NEW YORK, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dekton by Cosentino, the ultra-compact surface with advanced technical properties for both interior and exterior application, introduces its XGLOSS Series—five new luxurious high-gloss colors touting the highest reflectivity with durability only Dekton can offer.
Cosentino's introduction of XGLOSS meets the interior design industry's growing demand for all things lacquered and reflective. Popular in high-gloss cabinetry, mirrored furniture, and now countertops and surfacing, the style adds a modern finish to any space. Combining ultra-polish with ultra-performance, however, is an industry first.
"Just as Cosentino pioneered the development of Dekton as an extremely resilient ultra-compact surface, we've continued our innovation with the breakthrough of a nanotechnology treatment that creates an extraordinarily luxurious, shiny finish on these new Dekton colors," says Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino North America. The newly developed Nanocoating Process creates a crystalline shine that not only enhances the XGLOSS Series colors but maintains the material's resistance to scratches, stains, UV rays and temperature shock.
Dekton's durability makes it suitable for an array of indoor and outdoor applications, including countertops, façades, cladding, flooring, stairs, and more. It is available in large format, which allows for seamless creative possibilities for architects and designers.

About Dekton® by Cosentino
Dekton is made using a proprietary process called Particle Sintering Technology (PST), an accelerated four-hour version of the change that rocks and stone undergo in nature when subjected to heat and pressure over thousands of years. The result: an ultra-compact surface with superior technical characteristics, including resistance to UV, scratches, stains, thermal shock, and very low water absorption. Its resistance to thermal shock against heat, frost and thawing allows Dekton to be used in any climate, offering potential for seamless design from indoor to outdoor spaces. Such unique characteristics and durability make Dekton ideal for an array of surface applications, including countertops, vanities, shower walls, flooring, decking, building facades, and many other architectural surfaces.
The new Dekton colors will be available nationwide beginning November 2015. Dekton is available in large format slabs, measuring 56" x 126", and in three thicknesses: 0.8cm, 1.2cm and 2cm. Dekton retails for $58-$96 per square foot, depending on thickness and color, at Cosentino Centers and kitchen and bath retailers nationwide. For more information, please visit www.dektonusa.com.
