General Advice For Use

REGULAR CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Silestone and ECO by Cosentino are low porous surfaces and therefore highly resistant to everyday domestic stains For regular cleaning of Silestone' or ECO by Cosentino surfaces, Cosentino SA recommends you use Q-Action If Q-Action is not available, water and mild/neutral soap is the best option for regular cleaning.

CLEANING STUBBORN STAINS

The following are some of the actions to be carried out for stubborn stains that have built up over time.

GREASE STAINS

Apply Q-Action to the stain and leave for 2 minutes then gently scrub with a soft scouring pad (normally suplied for ceramic hobs) until it disappears Rinse immediately with water and dry. If 0-Action is not available. use CIF Original Cream in the same way.

LIMESCALE (Glass Marks)

Pour an anti-limescate product (like Viakal or similar) onto the surface and leave to act for 1 min Rinse with plenty of water and dry Follow the instructions recommended by the manufacturer

Do not use on any products (taps, sink. etc) other than the worktop itself as it might damage their finish.

SILICONE AND PUTTY MARKS

Using a blunt spatula and CleanColorsil or Solvent-based silicon remover (that does not contain dichloromethane) gently scrub with a soft scouring pad (for ceramic Nobs) Then rinse with plenty of water and dry We recommend that the marks are removed at the time of installation

DIFFICULT STAINS

For difficult stains, pour 0-Action (or CIF Ongmal Cream) onto the affected area leaving it to act for 2 mins Next gently scrub with a soft scouring pad (for ceramic hobs). nnse with plenty of water and dry.

REACTION TO KNOCKS

One of the characteristics that makes these surfaces stand out is their high resistance to knocks However. avoid striking areas of the surface that due to the fabrication of design. may be slightly weaker (pointed corners, fine edges. etc ).

REACTION TO HEAT

After using kitchen utensils such as frying parts, saucepans. etc, do not place them directly on the surface Leave them on top of a tablemat (if possible with rubber support) to cool down the reasoning behind this is that the thermal shock caused by the difference in temperature (cold/hot) could damage the surface.

3.3.4 Geos-Product Knowledge

GEOS

Is made of 57-65%

Recycled glass

 

 

GEOS Recycled Glass Surface are durable, earth-friendly and affordable.

With a carefully chosen mixture of both pre consumer and postconsumer glass,

GEOS is not only beautiful, it is sustainable.

Stain, Heat, Burn and Scratch Resistant, with through color.

15year warranty. food safety, hardness of 6, no
sealing and maintenance free.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

GEOS Sustainable Surfaces are easy to maintain and keep clean. For daily care and maintenance, we recommend wiping the surface with a damp cloth or a mild cleaner such as 409', Fantastik', or comparable cleaning product. The use of bleach or other harsh chemical cleaners is not necessary and Is not recommended.
GEOS Sustainable Surfaces are non-porous so there is no need to seal or wax the surface. We do recommend, however, that spills be wiped up as soon as possible just as a matter of practice. In the event of a stubborn stain, we suggest soaking the stain with a mild cleaner combined with gentle scrubbing with a nonabrasive pad such as Scotch Brite®.

THE GEOS DIFFERENCE

Over the last decade, more and more companies strive to protect the environment in which we live. GEOS Sustainable Surfaces is the first recycled glass surface to combine an environmental focus with a product that is durable, easy to maintain and aesthetically pleasing.
The majority of recycled glass surfaces are made using concrete, making them porous. Over time, what was once a beautiful investment will be full of etches and stains if not properly maintained by sealing and waxing at least once every year. GEOS Sustainable Surfaces are non-porous and practically maintenance free, never requiring the need to be sealed or waxed. Backed by a 10-year warranty, GEOS Sustainable Surfaces is a choice you can live with.

