Yes, our kitchen sinks are able to handle thermal shock, even at high temperature (up to 280°C) without permanent damage.
The extremely high mineral charge of our material makes it so our kitchen sinks are highly resistant to scratches, dents and wear. Most of our products also have a special anti-scratch surface.
Color is one of the featured elements of PLADOS-TELMA kitchen sinks. Thanks to the high resistance to ultraviolet rays, our kitchen sinks do not lose their color overtime and they keep their fresh beauty. Color does not change even if the kitchen sink is directly exposed to sunlight.
Our kitchen sinks are very resistant to daily usage. Dirt and spots can be removed with a quick rinse and a sponge. PLADOS-TELMA's composite material is extremely easy to clean. A standard soap and a sponge is all that's needed to keep it clean. Limestone can be removed with universal detergents easily obtainable.

ARIAPURA identifies our composite sinks featuring titanium biosside nanoparticles. This natural component enables the "photocatalysis", which is similar to photosyntesis and turns polluted organisms within the kitchen into harmless mineral salts.
Microstop enables a bacteria protection throughout time against bacteria reproduction, thus preventing mold, stains and unpleasant smells. Microstop's protection works through silver ions and is within the whole sink, remaining fully active even if the sink has scratches. It lasts for the lifetime of the product. Microstop is available in each and every PLADOS and TELMA's composite kitchen sinks, without any additional cost.
It's a new technology that enables a constant and unlimited protection against dirt, which often causes stains and unpleasant smells. It lasts for the lifetime of the product.
