Silestone is composed of 94% natural quartz, and is the first and only quartz countertop with Bacteriostatic Protection, giving it unique features.
It is a non-porous surface and highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup and many other everyday products. Quartz is one of the hardest minerals in the world. This makes the product very durable, with a high level of resistance to external aggressions. 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. It is the only brand that contains a unique bacteriostatic formula developed by Cosentino that is based on the use of latest generation silver ions to prevent the propagation of bacterias.
