Unlike other surfaces, Dekton is entirely Stain Proof. You can effortlessly remove stubborn stains such as wine, coffee, markers and rust stains simply by wipping down the surface. Dekton is chemically resistant due to the stone’s low porosity and not containing any resins. Even drops of chemicals like bleach, drain cleaners or oven degreasers will not harm Dekton.

5 Reasons why Dekton could be your perfect choice
Dekton is the latest innovation of Cosentino. For those who are not familiar with stones, Dekton is the name that was recently added to the engineered (man-made) stone list. Pro Stone is one of the providers of this new product and here are a few reasons why Dekton could be the right choice for you!
So… what is Dekton?
“Dekton is a sophisticated blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest in glass and porcelain as well as the highest quality quartz work surfaces.” – by Dekton USA
Thus, it is a blend of quartz, glass and porcelain that is combined together into a strong and fabulous slab. It comes in an ultra size of 1440mm x 3200mm with thicknesses of 8mm, 12mm and 20mm.
Dekton can be used for indoor and outdoor projects like kitchen counters, worktops, floors and facades.
Now… let’s shift gears to why you could pick Dekton for your next project!
With Dekton you can bid farewell to the “3 biggest enemies” of the countertops, namely, STAIN, SCRATCH and HEAT damage.
Dekton is highly scratch resistant and will not be damaged when using knives on its surface; however it is recommended to use cutting boards in order to care for your household utensils.
You can place crock pots or hot household utensils on Dektons surfaces with no worry of damage since it withstands high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking the stone.
Since Dekton manufacturers control the pigmentation and decoration of the material, they are able to give a better colour consistency from slab to slab making a long lasting product which will not lose colour over time. “The surface you install today will maintain the same new appearance for the life of the product.”- by Dekton USA
Dekton does not need to be sealed since it is non-porous. It is a low maintenance surface since liquids and gasses do not penetrate it.
According to the company, Dekton can be used for long term indoor & outdoor applications as it will not fade or degrade due to its high resistance to ultra violet (UV) light.
Dekton has high resistance to abrasion and thus can be used for commercial applications and high traffic areas such as flooring. “Dekton’s finish will last for the life of the product and never needs to be re-surfaced or re-finished.” – by Dekton USA
Ice & Thawing Resistance
Dekton is Thermal Shock proof from both extreme heat and extreme cold. It is a perfect choice for hot and cold environments.
