What is Dekton:
Dekton is a sophisticated mixture of raw materials used to make glass, latest-generation porcelain tiles and quartz surfaces. Dekton emulates in a few hours what takes nature thousands of years, through an exclusive technological process call Particle Sintering Technology (PST).
PST is a process that sinters mineral particles so that they link up and change their internal structure. PST technology completely synthesizes innovative procedures from the most advanced technology industries. This evolution represents a technological and industrial leap capable of generating a new process, a revolutionary material and a leading product.
Dekton uses the exclusive PST technology, a technological process that uses an accelerated version of the metamorphic changes that natural stone undergoes from exposure to high pressure and high temperatures for thousands of years. The electron microscopy allows reduced porosity of the material, due to the sintering process and exclusive ultra-compacation of Dekton. It has virtually zero porosity and the non-existence of the micro flaws that cause tension and weaknesses set Dekton apart from other materials.
Because of its virtually zero porosity, Dekton is highly resistant to everyday domestic stains and chemical agents. Even the most stubborn stains such as wine, coffee, ink and rust can be easily cleaned. Splashes and drops of everyday cleaning products such as bleach or degreasing oven cleaners do not cause any harm to the material.
Dekton is a surface that is virtually impossible to scratch. Household utensils and other sharp objects do not scratch the material. However, we recommend the use of cutting boards to prevent blunting any household utensils.
Dekton Care & Maintenance
Dekton only requires little maintenance. We recommend that you clean on a regular basis by using a non-abrasive sponge, soap and warm water. Majority of pH balanced general-purpose cleaners can also be used.
To remove difficult spills:
The best method is to wipe the surface using a pot and pan soap and scrub and then rinse with warm water.
For stains that harden as they dry:
Some foods such as gum, nail polish, and paint become harder as they dry. To remove, gently scrape off of the surface using a blade or a putty/plastic knife. To clean, use warm water and soap. Gray marks left by the knife can be wiped away with soap and water or glass cooktop cleaner.
Wine, Coffee, Food and Fruit Juice Stains:
It is recommended that you use alkaline detergents or oxidants such as dish soap, Windex, Formula 409, diluted bleach and water.
