Innovation, the constant development and improvement in life, is an ethos Cosentino lives by. It informs the Spanish company’s diverse range of architectural surfaces, the flexibility in the way they can be used, and how the surfaces are designed and made.
That’s why, after years of research and development, Cosentino’s Silestone surfaces are now manufactured in a groundbreaking way using HybriQ+ technology. This innovative new production process uses 99% recycled water and 100% renewable electric energy. The result is a more beautiful and sustainable product for the environment and industry, with collections including Sunlit Days, Ethereal and more.
As well as reducing the generation of CO2, the new Silestone includes a hybrid blend of premium minerals and at least 20% recycled materials and reduced silica* levels, resulting in a product that contributes to a healthy working environment for those that handle the product.
With this new composition comes no compromise in quality — the new Silestone has the same durability, resistance and continues to come with a 25-year warranty. It is non-porous and highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, lemon juice, oil and many other everyday products. It’s also scratch and impact resistant, to avoid damage from daily use and wear. It can be used for hygienic benchtops, islands with distinctive edges, integrated kitchen sinks, splashbacks, high-traffic-area flooring, durable sidings and cladding, unique furniture pieces, bespoke shower trays and more.
This evolution in architectural surfaces means that architects and designers can feel good about specifying an environmentally responsible product in their projects. Homeowners can be proud of their ethical design choice. And Cosentino can be proud to lead the way when it comes to sustainability in the industry, with a product designed to stand the test of time while treading lightly on the environment.
