If you want a worktop surface that can easily withstand stains, scratches and heat, the man-made Dekton quartz is an ideal choice. While the conventional quartz is already the most durable and low-maintenance material, Cosentino has introduced the new Dekton Slim to take toughness to another level.
What is Dekton Slim?
The latest Dekton Slim by manufacturer Cosentino is a ground-breaking countertop material in just 4mm thickness. This is the slimmest surface from the award-winning, ultra-compact brand – Dekton. In London, Dekton Slim has been designed by combining high-end technical and mechanical features. As a result, a revolutionary surface has been created with a much thinner, manageable and lighter format for easy installation. Manufactured after consumers’ high demand, the advanced 4mm thickness Dekton Slim can be used for various projects.
Since kitchen worktops take daily abuse in the form of spills, stains, scratches or heat, an ultra-resistant and compact surface is required to bear the daily wear and tear. According to consumer reports, Dekton Slim has excelled in some of the toughest tests at its manufacturing units. This proves it to be the toughest countertop material for commercial and residential properties.
1. Dekton Slim for Modern Bathroom Design
Dekton Slim has retained all the advantages of standard Dekton UK. It has been manufactured using a similar ultra-compaction process. However, the new product is thinner than its predecessor and highly resistant to thermal shock and other impacts without any special maintenance need. Available in 3200x1400mm slabs, this new surface ensures fewer joints while installation in the modern, sleek bathrooms.
2. Dekton Slim for Minimalistic Kitchen Designs
Dekton Slim is ideal for designing minimalist kitchens, especially in busy family homes or other properties that require higher resistance against heat, scratches, fire and stains. So, this tough surface is indeed the most practical choice for modern, busy households.
Due to its lightweight and ultra-thin properties, Slim is easy to cut, install and transport. The fabricators can also make quick adjustments using regular ceramic tiles. Besides, Slim is available at a lower price range. Therefore, it’s easier to save your money during the installation process whilst having a reliable and high-end brand in your kitchen.
Benefits of Dekton Slim
Here is a list of some amazing benefits of installing Dekton Slim in your home:
1. Dekton is Fireproof
According to its manufactures, Dekton kitchen worktops are highly fireproof. So, you don’t have to worry about damaging it when you’re searing scallops or torching, even if you work directly on the countertop. You can even set your boiling hot water or hot skillets straight onto the worktop without any fear of damage to its surface due to thermal shock.
2. Dekton is Scratch-Resistant
Any sort of scratches from pans, knives or appliances can easily damage your kitchen worktops. But Dekton Slim’s exceptional density makes it difficult to scratch. You may even cut right on these worktops without worrying about the damage. You also don’t have to fear about rough-bottom pots or pans sliding on its surface.
3. Dekton is Stain-Resistant
Dekton worktop won’t stain, even with black beans, ketchup, red wine, soy sauce, vinegar, lemon, spray paint or makeup. Due to its non-porous and dense surface, Slim is virtually impervious to fluids. Even white Dekton Aura won’t show any signs of stains on its surface.
4. Dekton is Possible to Book Match
Have you ever purchased granite or marble? If so, you know that some colours are available only in batches that are made from the same mountain slab. So, it’s easier to book-match those batch patterns and grains.
This means if you want to install a slab on a large island or worktop, you may line-up the grain or veins continuously to hide any seams. Even Dekton Slim is available in a wide range of colors and looks that can simulate the exact book-matching effect of natural stones.
5. Dekton Slim is Available in Matte Sheen
Dekton Slim is available in a matte sheen that one can achieve by combining worktops with high-glossy finishes in backsplash or cabinetry. The matte finish is a beautiful, non-reflective surface that doesn’t create glare in lighting. The matte look is also great for creating natural yet luxurious texture that’s similar to a concrete surface.
6. Dekton Slim is UV-Resistant
Unlike conventional quartz worktops, Dekton Slim is highly UV-resistant. Therefore, it is best to be used outdoors without worrying about fading or damaging the surface. Its overall durability and toughness also make it ideal for outdoor kitchens. Even acids and chemicals are no match for Slim.
