Porcelain Slabs/Countertop DEKTON
DEKTON is a new brand and revolutionary product that enhance any ambient engineered stone supplier worldwide. DEKTON is made by mixing a highly developed mix of porcelain, quartz, glass and raw material resulting in and ultra-compact surface that is highly resistant to heat, freeze, scratches, staining whilst being suitable for both indoors and outdoors applications.
The highly resistant of DEKTON to UV rays ensures the material won’t degrade nor fade with the passage of time and its low coefficient of thermal expansion ensures there won’t be thermal shocks when exposed to either high heat and/or freezing conditions. Its high abrasion resistance offers a product that is easy to work on, ensuring the surfaces never need sealing.
Thanks to DEKTON size and lightness the possibilities for new designs in kitchens, bathrooms, facades, walls or high-traffic flooring grow at an exponential rate.
DEKTON products comes in very different sizes: 27.5”x27.5”, 41.5″x55″, 41.5″x27.5″, 31″x55″, 62″x27.5″, 62″x55″, 55”x27.5”, 55”x55” and 56”x126”
Thickness of DEKTON products are 8mm, 12mm, 20mm and 30mm and their finishes are Polished, Smooth mate, Textured.
The advantages of DEKTON large format tiles are:
– High UV Resistance
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.
– Highly 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.
– Resistance to stains
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 degreasers won’t harm DEKTON.
– High resistance to fire and heat
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.
– Resistance to abrasion
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.
– Resistance to ice & thawing
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.
– High mechanical resistance
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 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.
– Color stability
The manufacturing process used to make DEKTON allows us control the pigmentation and decoration of the material giving better color consistency from slab to slab and resulting in a long lasting product that will not fade over time. The surface you install today will maintain the same new appearance for the life of the product.
– 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.
– Resistance to hydrolysis
DEKTON is highly resistant to hydrolysis
– Fireproof material
DEKTON is a fireproof material and withstands high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking.
