SILESTONE is an engineered stone product composed of 93% quartz. It is an extremely dense product than can be used for kitchen countertops, vanities and other surfacing applications.
Because the surface is polished quartz, SILESTONE is extremely stain resistant and does not require any sealers.
The finest selection of quartz particles are mixed with binders through a high-tech compression and heating process. The result is a dimensionally consistent material with an attractive appearance that is stronger and more durable than natural stone.
SILESTONE is highly scratch resistant. Under normal household use, knives, keys, toys or any item that would normally cause damage to regular counter tops will have no effect on Silestone.
With hardness and thermal ratings many times that of marble and plastic laminates, Silestone withstands typical wear and tear beautifully.
SILESTONE can withstand limited exposure to heat without the worry of warping, Silestone tolerates high temperatures for brief periods of time. The perfect material for anyone who has experienced the occasional mishap of placing a hot pan on a kitchen counter top.
