CaesarStone evolved a new kind of work surface by adding quartz to the Bretonstone process. The manufacture of slabs from a mixture of ground quartz aggregates, pigments and polymers proved to be the unique components necessary for this new generation of surfacing. As a result of this advanced technology, CaesarStone is able to provide improved products with unprecedented physical properties superior to those of marble, granite and other manufactured surfaces. For more than a decade CaesarStone has set new standards in innovation and craftsmanship and continues to set the trends in the industry. CeasarStone strives to maintain environmental protection, purification and recycling during installations and production, and use of raw, recycled, non-toxic materials.

Silestone Quartz is a sophisticated product that, by definition, is multi-dimensional in functionality and can reinvent itself to constantly stay “on trend” with styles to meet people’s changing interests and attitudes. Today, Silestone comes in a polished or leather finish. First introduced 20 years ago in 12 original colors, Silestone has evolved its color palette over and over leading to more than 50 color selections. Silestone also offers a wide range of options based on depth of color and dimension, ranging from a single-mixing color process that results in a more homogeneous look to the most exclusive, innovative five-dimensional color process that provides a higher index of refraction for more richness of color. Silestone has also reinvented its spectrum of patterns from its solid, homogeneous patterns to its color selections filled with movement with varying size quartz gemstone particulates and other enhancement materials. The possibilities to add different components are virtually endless, such as the enhancements of glass and mirror featured in the Stellar Series, the large grains of quarried quartz in the Mountain Series and the sanded mirrors in the Cielo Series. Silestone offers virtually unlimited possibilities in terms of applications, giving the end-user the power to continue reinventing their spaces.
