WHAT IS DEKTON?
- DEKTON is a sophisticated mixture of the prime materials used to manufacture the glass, modern porcelain, and quartz surfaces, and an exclusive technological process called Siterized Particle Technology, which involves an accelerated version of the metamorphic changes that natural stone undergoes when exposed to high pressure and temperature over thousands of years.
- DEKTON uses a 25 000-tonne press that turns the panel into a large-format highly resistant ultra-compact surface.
- High UV Resistance – Dekton is highly resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light and will not fade or degrade over time making it perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.
- Highly Scratch-resistant – 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 stains – While other surfaces are stain-resistant, Dekton is completely Stain Proof. Even the most stubborn stains like wine, coffee, markers and rust can easily be removed from the surface. Since Dekton has extremely low porosity and contains no resins, it is chemically resistant. Drips or splashes of common household chemicals like bleach, drain cleaners or oven degreasers won’t harm Dekton.
- High Resistance to fire and 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.
- Resistant to abrasion – Dekton is even more resistant to abrasion than granite making it the ideal surface for commercial applications and high traffic areas such as flooring. While other surfaces show wear over time, Dekton’s finish will last for the life of the product and never needs to be resurfaced or re-finished
- Resistant to ice & thawing – Dekton’s low coefficient of thermal expansion makes it Thermal Shock proof from both extreme heat and extreme cold. Its natural resistance to ice and thawing makes it perfect for use in even the coldest environments.
