Surfacing Materials: Cosentino: DektonA material that measures mere millimeters thick but can clad nearly every surface, indoors or out—including walls, floors, stairs, countertops, and even furniture—sounds like science fiction. But Dekton, a new ultra-compact surface by Cosentino, sleekly covers all scenarios.
Manufactured in Spain and now available in the U.S., Dekton is produced from a mixture of raw material found in glass, porcelain, and natural quartz. Slabs are pressed to remove air, creating large-format stone sheets that measure more than ten feet tall and four-and-a-half feet wide, and have thicknesses between eight and thirty millimeters.
The sheets are then baked at high temperatures to achieve zero-porosity, resulting in a high resistance to scratches, stains, abrasions, and extreme heat and cold. Dekton is available in a neutral color palette and a variety of 3D textures.
