Silestone Alpina White is a composite quartz stone with a solid grey background and a delicate blend of five different hues of greys that bring un unparalleled natural look to interiors and design spaces inspired by the rich colours found in mountainous landscapes and rugged cannons.
Alpina White quartz belongs to the Mountain Series from Silestone which is composed by equally stunning materials such as Sierra Madre, Black Canyon, Mountain Mist and Sienna Ridge quartz.
Silestone is a material that contains a very high portion of natural quartz stone (93%-95%) and inorganic materials that vary depending on the colour of choice. Sue to its manufacturing process and the homogeneous blend of its different elements, a very high colour consistency is always achieved.
Silestone Alpina White offers very low porosity which is approximately 10 times lower than natural stones such as granite which makes it extremely resistant to stains produced by daily products used in kitchens, bathrooms and offices such as foods, wine, tea, ketchup and coffee.
The hardness of these materials is also higher than granite and marble getting closer in terms of resistance to scratches to the worlds’ strongest following Diamonds and Ruby.
Silestone Alpina White doesn’t fade over time, maintaining its appearance and mechanical properties in the long term even in intensive applications such as kitchen worktop, floorings, stairs and tiles.
Silestone Alpina White quartz is available in both tiles and slab formats with dimensions of 3250x15900mm 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.
