How is it different from SILESTONE?
ECO by Cosentino is a conglomerate surface, composed of 75% recycled materials,while the rest, though not recycled, is as organic as possible, including the remains of quarry stone, quartz and a resin with some vegetable content.
The difference with Silestone is in the raw material. While Silestone® is mainly quartz, ECO by Cosentino is basically composed of sanitary ware, porcelain tiles, porcelain stoneware, glass, micronised glass and vitrified ash.
