White Platinum

Silestone
Silestone, a 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.

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, Silestone offers 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 and thicknesses of 1, 2 and 3 cm thicknesses. Standard tile sizes of 12 x 12, 18 x 18 and 24 x 24 inches are also available in a polished finish. Silestone offers a 15-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.
