What is HybriQ?+
HybriQ® is an innovative technology developed and patented by Cosentino for the manufacture of the new Silestone®. It provides improved product performance and minimal environmental impact which contributes to maintaining a safe working environment. This new formulation results in a product composition where the presence of crystalline silica is significantly reduced. All Silestone® products labelled with HybriQ Technology® have a crystalline silica content below 50% or 10%, depending on the colour. For easy identification, all our slabs are labelled Q50 (maximum 50% crystalline silica) or Q10 (maximum 10% crystalline silica).
