Dekton Benefits

High Mechanical Resistance

With over 5 times the flexural strength of granite, Dekton can be installed in thinner material over greater spans allowing for up to a 12-inch unsupported overhang on countertops, islands and bartops. Dekton’s high compressive strength makes it an ideal material for walkways, pavers or driveways.

Colour Stability
The manufacturing process used to make Dekton allows us control the pigmentation and decoration of the material giving better colour consistency from slab to slab and resulting in a long lasting product that will not fade over time. The surface you install today will maintain the same new appearance for the life of the product.
Dimensional Stability

Dekton is very consistent in both dimension and thickness throughout slab which minimizes the need for field corrections and allows for easy installation.

Non-porous

Dekton is non-porous and never needs to be sealed. It naturally prevents liquids and gasses from penetrating the surface, making it a low maintenance surface that is easier to clean.

Resistance to Hydrolysis

Dekton is highly resistant to hydrolysis.

Fireproof Material

Dekton is a fireproof material and withstands high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking.

Dekton Things To Consider

Premium Cost

Due to this being such an amazing product and difficult to manufacture, this product is classified as a premium cost. 

Applications of Dekton

Ventilated Facades

The ventilated facade is a high performance solution for building enclosures which takes advantage of mechanical anchoring elements. Through connections between the cladding material and the mechanical assembly, design loads are effectively transferred back to the structural wall, providing a safe and secure facade.

For facades fixed with glue it is very important to select the appropriate adhesives. Mechanical tie-backs may also be used where needed.

Spandrel Dekton panels are used in place of glazing units in curtain wall systems where it is necessary to hide the edges of floor slabs, celling details, insulation , and other building elements.

Bathroom Collection by Cosentino is a unique concept in the architectural sector, based on the use of single materials that offer superior performance and remarkable beauty. The aim of this concept is to offer architects one of the most exclusive ranges for walls and cladding with the widest choice in colours and textures. It also offers a new line in design of wash basins and shower trays made to order, based on the needs of each customer.

Floor Coverings

DEKTON floor convering are a good alternative for areas with high requirements as far as performance and design are concenred, both indoors and outdoors. The revolutionary DEKTON properties allow the designer total freedom to design the format to work, ignoring limitations currently found with other materials, The solution is sutable for installation in office buildings, apartments, and high traffic areas where durablity and abrasion resistance are two important factors. The application is simlar to the placement of pieces in traditional formats but with the advantage of a large format. 

Commercial Use

One of our latest projects was the Henderson outdoor pool! The Dekton application for the showers and bathrooms will be sure to withstand the wear and tear for many years to come. Dekton is easy to maintain with a wide range of colors and applications this product should be considered for your next project.

Siding

Simple PanelingThe siding of indoor and outdoor walls can be achieved by a single siding system, using adhesive cement plaster directly on the outside of the building or the interior support wall, to which the DEKTON pieces are stuck.

Mixed Paneling: The siding of indoor and outdoor walls by mixed panelling, consists of the combination of cement adhesives, with the use of mechanical reinforcing elements embedded in the separation joints between DEKTON pieces and mechanically fixed to the enclosure.

 

Dry Paneling: The siding of indoor and outdoor walls by dry veneer, consists of using a metal substructure affixed to the enclosure, to which the DEKTON pieces are stuck.

Our Frequently Asked Questions

How thick is Dekton?

Dekton comes in three different thinkness 8mm, 12mm, and 20mm.

How do I care for my granite or quartz countertops?

Quartz is a low maintenance countertop, unlike granite which typically requires a new protective top coat at least once a year which is roughly a 45 min process. These surfaces never need to be sealed, unlike some natural stone options. When doing daily cleaning of quartz and granite a mild dish soap and water with a microfibre cloth is all that is needed.

Can I put hot things on quartz or cut on the surface?

Quartz is better at resisting heat in comparison to laminate surfaces like Formica, but when compared to granite or other stone countertops, quartz is not as heat resistant and care should be used. The resin component of the Quartz surfaces makes it vulnerable to direct heat like placing hot pans directly from the oven etc. Trivets and hot pads should be used for hot pans or hot hair tools in the bathroom to keep quartz looking its best.

Quartz is among the most durable counter surfaces you can purchase, and they are scratch resistant under normal usage. It is not indestructible, as any surface can be damaged with extreme abuse, however quartz is durable and withstands well in normal usage. To keep its shine and luster, a cutting board is recommended when using knives.

Does granite vary in colour compared to the sample I see in your showroom or online?

Yes, Granite does vary in colour and pattern as it is a natural stone. As they mine the granite and cut further into the mountain, the granite will begin to change pattern and colour.

 

Can granite or quartz be repaired if damaged?

Depending on the damage. We can repair chips very effectively. Scratches and cracks are much more difficult to repair if at all. Scratches are difficult mostly due to that fact that the surface needs to be polished to remove it from the surface. A deeper scratch can be filled but if linear it is possible that it will not completely fade away. Cracks happen due to stress on the counter and follow either natural fissure lines in the stone or natural places where the tension would release based on the minerals involved. This can also be repaired and filled, however it may not completely fade away and may still be noticeable depending on the stone.
