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
