About Silestone Quartz Solid Surfaces
Silestone® is the world’s leading producer of quartz solid surfaces designed for high-quality kitchens and bathrooms, including countertops and sinks with advanced bacteriostatic technology.
Nowadays, the term “hygiene” is closely related to the concepts of “health” and “cleaning”, since cleanliness is considered to be a key element in disease prevention and a person’s quality of life.
Kitchen cleanliness has traditionally been thought of as a set of actions related to care with food, good work practices, and the cleanliness of people, surfaces and utensils.
If kitchen surfaces are not properly cared for they can become a source of contamination for the food and utensils that come into contact with them. Moisture and warm temperatures are key factors for reproducing bacteria and can turn any surface, such as countertops and sinks, into a source of contamination.
To avoid contamination, it is important that surfaces be made from materials that are resistant, smooth and impermeable, and kept clean and dry.
Because of the compression system used in its production process, Silestone Quartz Solid Surfaces have a low level of fluid absorption. This makes it extremely hygienic for use in both residential and industrial cooking facilities.
Silestone Quartz Solid Surfaces are a compound made up of 94% natural quartz, which make it extraordinarily hard and resilient. Silestone quartz solid surfaces are the only worktops 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 color, offering a number of decorative possibilities from a mere kitchen top to a project for a complete set of furniture.
Silestone’s high impact resistance exceeds other similar products such as granite and solid surfaces. This feature guarantees safety in your kitchen when handling hard objects (pots, pans, etc.).
This resistance is achieved thanks to its quartz hardness, its polyester resin elasticity and its vibrocompression system used during its production.
Quartz is one of the hardest minerals in the world. This makes our products very durable, with a high level of resistance to external aggressions such as scratches and acidity from food sources.
