The Full Story
Dekton is Cosentino's line of Ultra-Compact Surfaces. Dekton would not be possible without this special concept of ultra-compaction, allowing them to produce surfaces of a size and thinness that was previously unimaginable, yet still ensuring extreme levels of performance.
Ultra-compaction is responsible for the material's mechanical properties. This level of compaction contributes significantly to the material's low porosity, making it a low-maintenance, long-life product. Everything to do with Dekton is extraordinary.
In the development of Dekton, they firstly sinterize the raw materials using basic components to oversee the whole process and the characteristics of the particles used in the manufacturing process. The process uses up to 16 different decorative techniques which allow three-dimensional design models and an endless array of aesthetic possibilities.
Dekton is a sophisticated blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest in glass and porcelain, as well as the highest quality quartz work surfaces.
High UV Resistance
Dekton is highly resistant to UV light and will not fade or degrade over time, making it perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Resistant to Fire & Heat
Dekton withstands high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking. Hot Pots and Appliances like Crock Pots can be placed directly on the surface with no worry of damage.
The manufacturing process used to make Dekton allows us control the pigmentation and decoration of the material giving better color consistency from slab to slab and resulting in a long lasting product that will not fade over time.
Dekton is the most scratch resistant surface on the market and while the slip of a knife won’t damage Dekton, cutting boards are still recommended to protect your household utensils.
Resistant to Ice & Thaw
Dekton is Thermal Shock proof from both extreme heat and extreme cold. It’s natural resistance to ice and thawing makes it perfect for use in even the coldest environments.
Dekton is a noncombustible material and withstands high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking.
Resistant to Stains
Dekton is completely Stain Proof. Even the most stubborn stains like wine, coffee, markers and rust can easily be removed from the surface.
Dekton is non-porous and never needs to be sealed. It naturally prevents liquids and gasses from penetrating the surface, making it a low maintenance surface that is easier to clean.
With over 5 times the flexural strength of granite, Dekton can be installed in thinner material over greater spans allowing for up to a 12-inch unsupported overhang on countertops, islands and bartops.
