- Stain resistant – Silestone is a non-porous surface and highly resistant to staining caused by coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup and many other everyday products.
- Acid resistant – Composed of one of the hardest minerals in the world, Silestone is exceptionally durable with a high level of resistance to external aggressors.
- Impact resistant – Silestone has an impact resistance that exceeds other similar products like granite and solid surfaces. This is attributed to the hardness of quartz, the polyester resin elasticity and the vibro-compression system used during its production.

Silestone is a quartz product that’s inclusive of other raw materials to improve its durability and design possibilities. Unlike granite, Silestone doesn’t require a sealer.
