Dekton from Consentino is a highly refined combination of raw materials that is also used in the production of premium quartz stone worktops. The material is produced via a unique manufacturing process that uses sintered particle technology (TSP). This accelerates the metamorphic processes that occur when natural stone is exposed to high temperatures and extreme pressure over thousands of years.
The result is a tough material that is extremely scratch, impact and abrasion resistant. To maintain the exceptional properties of your worktop for many years, you should observe the following:
- the worktops are impervious to chemicals such as alkalis or acids. Nevertheless, you should exercise caution when using aggressive acid or alkali-based cleaning agents. These substances should not be left in contact with the surface for long periods.
- The material has very high scratch resistance. To avoid damaging kitchen utensils, it is nevertheless advisable to use a board when cutting.
- Avoid impacts to the edges.
- The material has a silk matt surface. Do not polish the surface and do not use metal sponges or coarse abrasive particles.
Even more abrasion resistant than granite, it is ideal for areas subjected to heavy use. While other materials may wear out over time, these worktops will last for the lifetime of the kitchen if cared for properly.
For daily cleaning of your countertop, a cleaning sponge and water with neutral detergent are sufficient. The stain-resistant surface eliminates the need for tedious scrubbing.
After cleaning, we recommend wiping the surface with a clean, damp microfibre cloth.
Caution: Highly resistant to acids or alkalis. Extremely acidic or alkali-based cleaners should never be left on the surface for prolonged periods!
Removal of stubborn stains
Impervious to almost all common household cleaning agents, stains hardly stand a chance! However, stubborn dirt can be easily removed with a mild scouring agent. Grease, varnish and wax can be easily removed with solvents (e.g. acetone, universal solvent, turpentine).
