Choosing the perfect kitchen worktop can often be a daunting task, with so much choice of materials and properties plus wanting it to not only highlight your kitchen perfectly but to also display your personality, it can often be overwhelming. With this in mind, we wanted to highlight one of the best in the business: Dekton by Cosetino.
Dekton® has a number of properties that make it a unique for indoor applications, but also, thanks to its resistance to the sun’s rays, it is perfect for outdoor surfaces, making it the versatile material par excellence.
Range of thicknesses
Dekton® is offered in slabs of varying thicknesses that can be adapted to your design based on the application and the desired effect.
Dekton® is offered in large-format slabs that open up avenues of design that had previously been unthinkable.
High UV Resistance
Dekton is highly resistant to ultraviolet (UV) rays and has superior colour fastness so it doesn’t fade over time, making it the perfect choice for both interior and exterior applications.
High Scratch Resistance
Dekton® is a highly scratch-resistant surface. Domestic utensils will not scratch it. However, we do recommend that chopping boards are used to protect the utensils.
The new Dekton surface is highly resilient thanks to its low porosity, resisting accidental stains from domestic use as well as from chemical agents. Even tough stains such as wine, coffee, ink, and rust can be easily cleaned.
High Fire and Heat Resistance
Dekton® boasts excellent resistance to high temperatures without compromising on its aesthetics or features. Hot utensils, electrical appliances, pots, and pans can all be placed directly on the surface without causing any damage.
Dekton® is even more resistant to abrasion than granite, which makes it the ideal surface for commercial applications and high-traffic areas such as flooring and facades. While other surfaces will show the effects of wear and tear over time, Dekton’s finish will last for the entire life of the product and will never need to be replaced or retouched.
