Applications of DEKTON

Dekton is one of the newest construction materials available, but its advantages have already seen it employed across a wide and diverse range of purposes. Exactly replicating the appearance of glass, porcelain, and quartz while enhancing the properties of each, this is a material that boasts the strength, versatility, and longevity demanded across all design and construction jobs. Here are just a few of its applications.

Worktops

Kitchen countertops are incredibly well-suited to Dekton, and this is expected to be one of the most popular areas of initial use. The added workability of Dekton over traditional materials means that one piece can be installed without any cuts or joins, ultimately creating a completely uniform surface.

Beyond styling, Dekton is able to handle everything you could throw at a kitchen worktop. Highly resistant to stains, scratches, heat, and freezing, it can last a lifetime without ever even needing to be treated.

Facades

The façade of a building is more than a way to protect the exterior – the choice made also represents a visual statement about the building itself. Dekton can be used to emulate other premium materials, and it will continue to look impressive over time.

With the ability to resist the effects of anything from UV rays to graffiti, it can handle the rigors of outside use like few other materials. It also boasts outstanding flexural strength and can be used in thinner slabs than traditional options.

Flooring

Dekton’s ability to resist any damage caused by fluctuations in temperature make it an ideal material for either exterior or interior flooring.

Additionally, while glass, porcelain, and quartz surfaces are tough to use for stairs, Dekton fits the bill. The same structural versatility that makes it ideal for facades and countertops also proves vital here, and the high resistance to abrasion means that high-traffic areas won’t see it become worn down as time goes by.

Cladding

Dekton can be clad across both indoor and outdoor walls. Given that there are no limits as to the shape and design of the end product, the material can provide cladding in a number of formats, whether you need one large piece or several different ones to combine together.

Its excellent dimensional stability reduces the need for joints and the resilience to damage and staining that comes as a result of its minimal porosity means that you will have few problems when it comes to cleaning and maintenance.
