The Cosentino Group introduces XGloss, an innovative new Dekton series of ultra-polished, high-tech, ultra-compact surfaces with a dazzling crystalline shine.
This new line in the Dekton range is produced by means of an advanced nanotechnological treatment, exclusively developed my Cosentino’s R&D department, and a mechanical polishing process that results in a highly reflective shine. In addition to a high gloss finish, this technology gives Dekton XGloss water-repellent properties which make it extraordinarily stain-resistant without altering the material´s other properties or adding any outer coating to the slabs. This luminous shine combined with the hardness and high-resistance characteristics of Dekton makes XGloss unique in the market. Currently, no other comparable surface achieves this combination of aesthetics and technical performance.
This new launch demonstrates Cosentino’s constant capacity for innovation and establishes the company as a driving force in the architectural and design surfaces sector.
Product and Innovation Director, Valentín Tijeras explains, “This commitment stems from an awareness of a growing demand for lustrous, dramatic colors in the world of design and the realization that the high-shine materials available in the market until now do not perform well. We therefore wanted to continue in our tradition as pioneers in uniting spectacular beauty with high durability and stain resistance in XGloss.”
He continues, “What makes it different is that we achieve this in an integrated way throughout the whole body and surface of the slabs, firstly thanks to the nanoparticle treatment and then to the mechanical polishing method. This is neither a coating nor a varnish applied a posteriori, but rather a technological and productive system exclusive to Cosentino.”
XGloss remains equally versatile and appropriate for any type of use. Its very nature along with the Particle Sintering Technology (PST) gives the surface superior technical properties such as resistance to UV rays, thermal shock and resistance to scratching, to name a few. Dekton’s durability makes it suitable for an array of indoor and outdoor applications, including countertops, backsplashes, façades, wall cladding, flooring, stairs and more. It is available in large format, which allows for seamless creative possibilities for architects and designers.
The new XGloss series, which will be launched commercially this coming spring, will introduce 5 new colours in “Dekton XGloss Solid” collection, and will be available in sizes up to 144cm x 320cm, and in thicknesses from 20mm to 12mm.
This new XGloss series will be available this month and introduces five new colors available in sizes up to 56″ x 126″, with thicknesses ranging from 0.8cm to 2cm.

Its soft white hue married with a high-gloss finish makes Halo an instant classic—fitting traditional aesthetics and sleek, modern spaces alike.
To meet designer and consumer demand for a subtle grey, Splendor offers a modern take on a classic hue with its lacquered look.
Evocative of a dark-polished mirror in gunmetal gray, the highly reflective nature of the material brings instant luxe and brilliance to its applications.
