The manufacturing process used to make Dekton colors controls the pigmentation and decoration of the material giving it a better color consistency from slab to slab, which results in a long lasting product that will not fade over time. The portfolio of Dekton colors come from a blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest technology in glass, porcelain, and quartz. The Dekton color you choose for your countertops or surfaces today will maintain the same new appearance for the life of the product.
The Stability of Dekton Colors
Ultra Performance of Dekton Colors
Dekton Colors are UV Resistant
Dekton is highly resistant to ultra violet (UV) light and will not fade or degrade over time making it perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Dekton Colors are Scratch Resistant
Dekton is the most scratch resistant surface on the market and while the slip of a knife won’t damage Dekton, cutting boards are still recommended to protect your household utensils.
Dekton Colors are Stain Resistant
While other surfaces are stain resistant, Dekton is completely Stain Proof. Even the most stubborn stains like wine, coffee, markers and rust can easily be removed from the surface. Since Dekton has extremely low porosity and contains no resins, it is chemical resistant. Drips or splashes of common household chemicals like bleach, drain cleaners or oven de-greasers won’t harm Dekton.
Dekton Colors are Heat Resistant
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.
Dekton Colors are Abrasion Resistant
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 re-surfaced or re-finished.
Dekton Colors are Cold Resistant
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 Colors Have Flexural Strength
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 Colors are 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.
Dekton Colors Have 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.
