What is Dekton?
Manufactured exclusively by Cosentino in Spain, Dekton is indeed a very special material, it is formed using Sinterized Particle Technology which essentially replicates the process of metamorphosis in stone that takes place through thousands of years of exposure to extreme heat and pressure. This process creates an ultra-compact surface, manufactured from a complex mix of raw materials which includes glass, quartz and porcelain that have been fused together under extreme heat without melting and then put through a 25,000 kilo press to create one solid piece. The finished product being an extremely high-quality, durable finished product.
It possesses a number of key characteristics that make it suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. The most commonplace applications for Dekton have been for use in kitchens for cladding and worktops however bathroom walls, floors and countertops are also very popular choices for the material.
In more recent years however Dekton has been used as dining table and coffee tabletops. The fantastic durability and striking designs that Dekton offers can now be replicated in stunning one-off pieces in other areas of the home. With are over 50 styles available both in matt and polished finishes that replicate both natural materials such as stone and marble as well as man-made beautifully striking designs there is something for everyone’s taste and décor.
