Dekton ultracompact surfaces are a sophisticated blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest glass and porcelain with the highest quality quartz work surfaces. Dekton employs exclusive Sinterized Particle Technology, a high tech process which represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years.
FEATURES OF DEKTON
♦ Resistance to ultraviolet light prevents fading and degradation over time
♦ Resistance to scratches, stains and chemicals
♦ Resistance to fire and heat makes it able to withstand high temperature without burning, scorching or cracking
♦ Resistance to hydrolysis makes it highly water resistant
♦ Resistance to abrasion lessens the need to be refinished or resurfaced
♦ Resistance to ice thawing makes it perfect for use in even the coldest environments
♦ High mechanical resistance allows for up to a 12-inch unsupported overhang on worktops and islands
♦ Non-porous prevents liquids and gasses from penetrating the surface, making it a low maintenance surface that is easier to clean
♦ Color stability gives better color consistency from slab to slab, resulting in a long-lasting product that will not fade over time
♦ Dimensional stability minimizes the need for field corrections and allows for easy installation

FAQS ON DEKTON
What is ultracompact surface?
Ultracompact surface is a completely new countertop surface that is made by putting the raw materials found in glass, porcelain, and quartz, under extreme heat and pressure to create an almost indestructible material.
Is Dekton heat resistant?
Due to the nature of the material, Dekton is able to withstand high temperatures without burning or cracking. Hot pots and appliances can be placed directly on the surface leaving no burn marks on the surface.
What is the range of thickness and size of Dekton?
Dekton is offered in slabs of varying thicknesses (8mm, 12mm, 20mm, 30mm) that can be adapted to your design based on the application and the desired effect. It is also offered in large-format slabs (3200 mm long x 1440 mm wide) that open up avenues of design that had previously been unthinkable.
What is the sintering process?
Sintering is the process of compacting and forming a solid mass of material by heat or pressure without melting it to the point of liquefaction. Sintering happens naturally in mineral deposits or as a manufacturing process used with metals, ceramics, plastics, and other materials.
