What is Dekton?

Dekton is an ultracompact surface that consists of a sophisticated blend of raw materials. It's level of compaction contributes significantly to the material's low porosity making it a low maintenance, long life product. 

What are the main advantages of Dekton?

Other than how fabulous it looks. Dekton is so hard wearing, making it the perfect choice for hard working kitchens. Here are it's key advantages:

High UV resistance. Dekton is higly resistant to UV light and will not face or degrade over time, great for both indoor and outdoor applications

Highly scratch-resistant. It is the most scratch resistant surface on the market.

Resistant to stains. While other surfaces are stain resistant, Dekton is completely stain proof. Even the most stubborn stains like wine, coffee, markers and rust can be easily removed from the surface. Since Dekton has extremely low porosity and contains no resins, it is chemically resistant. Drips or splashes of common household chemicals like bleach, drain cleaners or oven degreasers won't harm Dekton. 

High resistance to fire and heat. Dekton withstands high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking. Hot pots and appliances like crock pots can be placed directly on the surface with no worry of damage. 

Resistant to abrasion. Dekton is even more resistant to abrasion than granite making it the ideal surface for commercial applications and high traffic areas such as flooring. While other surfaces show wear over time, Dekton's finish will last for the life of the product and never needs to be resurfaced of resealed. 

Resistant to ice & thawing. Dekton's low coefficient of thermal expansion makes it thermal shock proof from both extreme heat and extreme cold. It's natural resistance to ice and thawing makes it perfect for use in even the coldest environments. 

Dekton comes in 3 different thicknesses depending on application requirements, the desired design and effect in 8, 12 and 20mm. Making it very versatile however you want to use it
