Chemical structural fixing of pieces onto profiles.
Projects that adapt to change. New constructions and renovated buildings alike are often required to adapt to socio-economic changes, new uses or, simply, to preserve the formal limits of pre-existing structures or unexpected shapes of the plot.
DKC is a completely chemical system of fixing, which permits pieces to be attached directly onto the supporting sub-structure using structural bonding, avoiding any machining of the piece. Using a profile, two double-sided lengths of tape are placed in the centre while two strips of structural bonding are added to the edge of the profile.
During assembly, the double-sided tape holds the piece while the bonding sets. A multitude of formats can be used and designed, including pieces that are pre-assembled in the factory. This system allows for a range of thicknesses, with 8 mm pieces being popular for use in refurbishment and redesigns.

Dekton is ideal for ensuring the flatness and dimensional stability of a surface to tenths of a millimetre, thanks to ultra-compaction during the manufacturing process and negligible water absorption (less than 0.05%), achieving absolute control of the vertical nature of the surrounding.
To avoid movement and “flaps” between pieces that cause unwanted shadows or imperfections in the parameter, choosing a material such as Dekton, which is able to respond properly to the technical requirements of the system, is key.
