Dekton is a large format, ultra-compact solid surface by Cosentino. Dekton employs exclusive Sinterized Particle Technology, a high tech process which represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years.
Dekton is a versatile & innovative hard surface with a range of stunning colours to complement any interior or exterior design.
Sheet sizes: 3200 x 1440mm | Thicknesses: 4mm, 8mm, 12mm, 20mm
Sinterized particle technology synthesizes truly innovative procedures from the most advanced technology industries. This evolution represents a technological and industrial leap capable of generating a new process, a revolutionary material and a leading product.
DEKTON IS AN ULTRACOMPACT SURFACE THAT CONSISTS OF A SOPHISTICATED BLEND OF THE RAW MATERIALS USED TO PRODUCE THE VERY LATEST IN GLASS AND PORCELAIN AS WELL AS THE HIGHEST QUALITY QUARTZ WORK SURFACES
Electronic microscopy allows us to fully appreciate the material’s zero porosity, a consequence of the sinterization and ultra-compaction process exclusive to DEKTON. This zero porosity and lack of the micro-defects that cause tension or weak spots mark the difference as far as DEKTON is concerned.
Properties that make Dekton the ideal worktop surface, floor and wall covering for inside and out:
- 3200mm. x 1440mm. large format
- Versatility of formats
- Thicknesses of 4mm, 8 mm.,12 mm. and 20 mm. (depending on the requirements of the project)
- High flexural strength.
- Excellent dimensional stability, reduced joints.
- Colour stability.
- Possibility of endless design: format, details, joints, colours…
- Resistance to freezing and thawing.
- Reduced porosity and good maintenance and cleaning.
SIMPLE PANELLING SYSTEM
The cladding of indoor and outdoor walls can be achieved by a single cladding system, by applying adhesive cement plaster directly on the outside of the building or the interior support wall, where the Dekton pieces are stuck.
MIXED PANELLING SYSTEM
The cladding of indoor and outdoor walls by mixed panelling, consists of the combination of cement adhesives, with the use of mechanical reinforcing elements embedded in the separation joints between Dekton pieces and mechanically fixed to the enclosure.
DRY PANELLING SYSTEM
The cladding of indoor and outdoor walls by dry veneer, consists of using a metal substructure affixed to the enclosure, to which the Dekton pieces are stuck.
Dekton floor coverings are a good alternative for areas with high requirements as far as performance and design are concerned, both indoors and outdoors. The revolutionary Dekton properties allow the designer total freedom to design the format to work, ignoring limitations currently found with other materials.
The solution is suitable for installation in office buildings, apartments, and high traffic areas where durability and abrasion resistance are two important factors. The application is similar to the placement of pieces in traditional formats but with the advantages of a large format.
Dekton provides continuity between floors of different levels. 3D volume decoration, coupled with excellent mechanical properties and large format, means the ability to design unlimited, uninterrupted steps, achieving uniform stairs and totally seamless spaces, both indoors and outdoors.
Ventilated, Bonded & Curtain Wall Façades
Modern construction has come to understand that a façade, as part of an overall building envelope, is not only a visual statement, but also an important influencer in the protection of a wall’s structural components, the energy efficiency of the building and the health of its occupants. A carefully designed building envelope can make a new building work more effectively for its owners, its occupants and the environment, as well as transform the appearance and performance of an existing structure.
The ventilated façade is a high performance solution for building enclosures which takes advantage of mechanical anchoring elements. Through connections between the cladding material and the mechanical assembly, design loads are effectively transferred back to the structural wall, providing a safe and secure façade.
For facades fixed with glue it is very important to select the appropriate adhesives. Mechanical tie-backs may also be used where needed.
Spandrel Dekton panels are used in place of glazing units in curtain wall systems where it is necessary to hide the edges of floor slabs, celling details, insulation , and other building elements.
