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