High-shine surfaces, although aesthetically pleasing, are deemed impractical. Externally coated and varnished, they lose their sheen and acquire unsightly stains over long-term usage. In light of this, Dekton® XGloss is materialised through a new integrated technology that eliminates such concerns. Pioneered by the research and development team at Cosentino, the exclusive process has resulted in surfaces that offer a rare combination of high-gloss aesthetic and technical appeal – the Dekton® XGloss line offers lustrous appearances with hardy and age-resistant qualities.
An advanced nanotechnological treatment and mechanical polishing process boost the entire body of material slabs with water-repellent and stain-resistant properties. The exclusive production, which took the team almost two years to refine, does not alter the material’s outer coat or cause it to lose favourable qualities.
Furthermore, a Particle Sintering Technology (PST) imbues the surfaces with other technical properties such as resistance to UV rays and thermal shock. There are five new colours in the Dekton® XGloss Solid Collection, which is suitable indoors and outdoors.
