Blanco Silgranite Guide
Granite sinks made of Silgranit
Making virtually all sink dreams come true
The sink that cleans itself. It’s what we all dream of. Unfortunately, it doesn't yet exist. But our granite sink made of Silgranit PuraDur gets you very close to the dream. And that makes it the perfect focus of your dream kitchen.
Save yourself hours of scrubbing. Enjoy chopping and frying food together with your loved ones, then savouring a delicious meal in good company. In between, rinse off large dishes and wipe down your Silgranit sink. Done. Drops of sauce run off into the bowl practically by themselves. Crumb and dirt remain lying on the surface. One wipe, and it's all gone. This is the sink for today.
A Silgranit sink:
is pure class. And remains that way for many years.
is very easy to clean.
is scratch-proof and resistant.
has an anti-bacterial and dirt-repellent effect.
is easy to maintain.
Colourful yet resistant
This combination of properties protects it from environmental influences – they simply have no effect. This is down to the material mixture. The material remains clean. Dirt may lie on its surface, but it cannot penetrate. Fluoropolymers support this process by preventing acids and bacteria from penetrating. These polymers are also found in substances such as Teflon. The special combination of materials that go into Silgranit PuraDur make it resistant to heat and scratches.
Life is colourful. Maybe your kitchen could be, too? Just as well that Silgranit pigments can give your sink colourful accents – providing a contrast with your kitchen fittings. Or making the perfect match. However you like it.

A breeze to clean
Chopped beetroot on the white granite sink. A red wine glass left on the drainer. This can cause nasty stains. But now? It’s no problem for Silgranit. Often the stain can simply be washed away by running the mixer tap. Just like that. That’s when a kitchen mixer tap with a pull-out spray really comes into its own.
Leaving teabags lying in the bowl. Overlooking a coffee mark the previous evening. Often marks have already dried out before we spot them. How do you clean a granite sink when this happens?
With Silgranit, you can wipe marks away.
Take a soft sponge and some washing-up liquid, give it a wipe, rinse off and dry. Rub more stubborn stains away gently with the rough side of the sponge. This will also remove metal abrasion from pots.
Steadfast: this material puts up resistance.
Oops! Get distracted for a second while washing up, and a dish or pot can tumble into the bowl. We all know what it’s like. There’s no call to be alarmed – your granite sink made of Silgranit can take it. It is resistant.
The special thing is that Silgranit PuraDur isn’t a coating. The material goes all the way through. That makes your granite bowl as enduringly beautiful as it was on the day you got it. As we know that everyday tasks really put your kitchen sink through its paces. It’s great to have a sink that is also a tough performer.
Hygienic: reassuringly safe
A kitchen sink has to put up with a lot over the course of the day. In the morning, leftover milk is poured into the sink. At lunchtime, some chicken may accidentally slip into the bowl after being washed. In the evening, vegetables may be chopped on the drainer. Nothing to worry about? Absolutely. Granite sinks made of Silgranit PuraDur come with the patented ‘Hygiene+Plus’ protection formula. This means that the material has anti-bacterial properties and a dirt-repellent effect. This ensures safety in every eventuality and facilitates thorough cleaning.
As such, your child can set their lolly down on the sink at any time, and then carry on licking it a while later.
Food-safe: preserving taste
You can rest assured that a peach, fresh mushrooms or sliced apple will taste exactly as they should. Even if you’ve left them lying on or in your sink for hours. The magic phrase is ‘food-safe’. Your fruit and vegetables won’t take on any other odour or flavour. This is because your Silgranit sink doesn’t give off any substances. Nothing. One hundred per cent. You can leave tomatoes and mushrooms lying on it with a clear conscience.
Keep your showpiece looking radiant
You’ll find yourself smiling upon entering your kitchen. Isn’t it fabulous? Your granite sink made of Silgranit looks so fresh – no scratches, no dull patches, no stains. If your sink is dirty, trickle a little washing-up liquid onto the soft side of a sponge, then wipe it over your bowl. Rinse it down with cold, clear water. Now dry it off, ideally with a microfibre cloth, and you’re done! Your sink is sparkling once again. And so are you!
It goes without saying that we use only materials of the very highest quality in BLANCO granite sinks. We produce the acrylate, the base material, ourselves. Checked, time and time again. Tested, time and time again. Improved, time and time again.
We’re only satisfied when you are. We want your sink to be as beautiful, clean and radiant after many years as it was on the day it was installed in your kitchen. BLANCO granite sinks are of consistently high quality and made to DIN standards. Yet they also differ from one another.
