NEW TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCTIONS
Among the notable new features of the Silestone Loft Series and Silestone Sunlit Days Collection: the debut of the innovative and exclusive HybriQ+ technology — a new production process and major leap in the evolution of the Silestone brand that combines reused raw materials, along with 99 percent recycled water and 100 percent renewable energy. HybriQ+ technology also allows for the significant reduction of crystalline silica in the Silestone® surfaces. Instead, a hybrid formula made up of mineral and reused raw materials, such as recycled glass, is used. This new composition provides the material with a modern aesthetic and design features, while maintaining the beauty and quality of Silestone, as well as its 25-year warranty. Additionally, this new generation of Silestone is designed with sustainability and respect for the environment in mind — a tremendous milestone made possible by more than three years of intense work by Cosentino Group’s Innovation and Product and Environment teams.
