Crystal shine surfaces comprised of high-tech ingredients that are water repellent & stain resistant.

The new Dekton XGloss by Cosentino is a line of polished high-tech, ultra-compact surfaces characterised by their dazzling crystal shine. The line also possesses water-repellent properties which make it extraordinarily stain-resistant.

This new line in the Dekton range, produced by means of an advanced nanotechnological treatment and a mechanical polishing process, offers an extraordinary, dazzling, luminous and crystal-like shine which, combined with the hardness and very high resistance characteristic of Cosentino’s ultra-compact surfaces, gives this range exceptional performance qualities, which is unique in the market.

In order to achieve this spectacular result, the Cosentino Group’s R&D department spent almost two years developing a pioneering and exclusive treatment based on a nanotechnology called the “Nanocoating Process”. In addition to a high gloss finish, this technology gives Dekton XGloss water-repellent properties which make it extraordinarily stain-resistant without altering the material’s other properties or adding any outer coating to the slabs.  

With this new launch, Cosentino has demonstrated its constant capacity for innovation. Here, nanotechnology has been used to produce and highlight an exceptional luminosity in its line of ultra-compact surfaces. All of this is combined with superior performance and excellent resistance to any staining agent.

Dekton XGloss remains equally versatile and appropriate for any type of use, due to its very nature and the Particle Sintering Technology (PST) with which it is produced, enabling it to give surfaces superior technical properties such as resistance to UV rays and thermal shock, amongst others.

The aforementioned characteristics make Dekton XGloss an ideal choice for indoor and outdoor, vertical and horizontal use, whether for floors, stairs, and façades or wall surfaces. All of these characteristics, together with the large size of the Dekton slabs, offer innumerable creative possibilities for architects and designers.  

The new XGloss series will introduce five new colours in the “Solid” collection, and will be available in sizes up to 144cm x 320cm, and in thicknesses from 20mm to 12mm.
