Silestone is an engineered stone surface, considered to be one of the leaders in the world when it comes to kitchen top materials. It is a compound, made of 93% natural quartz mixed with a resin binder, which is also a natural material, making this material exceptionally hard, resilient, eco friendly and flawless. Its strength, combined with its timeless beauty and elegance make it a superior choice for any new kitchen surface.
The main advantages are its guaranteed quality and the fact that it is stain, acid, scratch and impact resistant. Silestone also provides peace of mind in terms of cleanliness and hygiene. Apart from being nonporous, it is the first and only countertop to have anti-microbial protection which fights against the growth of mold and mildew as well as other odor-causing bacteria on its surface.
Therefore it is easy to keep the product clean. Quartz is extremely low maintenance and will not need to be reconditioned, polished or sealed. Another reason to opt for a Silestone countertop is the fact that it is a very green material. In fact, Silestone quartz countertops have little to no radon emission. Radon is an odourless gas, mostly associated with bad air quality inside the house, which can be harmful to health.
