Dekton by Cosentino

Dekton Kraftizen & Onirika

Dekton® by Cosentino is a revolutionary and innovative ultra-compact surface, created by the Cosentino Group for the world of architecture and design. A blend of raw materials such as glass, latest generation porcelain materials and quartz.

Innovation applied to design

Dekton® is a sophisticated blend of more than 20 minerals extracted from nature. Its production process is the result of years of learning and inspiration in the manufacture 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 ultracompaction process exclusive to Dekton®. This reduced porosity and the absence of micro-defects causing stresses or weak points are the distinguishing feature of Dekton®.

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 metres (196 yards).

→ Temperatures reach approximately 1250ºC (2300ºF).

→ Total processing time depends on the thickness of the slab (about 4 hours)
