Silestone is natural quartz surfaces treated and created to decorate today’s kitchens and bathrooms in a range of attractive quartz colours, extraordinary quartz textures, and top-quality performance. It is the only one with an anti-bacterial protection for worktops that guarantees maximum hygiene on its surfaces.
Silestone is a compound made up of 94% natural quartz, which make it extraordinarily hard and resilient. This is the one and only worktop made of quartz with anti-bacterial protection, giving it hygienic properties that are not to be found anywhere else on the market. It is an excellent surface for kitchen worktops, bathrooms, floors and wall cladding using the minimum number of joints.
In addition, it comes in a variety of different shades of quartz colour, offering a number of decorative possibilities from a mere kitchen top to a project for a complete set of furniture. Silestone is an investment for the future. Silestone is forever.
Quartz is crystallised silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is usually white or transparent, although it can be found in other colours if it comes into contact with impurities during its formation.
It is found either in a pure state or present in other compounds. However, because of its extreme hardness and resistance to acids, it is used to make a large variety of products that require precision and top-quality performance. This type of quartz forms the main component in Silestone boards.
There are many advantages to using Silestone: since it is a surface that is manufactured from natural quartz, it is a surface highly resistant to stains and scratches, and has a low level of fluid absorption. Silestone comes in over 60 quartz colours for worktops, three textures and several different formats, which make it extremely versatile, and can even be used in large pieces without requiring any joins. Silestone is perfect for use in a great many applications in the kitchen and bathroom.
Silestone has an elegance and beauty that can only be compared with the most stunning natural stones such as quartz or diamonds. The natural quartz of Silestone has a density all its own: it has a gloss, a sparkling gleam and a unique touch.
Silestone is a non-porous quartz surface that is highly resistant to staining from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, make-up and many other everyday products.
Quartz has a hardness of 7 in the Mohs hardness scale (diamond is number 10). Therefore, whereas with the majority of other worktops, such as those made of granite or melamine, which can get scratched, with Silestone no mark is left. Silestone is highly resistant but should not be treated with reckless force, care needs to be taken with knife blades.
Silestone is now available in over 60 colours, ensuring that there is a Silestone colour to suit most styles and textures.
Silestone can be used in any interior surface, including kitchen and bathroom worktops, stairs, panels, bath tubs and bath surrounds, floors, walls, bar counters, tables and desks, etc
The high level of resistance of Silestone quartz worktops to knocks, far surpasses that of other products with similar applications (granite, solid surfaces, etc. This resistance provides peace of mind in the kitchen when handling very hard objects (saucepans, trays, etc).
Such resistance is achieved thanks to its composition: quartz (hardness) and polyester resin (elasticity), and the vibro-compression system used in its production process. Silestone is highly resistant but should not be treated with reckless force, care needs to be taken with very heavy objects and worktop edges.
