HybriQ is a pioneering technology by Silestone®
(PAT. PENDING)

An innovative generation of surfaces with a hybrid formulation. A new high performance, low crystalline silica mix of premium minerals, quartz and recycled glass.
The result is a more beautiful and sustainable product. Silestone with HybriQ technology is made through a production process fuelled entirely by renewable energy and recycled water.
This new generation maintains the high quality that characterises Silestone® surfaces.

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).
