Cosentino Dekton; significantly different than quartz
I am a fabricator.
Did our 1st Dekton job recently. Dekton is a new manufactured countertop material with significantly different properties than your run of the mill quartz countertop; much denser, much more scratch resistant, and 100% UV stable.
Cosentino is spending a lot of effort to insure anyone fabricating the material can do a good job. A fabricator has to fab a demonstration project (which means he's invested in the various special tooling engineered specifically for Dekton) and get approved.
Not particularly difficult to fabricate but definitely more shop time than a typical quartz or granite due to chippy edges that have to be dealt with. Raw material cost is similar to the most expensive level of Silestone and fab costs would be more.
I'll post pics once the grill we made is completed.
