Introducing Dekton XGloss, an innovative line of lustrous ultra-compact surfaces

The Cosentino Group introduces XGloss, an innovative new Dekton series of ultra-polished, high-tech, ultra-compact surfaces with a dazzling crystalline shine.

This new line in the Dekton range is produced by means of an advanced nanotechnological treatment, exclusively developed my Cosentino’s R&D department, and a mechanical polishing process that results in a highly reflective shine. 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. This luminous shine combined with the hardness and high-resistance characteristics of Dekton makes XGloss unique in the market. Currently, no other comparable surface achieves this combination of aesthetics and technical performance.
