Made from a combination of glass, porcelain, and quartz, Dekton is created and manufactured by the company, Cosentino. In an attempt to create the ultimate countertop material, Cosentino developed a proprietary process called “Sinterized Particle Technology,” to alter the state of natural stone.
Imagine the condition of stone after being exposed to extremely high heat and pressure for thousands of years. The resulting creation would be Dekton, a product designed to be ultra-compact and the most durable material available today.
Variation in the natural stone color, pattern, size, shape and shade are inherent and unique characteristics to be expected. This does not affect the product performance. Your countertop will not be replaced due to these variations.
Natural stone products may contain some or all of the following characteristics:
- Areas that have been filled with color-matched epoxy that may compromise the integrity and strength of the materials.
- Variations in veining, color and movement.
- Small visible “fissure” lines on the surface which rarely affect the structural integrity.
- Natural mineral deposits, or “beauty marks,” that can be seen as intensified spots or lines of color, lack of color and areas with compromised polishing ability.
- Pitting “pock” marks of varying size on the surface.
All natural stone products can be damaged by excessive force, pressure or prolonged heating.
All seams will be plainly visible and where there are seams the product pattern, color and other characteristics may change.

Variation in the natural quartz color, pattern, size, shape, and shade are inherent and unique characteristics of Meridian Quartz Surfacing and are to be expected as with all natural products. These variations do not affect the product performance. Seams in quartz products will be plainly visible. Where seams occur, product color and pattern may change.
All Meridian Solid Surface® products are made from a non-porous, homogeneous blend of polyester and acrylic resins and natural mineral fillers.
