Now you can get an integral look with your kitchen sink using plastic laminate countertops. Wilsonart offers a series of integrated sinks in various styles and different sizes. They are available in solid colors of pure white or ivory. Some are designed for kitchen areas and others will work with bathroom vanity laminate countertops.
The product is made out of one hundred percent (100%) acrylic material. The color is solid all the way through the sink. This basically means that the satin finish can be scrubbed with a Scotch Brite pad if a horrible stain accidentally gets in the finish. The installation videos I watched actually show the material being sanded with a vibrating sander.
