Dekton is more resistant to extremes of temperature, scratching, staining, abrasion and other damage than any other existing worktop material. Because of its exceptional strength (it is five times stronger than natural granite!) it is manufactured in much larger slabs than other materials, with much greater potential for design and installation of islands, longer uniform work surfaces without any joints and longer overhangs without support. Its strength has also made it possible to manufacture slabs from an amazingly thin 8mm, to the more usual 20mm and 30mm slabs. Depending on design requirements, this can cut down on the weight and cost of surfaces and also provides an infinite number of design possibilities.
Its colour pigments are blended throughout the material during manufacture, ensuring colour consistency and colour fastness. This eliminates the need for edging and slabs can be cut for splashbacks, upstands and other additions. It is completely UV resistant and extremes of temperatures, and fire-resistant, making it an ideal choice for any indoor and outdoor project.
Antimicrobial elements are mixed into the material so that it actively fights bacteria for the best possible hygiene. Because there is no way moisture, toxins or germs can enter the worktop, and its colours will not fade, it will remain brand new for decades after you have installed a Dektron worktop.
