What Is Dekton?
Dekton is a type of man-made quartz that is far more durable than any other quartz products. An “ultra compact surface,” dekton is made from a combination of materials that are also used to make quartz, glass and porcelain. However, it is unique, as it is brand new and created from the process known as “Sinterized Particle Technology.” It involves mixing raw materials under extremely intense heat and pressure. The result is a nearly infallible countertop that is extremely easy to maintain.
Facts About Dekton
1. Features Zero Porosity
Zero porosity essentially means that the material does not need to be sealed at any point whatsoever. Most other countertop materials require sealing or they will begin to discolour from foods, liquids and other products. Dekton is completely stain resistant and resistant to cracking, making that worry impertinent.
2. Ultra Size & Thickness
Dekton slabs are very large; they also come in different thickness types for you to choose from based on your desired design and the application. Dekton material is also quite light, which leaves endless design possibilities for large kitchen countertops or even floor tiling.
3. Heat and Cold Resistant
Most countertop materials are heat or cold resistant to a degree. No material can match dekton extreme toughness, as it is able to resist extreme heat, cold and even fire. Drop a hot pot on your countertop? Not to worry. The material is fireproof and thermal-shock proof which makes it able to resist both extreme hot and cold temperatures. Dekton offers more than five times the strength of granite when it comes to durability. It’s a countertop material that will last a lifetime.
4. Scratch Resistant
Dekton is virtually impossible to scratch, which means you don’t have to worry about damaging it while you prepare your meals. In fact, your knives and other sharp utensils will be damaged from blunt force rather than any scratch to the dekton surface. Its exceptional density allows for cutting right on the countertop and rough pans to slide on the surface without any worry.
