Best DEKTON® Diamond Blades

When it comes to cutting ultracompact surfaces, fabricators seek diamond tooling that designed specifically for cutting these types of surfaces. Even very dense materials like porcelain and ceramic can require special cutting equipment. It stand to reason then that DEKTON® would need a very tailored tool set. In this post, we are going to analyze some of the features of DEKTON® surfaces and consider some blades that have been specifically designed for use on this material that seems to be taking the stone industry by storm.

What is DEKTON®?

That question is among the top questions that people want to get an answer to when it comes to this new, high-end material. DEKTON® is a material produced by Cosentino (the same company that produces Silestone), but DEKTON® is different from Silestone. In fact, this material is different from virtually all other materials.

To see what DEKTON® is, why not go right to the source? Here is a quote from the Dekton website:

DEKTON is a sophisticated blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest in glass and porcelain as well as the highest quality quartz work surfaces.

Using an exclusive process dubbed TSP, DEKTON® is produced. This technology accelerates the natural process that causes metamorphic change in materials to produce natural stone. The result is an extremely durable surface that is ultra-compact and which is known as DEKTON®. So that’s what DEKTON® is, now what do you cut it with?

When you look for tools approved for DEKTON® you will find a selection of blades that will work for cutting it and they will range in price.
