Silestone® is a non-porous surface and very resistant to stains of coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, make-up and lot of products of daily use.
Silestone® can be used for any in-door surface, even kitchen and bathroom worktops, stairs, panels, baths and around baths, floors, walls, bars, tables and desks...
There are only three natural stones (diamond, sapphire and topaz) harder than quartz. This makes that Silestone is high resistant to scratches.
Taking into consideration the Mohs hardness scale, the position of the quartz is 7 (diamond is 10). Therefore, using the same knife in different surfaces, Silestone will not be scratched easily.
Silestone® is high resistant to scratches, however it is recommended not to abuse its characteristics.
Silestone® has an elegance and beauty only comparable with the prettiest natural stones such as quartz or diamond.
Natural quartz of Silestone gives a distinguished density, shine and brilliant sparkles. Something that only some natural stones have.
Silestone® is available in 50 colours.
It is very difficult not to find the appropriate color for any style or texture. But if you are not satisfied with that, Cosentino increases the Silestone® color range every year.
Silestone® has great shock resistance, in most cases considerably higher than of other products used for similar applications (granite, solid surfaces, etc) which guarantees safety in the kitchen when handling very hard objects (pans, trays, etc).
This resistance is achieved thanks to its quartz (which gives it its hardness ) and poliéster resin (elasticity) and the vibrocompression system used during the production process.
