HybriQ is a pioneering technology by Silestone®

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).

HybriQ Technology - FAQ

HybriQ® is Cosentino´s strategic response to a market that increasingly demands transparency, sustainability and responsibility from its suppliers, which anticipates the most restrictive legislation and outlines a more sustainable future, committed to its entire value chain.

HybriQ is a technology developed and patented by Cosentino for the manufacture of this new Silestone. The technology combines state-of-the-art processes, techniques and materials whilst maintaining all the advantages and properties of Silestone. Furthermore, HybriQ enhances the properties of Silestone and the working environment for those who handle the product, reducing the environmental impact of its manufacture.

Cosentino's R&D efforts are focused on two targets: the transformation of the production process towards total circularity and the modification of the Silestone formula.

All Silestone products with HybriQ technology are manufactured using 100% renewable energy and 99% recycled water. Furthermore, in line with Cosentino's circular economy philosophy, the waste generated during production is optimised, reused and returned to the production cycle as raw materials.

While HybriQ technology is a revolution in sustainability and safety, HybriQ+ goes one step further in its commitment to the environment.

All Silestone colours with HybriQ+ technology contain a minimum of 20% recycled materials, such as glass, making the product more sustainable by reusing waste.
