Synthetic sinks are an entry level budget sink that offer a range of affordable and stylish designs. Made from (SMC) sheet moulding compound which consists of glass-fibres and reinforced polyester, Synthetic sinks are flexible and can be moulded into any shape, once moulded it then has a protective coating applied (PIMC) which helps to keep the sink resistant to everyday damage.
Synthetic sinks are solid and non-flexible unlike Teflite sinks, they have a rigid finish which is heat resistant to around 240C. Synthetic sinks are also resistant to most household abrasive chemicals due to the smooth finished surface and the protective coating applied at the manufacturing stage. Lightweight and easy to install Synthetic sinks are becoming more popular due to the affordability and ease of owning one. Whilst they are not scratch proof – care must be taken when using the sink, they are designed to be resistant to everyday scrapes such as washing cutlery/dishes.
