What’s cast iron sink made of?
The main raw material of a cast iron sink, cast iron, is a group of carbon-iron alloy with a carbon content of more than 2%. Cast iron sinks are very brittle and extremely heavy. But they are also quite durable. What’s more, this kind of sink is environment-friendly since some of cast iron sinks are made of recycled iron. After the foundation is ready, layers of enamel will be sprayed on the surface to make the final sink shiny and smooth.
