Leading Plumbing Fixture Brand Develops a New Stainless Steel Sink Finish That Matches Black Stainless Steel Appliances

Port Washington, NY- Kraus USA, a leading manufacturer of kitchen sinks and faucets, has recently expanded on their popular and innovative Kore™ Stainless Steel Workstation Series with the release of new models featuring a striking PVD Gunmetal Finish.

“Consumers seeking the durability and reliability of a stainless steel sink should not be limited in their color options,” stated Todd Alexander, VP of Operations and Product Development at Kraus. “We want to provide them with the same design flexibility that they have when selecting faucet finishes. And the PVD Gunmetal finish is a big step in that direction for our product portfolio.”

Designed with an integrated workstation ledge which defines this sink style, the Kore series is engineered to support an array of sliding accessories that streamline every kitchen task – from meal prep to cleanup. Accessory options ranging from cutting boards and colanders, to serving boards and drying racks, allow users to work directly over the sink, saving valuable space on the kitchen counters.

Offering a unique color option for stainless steel sinks, the PVD Gunmetal finish has a modern appearance that blends well with black stainless steel appliances which have seen a surge in popularity in recent years. Like most Kraus stainless steel sinks, these models are made with proprietary TRU16 real 16 gauge stainless steel which is the thickest steel available on the market. DuraShield™ PVD finish application results in a color coating that bonds completely to the steel surface, greatly improving resistance to chips, and corrosion. The finish features a sandblasted matte texture that resists water spots and fingerprints while further enhancing the modern look.

Available in a variety of sizes, the Kore Workstation with PVD Gunmetal finish is produced in topmount, undermount, and farmhouse mounting styles, giving consumers further control over the look of their kitchen.

“Color is no longer a limitation for stainless steel – PVD finish opens up the door to unlimited possibility,” says Russel Levi, General Manager of Kraus. “Other sink materials give consumers the option to match the color of their appliances or create a unique centerpiece with ‘wow factor’. Now stainless steel offers the same opportunity for customization.”
