Enameled Cast Iron
- Enamel is a powder coating applied to an iron casting and is a combination of clay, quartz, feldspar, silica, and color pigments.
- When exposed to high temperatures, the coating melts and fuses to the casting, creating a glass-like surface.
- The thickness of KOHLER® enamel provides outstanding protection against dents, chipping, and scratching while offering deep color integrity.
- Enameled cast iron is available in a wide variety of colors and can be formed into unique shapes.
- Enameled cast iron is made from recycled products and is recyclable.
- Vitreous china is made from a clay base that is coated with a glaze and then fired at an intense heat to fuse the clay and glaze.
- The ceramic materials of vitreous china offer a smooth, durable, nonporous surface that will not rust, fade, or discolor.
- Vitreous china is ideal for intricate designs with a glossy finish. The material is often used in Artist Editions® sinks.
- Fireclay sinks are made from dense clay that is heated and cured. The clay holds its shape through the firing process and maintains intricate designs and shapes.
- The glazed sink surface is nonporous and easy to clean.
- Fireclay is very durable and perfect for heavy-duty use.
- Stainless steel is a durable, easy-to-clean material.
- Typically made with a brushed finish, stainless steel can be polished to a mirror surface to highlight the design lines and product contours.
- Products made from stainless steel may have different thicknesses, depending on the gauge of the steel. The lower the gauge, the thicker the material. Premium sinks are made from 16- and 18-gauge stainless steel.
