Silestone, a world leader in quartz surfacing, has expanded its Platinum Series with the addition of "White Platinum," a stark hue with vibrant silver-colored flecks. The distinctive line includes a host of contemporary, steely shades, including: Carbon, Chrome, Steel and Zirconium. Influenced by European design trends, the White Platinum shade creates a bright and lively aesthetic for residential kitchens and hospitality spaces, while offering all the benefits of Silestone natural quartz, reports the manufacturer.

White Platinum, along with the other hues in the series, features reflective, silver-toned specs -- adding a hint of glamour to otherwise subdued tones. The unique flecks are created through a special heating process, which gives natural quartz a shimmery finish that is reminiscent of precious metals.

The expansion of the Platinum Series gives homeowners even more options for their kitchen and bath projects and widens the possibilities for architects and designers looking to transform a variety of surfaces with a bold and distinct pattern. With its speckled pattern, White Platinum adds a hint of sophisticated glamour and is ideal for countertops, backsplashes, vanity tops, shower stalls and fireplace surrounds.

"White Platinum offers a really fun, contemporary look inspired by minimalist design," said Lorenzo Marquez, Vice President of Marketing for Cosentino North America. "Silestone is known for its diverse color selection and White Platinum is a great example of the variety within our offerings."

As with all Silestone natural quartz products, White Platinum is naturally non-porous and never needs to be sealed, reports the company. It is easy to clean and has high scratch, stain, and heat resistance. Additionally, Silestoneoffers a unique combination of built-in antimicrobial protection that safely fights the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew along with the assurance of GREENGUARD certification for clean air quality, and National Sanitation Foundation certification (NSF 51) for safe food preparation. 

White Platinum is available in 54- x 120-inch slabs in 1, 2 and 3 cm thicknesses and standard tiles sizes of 12 x 12, 18 x 18 and 24 x 24 inches in a polished finish from high-end kitchen and bath stores and specialty design stores. Silestone Quartz offers a 15-year limited manufacturer's warranty, reports the manufacturer.
