About Silestone® Quartz Surface
What is Silestone
Designing the perfect environment starts with a selection of the right materials, and that's where Silestone comes in. Silestone is an engineered quartz surface that looks, feels and weighs like natural granite and marble. Yet its strength, hardness and competitive price make it the superior choice over natural stone or plastic solid surfaces. Silestone is selected by thousands of customers, architects and designers for use as kitchen counter tops, bathroom, vanities, flooring and fireplace surrounds.
The beauty of Silestone is endless. Silestone has bridged the gap between nature and technology, bringing elegance to every home with surfaces that are virtually maintenance free. Silestone is composed of 93% quartz aggregates. The finest selection of quartz particles are mixed with binders through a high-tech compression and heating process. The result is a dimensionally consistent material with an attractive appearance that is stronger and more durable than natural stone.
Silestone is a non-porous material and does not require the use of sealants and impregnators to maintain its attractive finish. With only a small fraction of the liquid absorption rate of granite or acrylic, it is ideal for use in areas prone to spills and stains. In fact, any detergent will clean Silestone's polished surface. And with hardness and thermal ratings many times that of marble and plastic laminates, Silestone withstands typical wear and tear beautifully.
Whatever your design preferences, Silestone is the perfect choice. Available is a wide range of colors, textures, and finishes, Silestone perfectly complements other materials like tile, metal, wood and glass. This design flexibility allows to build a home that truly reflects your sense of style.
