Dekton Thin Slabs
Dekton is a sophisticated blend of over 20 minerals extracted from nature. Its production process is the result of years of research, development, and innovation in the manufacturing of glass, state-of-the-art porcelain, and quartz surfaces. Electron microscopy makes it possible to appreciate the reduced porosity of the material, a consequence of the sintering and ultra-compaction process exclusive to Dekton. This reduced porosity and the absence of micro-defects causing stresses or weak points are the distinguishing features of Dekton, while also being a 100% eco-friendly product that contains no chemicals (like plastic resins found in quartz) and is a verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) sustainable material. Create an endless array of unique textures and designs for both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Technical Features of Dekton
Sintered Particle Technology
Dekton uses an exclusive SPT in its manufacturing, capable of sintering mineral particles, bonding them together and compacting their internal structure. This innovative technological process mimics and accelerates the processes that natural stone undergoes when exposed to high pressures and temperatures for millenia. Dekton emulates in a few hours what nature takes millennia to do, thanks to the exclusive SPT technology.
→ The furnace has a length of 180 meters (196 yards).
→ Temperatures reach approximately 1250*C (2300*F).
→ Total processing time depends on the thickness of the slab (about 4 hours).
Safety in Facades and Cladding
In order to reinforce safety in ventilated facades and interior cladding, there is the possibility of adhering a safety mesh behind the Dekton slab, specially developed to prevent falls due to breakage. It is a 300 g/m2 fiberglass mesh adhered to the material with epoxy resin. Safety is one of Cosentino’s main concerns and top priority.
