Whilst coloured sinks and taps are not new to the market, they haven’t been able to perform well enough to allow for high use without becoming prone to fading and unsightly scratches revealing the stainless steel underneath the PVD colour coating.
Ikon launched its first collection of PVD coated coloured stainless sinks in a charcoal finish back in 2015. Since then, Ikon has undertaken extensive research into improving the quality of coloured stainless steel which led to the development of iKolor which was launched late 2017 and was available in eight colours.
To create the unique iKolor technology, Ikon imports raw materials from all over the world and applies its own formula in its manufacturing facility in the Waikato. iKolor-ed sinks are less prone to fading than other coloured sinks currently on the market and do not reveal the stainless steel underneath through normal wear and tear, unless excessive force has been applied with sharp objects.
Ikon is now confident and ready to take iKolor to the next level and showcase what’s possible when it comes to adding colour to the kitchen, including colouring the stainless steel components of kitchen appliances such as ovens, rangehoods and dishwashers.
The iKolor technology is transferrable to other industries and opens up a new realm of creative design possibilities, not just in the kitchen.
iKolor is now offered in 24 colours with the ability to colour match over 5,000 colours and comes with a 10-year warranty when purchased via one of Ikon’s Premium Partners.