GEOS Residential 15-year Warranty

EOS warrants through the fabricator to the original owners of installed GEOS products for a period of fifteen (15) years from the date of installation that the GEOS material will be free from manufacturing defects. If a manufacturing defect occurs during the warranty period, EOS will, at its option, replace the defective EOS products at no cost to the end user. The fabricator of the countertops reserves the right to repair the defect in a workmanlike manner should they judge that the material is repairable.

Granite-Product Knowledge

What is Granite?
Igneous rock formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava!!

Stain resistant:

  • Treated to resist common household stains

Impact Resistant:

  • Stone is hard and durable

  • Formed by the earth’s natural processes

Scratch resistant:

  • 6 on the Mhos hardness Scale

Chips, Fissures & Pits:

  • Varies per Color

Heat resistant:

  • Class 1 fire rating

  • Will not scorch or burn

  • Withstands high Temperatures

  • Trivets are still recommended

The Treatment for Stain Resistance

Mechanical Resistance –The treatment (impregnator) penetrates into the granite surface and is anchored to the material by a chemical bond that cannot be rubbed off.
Thermal Stability – The treated Granite surfaces will withstand temperatures of up to 300C (572F)
UV Stability – The treated Granite is suitable for indoor or outdoor application.
Optical Appearance – The treated Granite’s natural stone color and beauty is not changed by this colorless treatment.
Chemicals –Use of chemicals may damage the treated surface and are not covered under warranty. See Care and Maintenance Section
Warranty – The benefits of this treatment allow VCI to provide an extended 15 year limited stain warranty without the countertop surfaces needing to be retreated.

Radioactive

Granite, Radon, Radiation and Other Myths
There is an urban legend that suggests granite countertops can emit harmful levels of radon or radiation. It's just not true.
What is Radon, Anyway?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found all around us.
In fact, other things routinely found in a home tend to emit radiation, including concrete blocks, smoke detectors, television sets, Brazil nuts and even bananas and potatoes. Don't worry, though, they are no more harmful than granite countertops.
Where Can I Get the Facts?
The Marble Institute of America has a library of information about radon and radiation in granite countertops.
MIA Brochure: The Truth about Granite and Radon/Radiation

Why is HD Granite Unique?

  • Only A grade slabs

  • Treated at the factory for stains (15 Year Warranty)

  • Green Guard® certified

  • Guaranteed Installs (install warranty)

  • Digital templating and advanced tooling

  • AutoCAD layouts

  • Professional installations

Characteristics – Color Variation

  • These 4 slabs are Bianco Antico, this is an exotic stone from Brazil formed millions of years ago, and it contains mainly Mica, Feldspar and Quartz. Mica is the softest mineral in granite and does not shine to a gloss, quartz and feldspar are the hardest and are very glossy.
  • In lower concentrations, there are other minerals that contribute to the color variations in the granite slab. You may be shocked to know these are all Bianco Antico, they all come from the same stone quarry and are all acceptable at installation.

  • If this level of variation is unacceptable make sure to buy a manufactured product like Quartz, Eco, Geos or Corian.

Characteristics – Inter-crystalline boundaries

 

  • Intercrystalineboundaries are another feature that should be explained to customers. You can see here two minerals (quartz and feldspar) intersecting. These minerals never fully bond and means there is a physical separation between them.

  • At times you can hook your fingernails in them, this is again acceptable for granite countertops and not a defect 

Characteristics – Gloss Variations

These images show resin fill, resin fill is a process in which a bucket of clear resin is pored over an entire slab to fill voids. This is done before polishing, once cured the slab is sent through the polishing equipment. When complete the resin will never be as glossy as the quartz and feldspar in the countertop.

Characteristics – Fissures

These images show fissures in granite. Sometimes these fissures occur along Intercrystaline boundaries, and sometime as in this case they are inherent in the mineral.
In the left image you can see how the fissures run horizontally and vertically, the entire way through the slab. There is no way to cut around fissures. If the fissure happens to open up in transport or during the installation VCI will repair the separation by using a high quality resin.
This is not considered a defect or warrant replacement.

