In many cartilage type of faucets the problem could be due to a corroded or dirty cartilage. Turn off the water and put a rag in the drain. Remove the faucet head and keep the parts in order, so that it is easy to place them back in their original places. For faucet removal of the spout, you will have to unscrew the screws underneath it, then pop out the faucet head using a knife or nail filer. Underneath this you will see a long cylindrical object, which is the cartilage. Take it out and examine it. Check whether it can be cleaned and fixed back or is beyond repair and needs to be replaced with a new one. For cartilage faucet repair of a dirty faucet, use the warm water and vinegar method and scrub it clean with a toothbrush. You can buy a replacement part for a new cartilage kitchen faucet from a hardware store. Carry the old parts with you to get the exact replacement parts. Then reinstall all the parts in order and check.
Even though, they can withstand a temperature of up to 365 F, polyester/acrylic sinks are prone to thermal shock, which can melt the material. Granite/acrylic composite material withstands a temperature of 535 F.
Now at the spot, the recessed lip of the sink - the place where you would install the new strainer - apply a bead of plumber's putty.
