Quartz is crystallised silica dioxide (sio2) and is normally white or transparent.
Silestone® contains Microban® which offers an extra level of hygiene to provide an efficient solution in the fight against harmful bacteria. Microban® technology works continuously within the Silestone®, this not only makes cleaning the worktop easier, but also keeps it protected between cleans whilst losing none of the beautifully natural characteristics of Silestone®.
Silestone® slab sizes are 3.04M x 1.38M and 3.27M x 1.56M (not all colours are available in this size) and are available in 3 thicknesses 12mm, 20mm and 30mm.
The Silestone® sink is made from the same material as the worktops, and has all the same properties (low porosity, resistance, durability, protection and hygiene).
Integrity by Silestone® is currently available in a single bowl format, it is called the ONE model and measures 41x51x15.5 cm. This is the optimum size that will achieve all the uniformity you need.
