Dekton is a new material for work surfaces developed by Cosentino (known for composite brand Silestone). The range of colours on offer is gradually expanding, and besides the uniform colours, it currently also includes a number of gorgeous natural stone and concrete look-a-likes.

The Dekton production process uses techniques and materials from the ceramics, glass and composite production industries. With the application of high pressure and high temperatures, an ultra-compact mass is produced.

 

Dekton finishes

Dekton is available in a matt, brushed surface (satin), as well as with an X-gloss high-gloss finishing (polished). Each surface gives your kitchen a unique look, but they share a number of very practical and hygienic characteristics.

Dekton’s colour is generally very consistent. But, because it consists of natural raw materials, any differences in colour and structure compared to the colour samples can never be ruled out.

 

Dekton in everyday use

Although the characteristics vary slightly depending on the colour, ceramic can generally be characterised as follows:

 

Scratch resistance

Dekton satin  + + + + + + [excellent]
Dekton polished  + + + + + [good]

 

Heat resistance

Dekton satin  + + + + + + [excellent]
Dekton polished  + + + + + + [excellent]

 

Stain resistance

Dekton satin  + + + + + + [excellent]
Dekton polished  + + + + + + [excellent]

 

In comparison to granite and quartz, Dekton are susceptible to damage from impact or point loads. Care should therefore be taken with pointed and/or heavy objects that could drop onto the surface.
