New Silestone® colours with pioneering HybriQ+ technology
A new collection of Silestone® colours is currently in development and will be launched soon, representing a return to the origins of the brand and the company. The central themes of this new collection will be the Mediterranean, contact with nature and, above all, colour.
This series brings with it a fresh new look for Silestone®, thanks in the main to the exclusive and pioneering HybriQ+ technology used in its production and first launched in October 2020. HybriQ+ involves a sustainable production process and a composition that uses a hybrid formula from mineral and reused raw materials, which also reduces the use of crystalline silica. Silestone® is moving towards a much more sustainable present and future, thus demonstrating its firm commitment to the circular economy and sustainable management.
Silestone® Loft, the first collection featuring HybriQ+
In the coming months, new colours featuring rich, deep textures that pay homage to craftsmanship will be launched for the ultra-compact Dekton® surface. Cosentino reinterprets the versatility, beauty and honesty of the work of master craftsmen through the technological and innovative approach of Dekton®, providing strength, durability and large format pieces.
This new series joins the carbon neutrality achieved for the entire life cycle of Dekton® (from cradle to grave), covering Scopes 1, 2 and 3, from the extraction of the raw material, to the use of the product and the end of its life.
