About Dekton® by Cosentino
The ultra-compact surface, Dekton® by Cosentino is a new and innovative surface category created with the objective of becoming a global leader in the world of architecture and design both for indoor and outdoor spaces. The result of an investment of 128 million euros and 22,000 hours of research and development, it is the perfect partner for designers and architects throughout the world.
Dekton® is a sophisticated mixture of the raw materials that are used to manufacture glass, porcelain materials and quartz surfaces. The Dekton® surface can recreate any type of material with a high level of quality. It is manufactured in a large format (320 cm x 144 cm) and thin thicknesses (0.8 cm, 1.2 cm and 2 cm) and has superior technical characteristics:
- High mechanical resistance
- Good resistance to fire and heat
- High scratch resistance
- High UV rays resistance
- High hydrolysis resistance
- Low porosity
- Very good colour stability
- Very good dimensional stability
- High abrasion resistance
- High stain resistance
- Resistance to freezing and thawing
These superior technical characteristics are achieved thanks to the exclusive TSP (Technology of Sinterised Particles), developed by the Cosentino Group R&D team. TSP technology is an ultra-compaction process which makes Dekton® a totally revolutionary low-maintenance, long-lasting product with a multitude of applications.
Prestigious architect and designer Daniel Libeskind created in 2014 “Beyond The Wall”, a spectacular sculpture which was the first architectural and design milestone created with Dekton® by Cosentino.
