The most important part of this process is to let the epoxy dry at least as long as the manufacturer recommends. You can’t go wrong by letting the epoxy dry for a longer period of time, but you WILL get in trouble if you do not let the epoxy set for the at least the proper amount of time. The result can be a sink that feels secure, but fails under the load of water and dishes. That is not a pretty sight, so be sure to let the epoxy dry.

Construction quality is made up of several factors - how corners are constructed, welding technique and proper dimensions for ease of installation. Quality can vary even when considering sinks made in the same town such as many of the sinks from Mexico. The buyer should make sure they are buying from a legitimate company that knows the product and is not selling \"seconds\". In the world of hand crafted products, not all sinks are created equal and oftentimes there are two or more quality levels sold by the same shop (i.e. \"firsts\" and \"seconds\").

A good quality kitchen sink will be insulated with some type of vibration damping material on the underside of the sink to help alleviate this issue. No one wants to hear a cymbal crash every time they drop a dirty fork in the sink. In addition to keeping the noise down, this insulation will help with condensation build up on the underside of the sink, thus preventing moisture issues in the base cabinet and keeping everything drier and less prone to mold or mildew, so look for a protective coating on the bottom of the sink.
