Elkay Manufacturing has created a Quartz Luxe collection within its Elkay Quartz brand and has added six new colors and 16 models.
The portfolio now includes two quartz materials, 16 colors, and 26 different sink models.
“Our new Elkay Quartz Luxe offerings are designed to exceed the growing consumer desire for natural stone sink options,” says Molly Pajauskas, director of marketing for plumbing products at the company. “At the current growth rate, we see quartz replacing cast iron as the number two sink material by 2017.”
Quartz Luxe products combine quartz with a high-performance UV-stable acrylic resin, creating a sink that is easy to maintain, fade-resistant, and durable, the company says. The company’s Luxe fiberglass material is cast into the sink base for added durability. Additionally, a final finishing process gives the sinks a satin-smooth, non-porous surface that prevents foods, liquids, and bacteria from sticking.
Stain- and odor-resistant and easy to clean, the sinks are heat-resistant up to 535 degrees Fahrenheit. Sinks are available in top, under, and universal mounts and with single, double and Aqua Divide bowls.
