Dekton by Cosentino, the ultra-compact surface with advanced technical properties for both interior and exterior application, introduces its XGLOSS Seriesâ€”four new luxurious high-gloss colors touting the highest reflectivity with durability only Dekton can offer. XGLOSS meets the interior design industryâ€™s growing demand for all things lacquered and reflective. Cosentino continued its innovation with the breakthrough of a nanotechnology treatment that creates an extraordinarily luxurious, shiny finish on these new Dekton colors. The newly developed Nanocoating Process creates a crystalline shine that not only enhances the XGLOSS Series colors but maintains the materialâ€™s resistance to scratches, stains, UV rays and temperature shock.
Pricing of Dekton is per-square-foot and depends on color & thickness.
*Halo: Its soft white hue married with a high-gloss finish makes Halo an instant classicâ€”fitting traditional aesthetics and sleek, modern spaces alike. *Blaze: Evocative of a dark-polished mirror in gunmetal gray, the highly reflective nature of the material brings instant luxe and brilliance to its applications. *Splendor: To meet designer and consumer demand for a subtle grey, Splendor offers a modern take on a classic hue with its lacquered look. *Lumina: Highly saturated, Lumina is a warm taupe that brings an earthy hue juxtaposed with unmatched radiance and reflectivity to a spaceâ€™s color palette.
Dekton is made using a proprietary process called Particle Sintering Technology (PST), an accelerated four-hour version of the change that rocks and stone undergo in nature when subjected to heat and pressure over thousands of years. The result: an ultra-compact surface with superior technical characteristics, including resistance to UV, scratches, stains, thermal shock, and very low water absorption. Its resistance to thermal shock against heat, frost and thawing allows Dekton to be used in any climate, offering potential for seamless design from indoor to outdoor spaces. Such unique characteristics and durability make Dekton ideal for an array of surface applications, including countertops, vanities, shower walls, flooring, decking, building facades, and many other architectural surfaces.

Silestone Coffee Brown, Absolute Green and the six colors in the Stellar Series contain 35 percent post consumer recycled glass content, while Silestone "Dali" is composed of more than 70 percent post-consumer recycled glass.
