Dekton is a sophisticated blend of the raw material used to produce the very latest in Glass and porcelain, as well as the highest quality quartz work surfaces. Dekton employs exclusive sinterzied particle technology, a high tech process which represents an accelerated metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures over thousands of years. It has high UV resistance, highly scratch resistant (you can scratch the surface with the tip of your key and it wipes off). It is completely stain proof, has a high resistance to fire and heat, resistant to abrasions and completely resistant to ice and thawing. In short it is the ultimate work surface.
