We’ve all heard of the virtues of manmade quartz worktops. The durability, versatility and beauty are incomparable. But one big flaw stands out about this amazing product. It is not heatproof.

In fact, that is about the only warning you get from distributors and installers alike. Avoid putting any hot surface on your quartz surfaces. Kind of a let down right?

What if you were informed that there is a product out there that has all the good qualities of any quartz surface and none of the bad?

Sound Too Good to Be True?

Prepare to be amazed yet again because Dekton is here.  This revolutionary material gives you a surface that rivals any quartz worktop, and it is heatproof! Actual use of this material is not only limited to kitchen counters. It can be used for outdoor applications like building facades, outdoor kitchens and even flooring surfaces.

Let us take a look at the amazing things Dekton from Cosentino has to offer.


It is heatproof.  This has got to be the single most important reason for you to grab a Dekton quartz surface for your kitchen. Go ahead and torch it.

Damage or cracking caused by thermal shock or sudden and extreme change in temperature is now a thing of the past. Not planning to torch your new Dekton surface? Well then, place something hot on it like a hot pot or pan.

No Need to Worry

This game-changing feature from Dekton will protect that beautiful surface.

Super Dense

Dekton is super dense. This revolutionary material is so dense that stains are unheard of. Spilling liquid on it that is known to stain lesser stone surfaces will not have an effect. Dekton’s density renders it virtually non-porous and therefore impervious to staining.

Just wipe away the spill, and voila, good as new. This unique characteristic of Dekton also makes it scratch proof. We all know how accidents happen in the kitchen and scratches are bound to happen.  But with Dekton surfaces, accidental scratches are an impossible occurrence. This is one tough surface.

An Expansive Colour Palette

Dexton’s colour palette is continually expanding. The makers of revolutionary surface are continually improving this already amazing product by making sure there is a colour that matches our taste. This stone surface can already be had in 10 different colours and 5 more have been recently added. More colours should be on the horizon.

Dekton can be purchased as a book-matched slab. Some Dekton slabs are book-matched during manufacture so that you can create seamless surfaces.


And if heatproof, scratch proof and stain proof are not enough, Dekton is also UV resistant and chemical resistant, making this top-of-the-line product the ultimate surface you will ever meet. So, go ahead, take advantage of the amazing quartz worktops surface and get a worthwhile return on your investment.