Repairs

  • Granite slabs are not perfect (as they are natural stone) but rather come with imperfections. Repairs to these imperfections are done prior to installation and at the time of installation.

  • Repairs are part of a natural granite countertop and are not considered a defect and do not warrant replacement.

Oxidation Marks

It is important to remember that granite is composed of many different minerals. Some of these minerals may oxidize such as copper or iron. When these types of minerals oxidize they can turn an area of the stone a blue green or rust color. This does not happen often but it is important to know that when it does it is not covered under warranty.

Granite -Care & Maintenance

Regular Care and Maintenance: On a daily basis clean the counter top with warm water and a few drops of dish soap or antibacterial soap using a soft cloth. Do not clean with Vinegar by itself as it will not breakdown grease and could potentially cause the grease to absorb into your countertops.

1.If you spill something on your counter top, blot with a paper towel or soft cloth immediately. Do not wipe the area as this can spread the spill.
2. Wash the spill with warm water and dish soap and rinse thoroughly.
3. Dry the area with a soft cloth.

Properly treated stone will repel most stains if the spills are cleaned promptly

Stubborn Stains (Alcohol and Oil): Granite is a porous material and is treated to resist stains when properly cleaned and maintained. Alcohol, Oil, alcohol and oil based products if left on  the countertop surface can penetrate into the pores of the granite even if the countertop has been treated.
If this occurs, poultices can be used to help remove the stain. However, this could require multiple applications when trying to remove the stain and may not always remove the stain completely.
If you spill any of these substances on the countertop blot the area with a paper towel immediately. Do not wipe the area as this can spread the spill. Wash with warm water, dish soap and rinse thoroughly.

Reaction to Heat: Extreme temperature changes (hot or cold) may harm your granite countertop. Direct heat from pots placed on countertops may cause the granite to discolor and/or crack - always use a trivet when placing hot pots or heat generating appliances directly on the countertop.

Reaction to Abrasion, Extreme Weight and Impact: Granite countertops are scratch resistant, but they are not scratch-proof. Avoid using knives directly on the surface. Always use a cutting board placed on top of the countertop to avoid damage. Also use trivets or mats under ceramic objects that can scratch the surface. Granite countertops can also be damaged when subjected to extreme weight or when forcefully hit with objects. Do not stand, sit or drop any objects on your counter tops.

  • Clean with hot water

3.6.5 Dekton-Care & Maintenance

Normal Maintenance

Due to its practically zero porosity, the ultra-compact Dekton' surface is highly resistant to staining in day-to-day use and from chemical products, making it ideal for use as a kitchen worktop and as a surface for other kinds of work, both inside and out.
For general cleaning, Cosentino recommends the use of Q-Action with a sponge or scouring pad. If this product is not available, the best option is to use a neutral soap and water.

Cleaning Stubborn Stains

In the case of aggressive stains, either from products that are resistant to normal cleaning agents or because they have remained on the work surface without being removed, we recommend using more specific products such as: cream detergents with abrasive particles or solvents (acetone or universal solvent type). The accompanying table shows the various types of stains with their corresponding cleaning products.

3.6.6 Dekton-Warranty

Dekton presents its 25-year warranty. A warranty to give consumers more confidence. Once again Cosentino proceeds to innovate. The warranty of the leader. We shall now indicate the steps to follow and the requisites for fulfilment of the Dekton warranty. Warranty terms and conditions. 25-year warranty for Dekton products installed by a workshop or marble manufacturer:

  • For the warranty to take effect, the user must produce proof of purchase.

  • Since Cosentino does not actually make worktops, but supplies the material, in the event of the conditions being for application of the 25-year warranty offered by the Group, all the material required will be provided to replace the worktop; however, the cost of manufacturing and installing the product will not be covered by Cosentino

  • The warranty does not cover defects deriving from manufacturing or installing the product, as such operations are not performed by Cosentino.
