News, Top Products
April 12, 2019
Soon to be available in Canada is our new Dekton Slim format, an ultra-thin thickness of 4mm in large format that offers unlimited design options.
Its combined lightness paired with reduced thickness makes it the most durable and high-performance surface covering available on the market, a truly innovative product we are proud of!
Dekton Slim is ideal for wall cladding in kitchens and bathrooms, backsplashes, but also for furniture cladding, including tables, cabinetry doors, drawers, etc. Designers now have the ability to convert furniture with never before seen features, creating extremely durable tables, stain and scratch resistant doors, and overall uniform design thanks to its cut-to-size option. It requires little to no maintenance and is ultra-resistant to moisture and stains, making it a perfect option for bathrooms (Dekton Slim is not suitable for countertops).
Dekton Slim is available in a large format of up to 126 in x 56 in, allowing for coverage of large areas, avoiding a high number of joints and therefore, dirt and mould. The ultra-thin surface also allows for coverage with less quantity of surface, saving money on installation.
“Designers are consistently looking for surfaces that are not only beautiful, but functional. With Dekton Slim, we’re delivering high-quality and extremely durable surface coverings, without sacrificing aesthetics.” says Massimo Ballucchi, Executive Director of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “We’re confident that Canadian designers will embrace this product and bring creativity to surface design in their future projects.”
Dekton Slim is currently offered in eight colours (Opera, Zenith, Kelya, Sirocco, Kovik, Nayla, Sirius, and Sasea) for purchase in Canada, on special order.
Dekton by Cosentino
The Dekton by Cosentino ultra-compact surface is a new and innovative category of surfaces created with the objective of becoming a global leader in the world of architecture and design both for indoor and outdoor spaces. Dekton is a sophisticated mixture of the raw materials that is used to manufacture glass, porcelain materials and quartz surfaces. The Dekton surface can recreate any type of material with a high level of quality. It is manufactured in large format (up to 126 in x 56 in) and thin thicknesses (0.4 cm, 0.8 cm, 1.2 cm, and 2 cm). It has superior technical characteristics: resistance to UV rays, scratches, stains, thermal shock and very low water absorption.
All of these characteristics unique to Dekton are present thanks to the technology used in its production, which has been developed exclusively by the Cosentino Group’s R&D department. Dekton is manufactured with Technology of Sinterized Particles (TSP), an innovative ultra-compaction process. This contributes greatly to the fact that Dekton is a completely revolutionary product; it is durable, very easy to maintain, and has potential for both indoor and outdoor uses including flooring, façades, wall cladding and countertops.
As part of our commitment to sustainability and a circular economic model, various Dekton colours are made with recycled materials from the product’s own manufacturing process. In 2016, Cosentino obtained an Environmental Product Declaration for Dekton.
