Cosentino carries three brands – Silestone, Dekton and Sensa.
Silestone® by Cosentino, world leading brand for quartz surfaces, is a material made of 90% natural quartz. Silestone® surfaces are highly stain, impact and scratch resistant as well as having a low liquid absorption rate. It is the perfect material for use in a great many applications in kitchens and bathrooms as well as for laboratories, hospitals, hotels, restaurants and other professional uses.
Dekton® by Cosentino is an ultra-compact surface developed exclusively by the Cosentino Group R&D department. This material is highly resistant to scratches and abrasion, it has very low porosity and therefore almost non-existent water absorption and maximum resistance to stains. It has excellent colour stability due to its resistance against UV rays, and it can be used in any climate as it resists heat and thermal shock, even that caused by freezing and thawing. 2016 Dekton® obtained the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), after analysing the environmental impact of its life cycle.
Sensa® by Cosentino is Cosentino’s brand of protected natural stone. Sensa incorporates an exclusive protection against stains. Sensa by Cosentino® granites and quartzites are subjected to a revolutionary treatment that makes them highly stain resistant. A protective treatment called Senguard NK, which comes with a 15-year warranty, is applied to each slab of Sensa, providing invisible protection that enables the stone to breathe. The treatment works by preventing penetration by any type of liquid into the granite, meaning that properties of the stone, such as its colour, quality and finish, remain unaltered for longer and that their result is better.
Cosentino Malaysia has a full working team based locally, led by Mark Alban, who reports to Ross Cameron, Area Director, Asia. “Together as a team, we are thrilled to offer only the very best design solutions to our Malaysian customers.
