Discover Silestone XM – Redefining Mineral Surfaces4 min read

Cosentino introduces Silestone XM, the new generation of mineral surfaces. This comes from the successful evolution of Hybriqtechnology that was launched in 2020. Silestone XM distinguishes Silestone colours and collections brought to the market by having a maximum crystalline silica content of 10%.

Seven years ago, the pioneering Hybriq+®  technology development commenced, culminating in its introduction in 2020. This significant milestone reflects Cosentino’s ambitious dedication to research, development, and innovation in the global decorative and design surfaces sector. Through Hybriq, Cosentino has fundamentally revolutionised the essence of its Silestone product, prioritising enhanced safety and sustainability.

Under this groundbreaking innovation, Silestone transformed its manufacturing process, becoming sustainable with the use of 100% renewable electrical energy and 99% recycled water. Furthermore, its composition was entirely reformulated, substantially reducing the crystalline silica content by incorporating new premium minerals and a minimum of 20% recycled raw materials, including glass. Despite these changes, the product maintains its consistent physical and mechanical performance, as well as its hallmark high-quality design and colour depth.

This year, Cosentino marks a significant milestone with the introduction of Silestone XM, a comprehensive collection being launched in 2024, along with existing colours manufactured with less than 10% crystalline silica. The company’s objective is to eventually incorporate its whole colour portfolio under this new brand. This achievement stands as Cosentino’s most significant recent contribution to advancing its industry, aiming to set the surface industry on a path towards core values of enhanced sustainability, circular economy, and safety across the value chain.
