Some of the key performance features of Karran
• Stain resistance
Karran sinks are completely stain proof. In over 20
years of selling Karran sinks in Europe, South
Africa, Australia, Canada and the USA, nothing has
ever been found that will permanently stain the
• Bacterial resistance
Hygiene for you and your family is of vital
importance. Karran cannot absorb any substance due
to its incredibly high density. It is completely
non-porous. Therefore bacteria and germs cannot
impregnate the surface of a Karran sink. Karran
vanity bowls do not have overflows as these are
areas prone to bacteria growth. For a truly sanitary
environment, choose an undermount sink seamlessly
installed under laminate or solid surface.
• Scratch resistance
Karran's satin finish, as well as the fact that the
color goes all the way through the material,
disguises scratches to the surface that may occur
through use over time. While Karran is difficult to
scratch, some scratches may occur. These scratches
are easily removable using a 3M Scotch-Britekarran
pad, and if necessary, a fine grit sandpaper.
• Heat resistance
Karran sinks can withstand heat temperatures up to
365. However, it is always a good practice to not
place a hot pot or pan directly into your sink.
Always allow hot pots and pans to cool before
placing them in any sink, or alternatively, run cold
water into a pot when placing it in a sink.
• Thermal shock
Many solid surface sinks may develop cracks when
exposed to rapid temperature changes caused by
boiling hot water or iced water. Karran is immune to
such cracking, due to its reinforced backing. Karran
sinks will never crack due to thermal cracking.
• Impact resistance
A Karran sink has a certain amount of flexibility to
it, unlike other more rigid solid surface sinks.
This means that if you drop an item like a glass
casserole dish into it, firstly the sink will not
break and secondly the casserole dish may not break
• Ease of cleaning
Karran is so dense that all dirt, whether it be
coffee, grape juice, mustard or ketchup, merely sits
on the surface. A rinse of water, and sometimes a
wipe with cloth or sponge, is all that is needed to
clean your sink. However, cleaning with all types of
scouring pads and abrasive cleaners is recommended,
and will not harm the sink in any way.
