A good choice if you are looking for complete creative freedom and unequalled hardness. If you choose Core, there are no limits to the possibilities. We can give you the kitchen design of your dreams: exclusive worktops, cooking islands and bridge solutions.
All without visible joins. And you will get a worktop that will retain its appearance year after year and require a minimum of maintenance. Due to the unique mouldability of the material, your kitchen sink can be manufactured in the same material – sink and worktop will merge to create a harmonious overall effect.
What are Core?
Core is a German-made acrylic based solid surface material with unique dimensional stability. The thickness of 10 mm provides stability for exclusive kitchen and bathroom worktops, but can also be built up to a worktop up to 60mm in thickness.
Both solutions provide a beautiful solution that is easy to clean, can be repaired and it is possible to make hidden joints. The surface appears dull and soft at the same time as it is very closed.
(Core • 10 mm • 20/30 mm • 40 mm • 60 mm)
When it comes to daily use and wear and tear, Core are simply a dream. The materials are highly resistant to minor bumps and knocks. On the other hand, you should never put hot dishes and pans directly on the surface.
The composite material is fully sealed and non-porous. Therefore, you will never have to worry about spills resulting in discolouration and stains. Nevertheless, we recommend wiping up red wine and other coloured liquids immediately.
If the worktop has scratches, burn marks or any other type of damage, Core can be repaired in your own kitchen by a specialist and be as good as new. And because the worktop is colour-ingrained, sanding or other repairs will not leave visible marks.
Core can be shaped to any design when heated. Not only can we shape your sink, we can create the most complex design details.
When the various Core elements are bonded together, the join will be almost invisible once the fitter is finished with sanding and polishing. In other words, almost any kitchen design is possible: from integrated or moulded sinks to worktops in endless lengths (or thicknesses) and bridge solutions with invisible joins.
Fitting the sink
You can get flat glued, under glued or under milled a large selection of different steel sinks and composite sinks from our range.
The sink is at the same level as the worktop and the join between the two is filled with silicone.
The sink is fitted approximately 2.5 mm below the bevelled top edge of the worktop.
The entire cross-section of the worktop is visible around the sink.
