silestone® quartz

hygiene & looks ... a winning team


Silestone by CosentinoSilestone® bridges the gap between nature and technology. It's made from 94% quartz with the remaining 6% resins & pigments. Using a patented vibro-compression, the resins bind the quartz in polymetric chains. The result is a highly durable stone product.


Silestone® has a sophisticated appearance. The touch and weight of a natural stone, but with a superior quality. Quartz is one of the most resistant and beautiful elements of nature, allowing for applications from stunning kitchen worktops to the most innovative business projects.


With a large selection of 24 stunning colours in our range, a variety of looks can be achieved to compliment our selection of doors, ensuring your Silestone® worktops add that depth of beauty to your finished kitchen. Visit the Silestone® website for further information (opens in new window).


Silestone quartz and Microban


 relax - you're in safe hands ...

Built-in Microban® antibacterial protection helps products to fight the growth of micro-organisms such as mould and harmful bacteria such as E.Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Staphlococcus and the MRSA superbug.


Here are a few reasons to choose your quartz worksurface with Microban®:


  • Microban® is evenly distributed throughout the body of the Silestone®.
  • It protects the entire surface even in hard to reach corners.
  • The Microban® active ingredient will not wash or wear out.
  • Microban® technology is exclusively incorporated into Silestone® Quartz and provides continuous antibacterial protection that cannot be removed or eliminated during the lifetime of the product.
  • Silestone® is the only worldwide patented natural quartz surfacing with Microban® protection.

advantages of silestone®

  • Timeless natural beauty
  • Stain resistance - a non-porous surface and very resistant to stains such as coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, make-up and lot of products of daily use.
  • Scratch resistance - There are only three natural stones (diamond, sapphire and topaz) harder than quartz. This makes Silestone® highly resistant to scratches. Extremely hard - 7 on the 'Moh's Hardness scale' (diamond is 10). However it is recommended not to abuse its characteristics.
  • Versatility - Silestone® can be used for any indoor surface; kitchen and bathroom worktops & splashbacks, stairs, panels, baths and surrounds, floors, walls, bars, tables and desks.
  • Heat resistance - Unlike solid or laminated surfaces, Silestone® is resistant to heat and burns. Again, we recommend not to abuse its characteristics for prolonged periods of time.
  • Silestone® keeps its lustrous gloss and ultra-smooth surface without polishing. As it is nonporous, it does not require sealants or waxes.
  • Low maintenance - Thanks to its excellent features, very little maintenance is required. We recommend using the Maintenance Care Kit to keep your worktops in tip-top shape. Everyday cleaners such as Cif are also recommended.
  • Silestone® is available in a choice of 24 beautiful colours to compliment your kitchen.
