Silestone N-Boost Performance Tests

If you’ve been reading this blog, it should come at no surprise when I say that Silestone is the best quartz product that you can buy. If you need a reminder though, keep reading!

In the video below, the good people over at Cosentino preform four different tests on a regular piece of quartz, and a piece of quartz treated with Silestone’s N-Boost. The tests are pretty standard in the sense that they test normal conditions that kitchen countertops are subjected to.

The first test measures water traces on black and white surfaces when held at an angle. We’re able to clearly see that water slides right off the Silestone, but sticks to the regular quartz.

The second test measures the material’s “pearl effect.” This is basically how many wipe passes it takes to clean water off the surface. It should come at no surprise that Silestone N-Boost dries immediately while the regular Quartz surface is still wet after multiple wipe passes.

The third test is the finger print test. The finger prints on standard quartz are still visible after a cloth wipe down while the Silestone N-Boost prints disappear after a single wipe pass.

The last test is probably the most impressive. This is to measure how well wine stains come off after drying for 24 hours. The stains on the Silestone N-Boosted Quartz are removed using water and a single wipe pass while the standard quartz retains the wine stains after water and multiple wipe passes.

As impressive as these tests are to read about, they’re even better to watch so check out the video below and then give us a call at (281)-495-6555 for your Silestone Quartz!
