Silestone Slab Size

A natural stone surface made of quartz, the 4th hardest mineral in nature, Silestone slabs are cutting-edge. Select quartz is ground up, engineered with additional colors and materials, then molded with immense pressure to create various slab sizes that have a consistent look, feel, and quality.

Silestone Slab Pricing

What makes one Silestone Slab color more expensive than another? The production cost and the manufacturer’s ability to obtain the desired color from raw materials. A good indicator is granulometry. The more discreet the grain (more uniform and smooth), the more resin content it contains and, therefore, the more expensive it is to produce.

The Silestone Kitchen Countertops Warranty

Stain Resistance

Silestone Slabs are highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, olive oil, make-up and many other everyday products when properly maintained. The Silestone coefficient of porosity is practically null and much lower than that of granite or marble. It is also more stain resistant than acrylics and laminates. However, be careful not to leave on liquids, such as, tea, coffee or red wine on the surface for more than 24 hours. Reason being, if liquids like these are exposed to the surface for such a long time this may penetrate the material, and may require a billable service call request. Remember that Silestone is stain resistant, not stain proof.

Silestone is not affected by common kitchen acids like lemon juice, tomato juice or vinegar (food acid). Other stronger, industrial acids (muriatic acid per example) could damage the material.

Silestone does not need any water repellent or gloss enhancer. Avoid these products as they can lead to important care and maintenance problems that void your warranty.

Heat Resistance

Silestone holds up better than a majority of other countertop or interior surface products, such as, laminate, wood and solid surface. It is recommended that you use a trivet because Silestone Slabs are not warranted against thermal shock.

Impact Resistance

Silestone Slabs are resistanctto impact is very high. It far exceeds that of other products with similar applications, such as, natural stone or solid surfaces. That being said, care not to hit the exposed ends, corners, cutouts and edge profile especially in the dishwasher and sink area.

Scratch Resistance

Silestone is highly scratch resistant because quartz is one of the hardest minerals in existence. The Mohs scale classifies it as the hardest 7 earth mineral behind topaz, corundum and diamond. It will not “micro-scratch” like acrylic products and is broadly more resistant than any laminated or stratified product. Even so, you should still use a cutting board and avoiding jagged knives, ceramic knives, choppers, unfinished dishware, and clay pots directly on the worktop. Scouring pads or abrasive sponges should be avoided as they can deteriorate the polished surface.

Microbial / Bacteriostatic Protection

Due to its low porosity, Silestone Slabs are considered an antibacterial surface, which limits the proliferation of bacteria. Please note that Silestone is not an antimicrobial surface. By medical definition, only a substance that kills microorganisms like bacteria or mold, or stops them from growing and causing disease can be labeled as antimicrobial.
