Resistance to fire, sun and freezing Dekton has the best classification in terms of fire resistance: A1. UV rays do not deteriorate or change its colour, it remains unchanged over time. It is not affected by sudden changes in temperature as it is resistant to thermal shock. Determination of thermal shock resistance according to UNE EN ISO 10545-9For ventilated facades, the material is delivered in mesh with A2 s1 d0 classification. High resistance to ultraviolet rays Acid and scratch-resistant Highly stain-resistant Flexural strength When comparing Dekton with other common façade materials, according to the EN 14411 rule, we find that: Dekton values higher than 45 N/mm2 Extruded Ceramic (A1b) min. > 18 N/mm2 Dry Pressed Ceramic (B1a)min.>32 N/mm2 Maximum fire and heat-resistance Wear-resistant Resistance to thermal shock EASY MAINTENANCE Thanks to its low porosity, the material isn’t affected by graffiti or chemical agents in high concentrations, which allows easy maintenance of the facade. Resistance to aggressive products: ACIDS no damage BASES no damage no damage no damage no damage Mechanical resistance Reduced water absorption Dimensional stability Construction systems DKT 1 Our product is tried and tested with the highest of quality standards.
