What is Dekton® stone?

Dekton® is a surface that is made from several materials. The materials are found in a variety of raw materials and processed to create this surface called Dekton®.

This new product is made from a mixture of inorganic raw materials that are found in glass, porcelain tiles and natural quartz. The PST (Particle Sintering Technology) process is a way to speed up the process of metamorphism, using extreme heat and pressure much like the natural process. This process was exclusively developed by Cosentino.

Dekton® Characteristics

Some of the stand out characteristics of Dekton® are…

  • Highly Resistant to (UV) Light
  • Non-porous Surface
  • Temperature Resistant

Dekton® is a very desirable material that many homeowners love. Granite and quartz are natural stone options that have these characteristics to a degree but Dekton® surfaces are more UV resistant, less porous, and more temperature resistant.

Dekton® Advantages

Dekton® has many advantages which include, durability, versatility, maintainability and a unique appearance. They include a non-porous finish that is generated by the sintering process making them highly scratch resistant. Cosentino does recommend using a cutting board to protect your utensils from the surface, not to protect your surface from the utensils.

The non-porous surface also means it’s stain-resistant and heat resistant.

Dekton® has other advantages such as…

  • High Mechanical Resistance
  • Colour Stability
  • Non-combustibility
  • Resistance to Hydrolysis
  • Dimensional Stability

These particular advantages make it a versatile material that can be used for various purposes including countertops, flooring and wall panels. It has been used for many indoor and outdoor applications around the world too.

Dekton® Colours

Dekton® colours that are available are varied and diverse. Filled with textures and patterns they suit many interior styles, offering a distinct look and feel. No matter what project you have embarked on, Dekton® will give you a durable, modern solution that is perfect for your purpose.
