Silestone, Corian, and Other Worktops

The Planet of Worktops is a location confusion exists and it is our aim, not merely to make solid surfaces like Silestone, Corian and more recently introduced Quartz worktops, cheaper but to describe the differences to kitchen buyers that frequently do not have the foggiest which option is suitable for them.

Let us start with Silestone, manufactured and distributed by the Spanish firm Cosentino. The surface might be the most famous quartz worktop and a continuing and effective marketing strategy of the vendors has worked well to make its place as the top-rated surface in its own class.

It's, like its contemporaries, Caesar stone, and Compaq, a quartz surface or engineered stone composed of over 90% quartz crystals together with polyester resin, color pigments and for its Stellar range finishes, mirror fragments.

These materials are compacted at high pressure and at a constant temperature to create the raw slabs in readiness for supply to fabricators. Most recognizable for its brand name recognition, Silestone is frequently thought of as a special bespoke surface type yet it's manufactured using the identical process utilized to manufacture additional quartz surfaces and is distinguished from them by the addition of Microban, the antibacterial chemical.
