Dekton is a sophisticated blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest in glass and porcelain as well as 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.
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.
Dekton is very consistent in both dimension and thickness throughout slab which minimizes the need for field corrections and allows for easy installation.
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.
Dekton is a fireproof material and withstands high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking.
Dekton Things To Consider
Due to this being such an amazing product and difficult to manufacture, this product is classified as a premium cost.
Applications of Dekton
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.
DEKTON is a long-term product for those looking to turn their kitchen into a unique space. It allows greater potential for installation in one piece with no cuts, no joints and no limits. It has the appeal of a completely uniform surface, which fits seamlessly into very different design styles.
DEKTON combines the qualities expected by the chef in all of us. It is a clean surface that is nice to touch and resistant to all the daily grind that takes place in a kitchen over years of use.

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.
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.
Simple Paneling: The 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?
Does granite vary in colour compared to the sample I see in your showroom or online?
