The cartridge is the centrepiece of every mixer and where the ceramic discs are located. They are made from a space-proven ceramic alloy, one gliding over the other with utmost precision. The polished mirror-like surface of the discs is then coated with a special lubricant with Teflon® technology for friction-free performance. The lever handle of the mixer is connected to the discs by a solid brass element for maximum strength and durability. It is essential that the machining and quality of these precision parts are of the highest standards, so that they deliver unrivalled performance.
GROHE is one of the world’s leading tap manufacturers and one of the few that manufacture their own cartridges. Our cartridges are manufactured in a high-tech process and feature discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy. The polished mirror-like surface of the discs is then coated with a special Teflon lubricant for frictionless operation. And because our taps are designed withstand years of use, we incorporate micro-chambers of this lubricant within the cartridge – for a lifetime of maintenancefree operation.
As a result of this state-of-the art technology, our taps have an extra-wide operating angle, allowing you to exactly manage the water flow and temperature. Like all our technologies, GROHE SilkMove® is yet another perfect example of design and technology working in harmony to give you an enhanced water experience.
