HybriQ+ Technology and Silestone® Loft: More natural, more sustainable, more design possibilities

November 25, 2020
Cosentino is committed to sustainability and has boosted its green credentials even further with the development of the exclusive HybriQ+ technology, showcased in the latest Silestone® Loft Collection. HybriQ+ technology is a ground-breaking leap in the evolution of Silestone® that introduces a new production process, new product composition and new design possibilities.
HybriQ+ is the result of more than three years of intense research and development. The manufacturing process reflects Cosentino’s philosophy of a circular economy of production, exchanging the typical cycle of make, use, dispose in favour of recycle and reuse. To achieve this, the production process uses 100 per cent renewable energy and 98 per cent recycled water.
The formula of HybriQ+ is made with a compound of minerals and reused raw materials, such as recycled glass, and a significant reduction in the presence of crystalline silica. This material composition maintains the performance features Silestone® is renowned for – its durability, resistance and low porosity – while allowing for greater design possibilities with new colours and effects, such as transparency.
Silestone® Loft is the first collection to feature HybriQ+ technology. The brand-new collection is inspired by industrial design and showcases some of the new colours and effects. Silestone® Loft is currently available in five designs, each named for an iconic neighbourhood with a distinctive history and industrial style: Camden, Poblenou, Seaport, Nolita and Corktown. These designs range from light grey to dark grey, with interesting variations in colour, pattern and subtle veining.
All Silestone® Loft surfaces maintain the standard 25-year warranty, and HybriQ+ technology also provides greater safety in the workplace, both in its manufacturing and handling.
