Pral is an artificial material, resembling marble, granite, wood or metal. It is available in various hues, divided into eight categories: Ice, Sand, Stone, Crystal, Water, Musk, Earth and Rainbow. The colours of the materials are through and through and not just on the surface. When it was first launched, Pral was used almost exclusively in kitchens and bathrooms for sinks, shelves, shower cubicles, bath tubs, etc. because of its resistance to shocks, scratches, acids, heat and scorching and its warm feel.
Instead of its normal satin appearance it can be polished to create a very smooth and shiny surface. And because it can be hot formed and is translucent, it can also become a work of art.
