Invented in 1990, Silestone’s combination of practicality and desirable looks has made it one of the world’s most popular natural quartz surfaces.
Quartz is an extremely hard natural stone, making Silestone highly durable. Quartz is the fourth hardest natural stone with only sapphire, topaz and diamond being more durable.
This high durability gives Silestone a great shock resistance, higher than most other natural stones used in household fixtures. The quartz, combined with a polyester resin and Silestone’s vibro-compression system achieves this resistance making the material near on impossible to scratch or mark.
Made up of 94% natural quartz the high durability of Silestone coupled with its resistance to acid allows it to be manufactured with precision in a wide variety of high performance products.
