Dekton

Dekton is a relatively new material on the market, but it is gaining popularity fast. So far, only the most up to date and fashion forward installers and suppliers offer dekton as a countertop material. However, the versatility of this material makes it useful for many other things including flooring, bathrooms, siding and facades.

Dekton is a manmade material created by sinterizing, meaning compacting, quartz, glass and porcelain under extremely high temperatures. The end product is a highly durable, yet sophisticated material that has both practical and aesthetic appeal.

Appearance

Dekton has a very uniform appearance and is offered in neutral and monochrome colour palettes. Some collections feature textured patterns mimicking natural stone in various shades. The usual finish for dekton is matte, meaning it has a non-reflective surface and a natural texture similar to a leather finish. Being resistant to UV rays, dekton has excellent colour stability.

Maintenance

Unlike natural stone, dekton is very low maintenance. It does not stain, easily chip or crack, nor does it get damaged from heat. Spills and chemicals can be wiped away without leaving a trace and dekton does not require regular maintenance like sealing. Outdoors, dekton holds up just as well. With UV resistance dekton’s surface will not fade or change like quartz’s would if it was constantly in the sun.

Installation

Due to its production process dekton has great advantages during installation. Since dekton slabs are sold in large pieces installation can be done in one piece cuts, without joints, creating a more sleek and uninterrupted appearance. However, it must be professionally installed.

Not many suppliers and installers have this unique material in store. Our team specializes in dekton countertop installation, from precision in measuring to a seamless set up.

Properties

Since dekton is a manmade material it avoids many of the common extra cares natural stone requires. Dekton is not porous, so unlike marble or granite it does not stain and has almost zero water absorption. Due to its ultra-compaction it is resistant to abrasion, chemicals, UV rays, thawing, freezing and is a fireproof material. It is a light, available in different thicknesses and is a cheaper alternative to marble, granite and quartz.
