Is it a kitchen sink or a bathroom basin ?
Kitchen sink will not have a 32mm trap?
However any compression reducing coupler 40/32 mm will join the two pipes.

Just moved in with my other half to a new house.Funnily the previous occupant had butler sink being used in the bathroom as a basin with black silicone around it.Maybe he was trying to get some retro look or something.I am not sure why ?However i have now changed the original title to basin for future readers.Thanks.
DOH.....all plumbing done and when turned the tap on it turns out there is a weak spot underneath the basin itself.It drips.

I cannot take the basin back as it has been more than a year i purchased it.Is there any epoxy resin i could purchase to fix it.

Is there a crack in the basin ? Where exactly is the leak ?
The crack is in the body of the basin just behind the waste hole underneath.It looks like a manufacturing defect to me, as it is in a round shape and have tiny holes.When the tap is on it drips heavily from this.I would say it is the size of 1p coin.
drip is where it leaks.It is a round hole and the area is just above the overflow on the basin.If i remove the basin waste then this area is hidden from above.
I cannot take the basin back as it has been more than a year i purchased it.

From that photo, it appears it would be a manufacturing defect, proven that it existed before with photo, provided you have your receipt or proof of purchase (bank statement) then you would be able to return.
uploaded again.
