Silestone is made from crushed quartz crystals which are bonded together with a special resin producing a uniform worktop with a warmer feel to the hand. Man made quartz bridges the gap between nature and technology. The process begins with combining 94% natural quartz with resins and pigments. Then through a process of vibro-compressions the resins bind the quartz in polymeric chains. The result is a highly durable stone product.
Silestone kitchen worktops are made by the Cosentino family who for 3 generations have specialised in working with Quartzite stone quarried in the Almeria region of Spain.
Silestone worktops are produced in 30mm, 20mm and 12mm thickness slabs measuring 3m x 1.38m. It can be used in a variety of applications including kitchen worktops, bathroom worktops, shower surrounds and floor and wall tiling.
Silestone kitchen worktops have built in Microban antibacterial protection which helps to fight the growth of microorganisms such as mould and harmful bacteria. It is the only natural quartz worktops with Microban. This technology is permanently incorporated for a lifetime of protection. It is available in a range of edge profiles and is versatile enough to allow for undermounted sinks, recessed sink drainers or splashbacks and can be machined to provide any shape that our designers can imagine in your kitchen.
