Cosentino's Dekton is made by particle sintering technology that accelerates metamorphism of glass, porcelain, and natural quartz. The inorganic raw materials are exposed to high heat and pressure for four hours to achieve compaction. It is UV and scratch resistant, and absorbs low levels of water. Dekton comes in 56- by 126-inch slabs and three thicknesses: 1.2-, 2- and 3-cm. Finishes include 12 black, grey, and white stone shades and three polished, matte, and slate options.
