What is Silestone?
Advantages of Silestone Countertops & Surfaces
Silestone quartz countertops have an unparalleled durability and strength because it is made of Natural Quartz – the 4th hardest mineral found in nature. The only natural minerals harder than quartz are diamond, sapphire and topaz. Silestone countertops are made of a hard, dense and non-porous material that is consistent throughout its composition, making it more reliable than any other natural stone.
Silestone is National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved and GREENGUARD-certified to be safe for the kitchen indoor environment, which makes it a cleaner and safer than other surfaces. Silestone countertops are the only surfaces made with built-in antimicrobial protection that safely fights the growth of microbes such as odor causing bacteria, mold, and mildew for the life of the product. This makes Silestone countertops and surfaces easier to clean, and they stay cleaner between cleanings.
Common household accidents such as a dropped knife, a fallen piece of glass or errant scissors will not scratch Silestone because only materials as hard as, or harder than Silestone will scratch it. Beware: no surface is indestructible.
Because Silestone is non-porous, most spills stay on the surface and are easy to clean with soapy water or a mild household cleaners.
Heat & Scorch Resistant
Sile Stone Systems Countertops and surfaces will withstand limited exposure to heat without burning or scorching. The fire of a lit match will not mar the Silestone countertop. However, as advised by crock-pot and electric skillet manufacturers, do not place these items directly on any countertop. We recommend the use of trivets when placing hot items on a Silestone surface to avoid thermal shock.
A huge advantage with Silestone is that it is easy to keep clean and maintain. It cleans with soap and water and in most cases it just needs to be wiped over with a dry cloth to remove the dirt. It never needs sealers.
