enameled cast iron and porcelain, come to think of it. In fact, they are all composite materials, too. ?? [:)]

Sorry to hear about your sink hole, Mark. The teens can be rough on houses for sure.

I'll trade you a sink for 3 wooden 4x4 mailbox post and mailboxes! On his way to school, my son took out 3 in a row last week on our street when a spider decided to drop out of the sun visor and on to his chest!
