Silestone Carbono is a quartz stone with a dark grey to charcoal base and a array of speckled metal inserts scattered throughout its surface offering a distinctive metallic look in any space in which it is displayed. Carbono makes reference to the Spanish ‘ carbon’ meaning ‘ Charcoal’.
Carbono belongs to the Platinum Series of Silestone, launched in 2009 with an advertising campaign leaded by the Spanish Formula One racing driver and a double World Champion Fernando Alonso.
The Platinum Series is a metallic-looking range of five colours, created by curing the quartz compound at a higher temperature than that of standard Silestone quartz colours.
Silestone Carbono contains approximately 95% pure natural quartz, mixed with a unique patented technology that results in a non-porous, anti-bacterial surface that is both strong yet flexible and highly resistance to staining and scratches making it ideal for areas that demand long lasting and durable materials.
Silestone Carbono quartz is available in both tiles and slab formats with dimensions of 3040x1380mm which allow for large seamless designs that require surfaces that offer sleek designs and aesthetics.
Silestone surfaces are available in a Suede finish; this tactile texture surface is also adaptable to more traditional and/or industrial settings and features. It also offers a Volcano Finish, which has a heavy texture which will suit contemporary as well as traditional and industrial spaces.
