Excellence under pressure
Dekton is made from a secret compostion of selcted minerals, and for that reason it is a brand of its own. Thinking of its process as the hight pressure moulding and high temperature baiking as similar to that of ceramics would not be wrong. However the difference in composistion and finish means that Dekton offers something ceramics doesn't have in terms of style.
Dekton has strength enough as a worktop even in slim versions. Dekton has a hardness score higher than steel. This means that, more than being scratch resistant, it is extremely difficult to cut - except at a specialised factory. It's heat resistance is documented in branded laboratory tests - as well as its scratch resistance and its other features.
Dekton has a look, that is its own - and so are many of the branded styles it comes in. Because of it's hardnes, the available edge profiles are limited. Most of the adapting to your specific measurements are possible, but not ont the spot - they must be accurately measured by professionals and carried out prior to delivery

The colours and design selection is plentiful, and opens for many contrasting or nuance blenidn effects with the rest of the room styling
Dekton and other composite worktops in the Kvik selection represent the high end of the scale when it comes to carbon foodprint*. Although Dekton is made of natural minerals, it is requires energy to both produce and to transport it's heavy weight by truck.

What should I know before I decide on Dekto?
This is a list that include some of our best advice - and some the questions, we most frequently answer on Kvik Touch
Dekton is a special, branded material, that comes in branded designs. Looking at the price pr. m only, Granite is in the highest priced material we offer at Kvik.
But of course, expensive should be related to the full cost of the project and the design, you end up deciding for.
The costs related to cutting and fitting the lamainate to your kitchen design, as well as the finish are also in the high end. Make sure to get a real price estimation from your Kvik consultant before making budget decisions.
The hardness, the superior resistance to heat and scratches - and the unique designs at your choice
The warranty is the same as all Kvik - worktops: a 5 year warranty. The terms of that warranty is of course clearly explained the warranty documents of your purchase.
A general piece of advice is to never exceed what is normal use in a private kitchen. If you do, you may forfeit you warranty in case of claims case.
Helpful advice may be:
Never ever perform cutting or chopping directly on the worktop. Always use a cutting board. Keep nice ones like this at hand while working
Never put items too hot hold in the palm of your hand directly on the surface - always keep a nice potrack or a coaster like this close when working
Not at all. There is no maintenance as such and daily cleaning is simply done with a damp cloth.
