White Zeus Counter Top

Silver Award

NEW YORK, NEW YORK (April, 2011) – Silestone (www.silestoneusa.com), the world leader in quartz surfacing, proudly announces the launch of White Zeus Extreme, the whitest white hue available in quartz surfacing materials.

Through cutting-edge technology and utilizing very refined quartz, Silestone has reinvented its original best selling White Zeus color to create White Zeus Extreme. The stark hue offers an unparalleled solid, bright and clean look with less grain than the original version. With the emergence of White Zeus extreme, Silestone has created an entirely new design-driven aesthetic that exudes a clean look ideal for numerous installations including countertops, flooring, walls, fireplace surrounds, desks, vanity tops and shower stalls.

“White Zeus Extreme is for designers, architects and consumers looking for the ultimate sleek, modern, and refined white appearance throughout the home,” said Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “Solid white surfaces are challenging to achieve and we are especially thrilled to have pushed our innovation to a new level with White Zeus extreme. This color truly underscores our commitment to being on the cutting edge of design and innovation.”

As with all Silestone natural quartz products, White Zeus Extreme is naturally non-porous and never needs to be sealed. It is easy to clean and has high scratch, stain, and heat resistance. Silestone is also proven to be a cleaner and safer countertop. It 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 Zeus Extreme is available in polished, Leather and Volcano finishes as well as in the Integrity Sink. For the polished finished, White Zeus Extreme will retail from $49-$78 per square foot and in both Leather and Volcano finishes, White Zeus Extreme will retail $66-$90 per square foot depending on thickness and color. It comes in a variety of sizes, including 54”x 120” and 68” x 128” slabs in 1cm, 2 cm and 3cm thickness and standard tiles sizes of 12”x 12”, 18”x 18” and 24”x 24”. Silestone Quartz offers a 15-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. For more information on Silestone, visit www.silestoneusa.com.
