Innovation at its finest

Developed for Kraus’ best-selling KBU Kitchen Series, Outlast MicroShield™ uses state-of-the art technology to enhance stainless steel with superior functionality and resistance to damage. The result is a heavy-duty industrial-grade material that masks scratches and scuffs to maintain a like-new appearance over time. Engineered for maximum durability, the steel undergoes a cutting-edge embossing process, creating a textured surface that resists dents and damage from daily use. High wear points reduce contact area with pots and pans, preventing surface damage that can age the sink.


Since thicker steel means a stronger sink, Kraus Outlast MicroShield is a real 16-gauge stainless steel: Not 1.2, not 1.35mm, but always a full 1.5mm thick. For added durability and a quieter kitchen experience, each sink is outfitted with Kraus’ proprietary NoiseDefend™ soundproofing technology, eliminating noise from clattering dishes and waste disposal. The sound dampening system features extra-thick rubber pads, an innovative foil layer that also improves insulation, and non-toxic undercoating to prevent condensation that can damage sink base cabinets.
