Many people call Sintered Stone porcelain , Sintered Stone is similar to Dekton, but not that hard. Sintered stone is more and more popular in the world, it will replace the porcelain slab, marble and quartz.

One area that requires special attention when working with Dekton/Sintered Stone is material processing. There are some basic practices to keep in mind when you transport and position the 
Dekton/Sintered Stone for work. By using specific technology and Dekton/Sintered Stone processing techniques, you will protect the board from damage, so as not to affect performance when installing the surface.
 
When handling, moving and positioning your Dekton/Sintered Stone surface, please keep the following in mind:
 
Cover the top of the security support
Use wooden or plastic strips to protect the A-frame
Use clamps for up to two floors
Use protected clamps to avoid chipping the slab
When transporting more than two boards, please use an approved sling
 
Processing the Dekton/Sintered Stone surface is only one aspect of the process. 

In addition to careful cutting of Dekton/Sintered Stone slabs, there are some important techniques and techniques available when actually cutting and shaping the material during installation and/or manufacturing. Why is this happening?
 
Just as processing slabs requires the use of very powerful machines, cutting and shaping materials also require the use of high-power equipment. Due to this situation, please keep the following points in mind when using the following machines to operate the DEKTON board:
 
Bridge saw
Edge polishing machine

When cutting Dekton/Sintered Stone board, it is recommended to cut on a machine with a cement or sandstone bed. In addition to cutting on a bed made of recommended materials, smaller fragments should be secured when cutting. By fixing the smaller workpiece on the bed while cutting, the manufacturer will prevent the workpiece from moving during the cutting process.

Before starting the cutting process, the following steps should be taken to ensure the best results.
 
Of course, the working table should be clean when in use. Therefore, before starting any work on DEKTON materials, be sure to clean the surface of the cutting table. Cleaning will remove any debris that may have been left on the surface during work previously done on the cutting table.
 
Before cutting and forming, be sure to remove the protective plastic coating on the surface of the slab. Next, attach the label with the batch number to the order document. This step will preserve the warranty and ensure the traceability of the specific board used in the manufacturing and installation process.

Of course, personal protective equipments must be used during work. This will ensure that stone professionals receive as much protection as possible during the manufacturing process.
 
It is recommended that the water flow directly on the dekton blades instead of on the slab. This will provide the best results when you use a bridge saw to cut the slab. In addition to proper water flow, ChinShine dekton blade descent speed is also very important. The recommended lowering speed of the blade is 0.1 meter per minute (3.93 inches per minute or 0.328 feet per minute).

DEKTON® has compiled a list of approved diamond saw blades. The diamond saw blade provided on this website is one of the highest quality blades approved by Cosentino for cutting DEKTON®. These diamond saw blades are available in 10",12", 14" and 16" inch sizes.
 
When using DEKTON/Sintered Stone, using the correct diamond saw blade parameters will provide the best results. The following are suggestions from Cosentino DEKTON:
 
Blade size revolution
300mm (12") 2300-2500rpm
350mm (14") 2000-2200rpm
400mm (16") 1700-1900rpm
 
In addition to using the correct diamond saw blade size and speed. DEKTON recommends using a frequency converter (inverter) to change the rotation speed and lowering speed of the blade.

The straight cut parameters for DEKTON are provided in the following table:

To ensure that the flat panel benefits from horizontal support, be sure to check and clean the back of the flat panel. When placed on a supporting surface, debris or other items on the back of the board may cause the board to be uneven.

 
To relieve the internal stress of the board, make sure to trim each length of the board at least 1.5 cm (0.6 inches). In the cutting process, when the cutting head is less than 200 mm (7.87 inches) from any edge of the slab, the feed rate is reduced to 30%. When the cutting head is more than 200 mm (7.87 inches) away from the two ends of the sheet, the feed rate can be increased to 100%.
 
Here are some key points to keep in mind when cutting DEKTON with diamond saw blade:
 
Do not use silicone to fix the ceramic stove
Use a 35 mm (1 3/8 inch) diamond drill bit
Avoid cross cutting and always drill
The minimum radius at the corners is 5 mm (.2").

Just as there are recommendations for cutting DEKTON materials, there are best practices for edge-polishing as well. In this section of the article and in the video above, you can find the recommendations for performing edge-polishing on DEKTON surfaces. Here is a quick list of tips to help you set up your edge-polishing area:

  • Polished Finish Feed Speed: 0.6 m/min From 1.8 to 2.2 bar
  • Mitre Joint Feed Speed: 0.2 m/min
  • When in the edge-polisher, protecting the right side of the slab is recommended.
  • To avoid breaking the slab on the rollers, cut the mitre edge before doing the cutout.

To avoid chipping the edge to be mitered, DEKTON recommends using waste pieces before and after the edge you are mitering. Additionally, better results are achieved by leaving a 1mm edge than are realized when leaving a 0mm edge.

By following the aforementioned recommendations, DEKTON fabricators will ensure the best results consistently when working with the material.

Just as there are recommendations to follow when cutting and edge-polishing DEKTON surfaces, processing slabs also have recommended best practices. When these recommendations are closely followed by stone professionals, the processing phase of working with the material goes smooth and the results are good.

To begin with, always use water-cooled tools when processing DEKTON. This keeps the material and the tools from getting too hot. Overheated tools yield inferior results. Along the same lines, other equipment that is used to work with DEKTON has specific requirements. Let's look at some of those now.

First, Work tables must be in good condition if they are to be used for working with DEKTON. Also, the use of A-Frames is not recommended. Rather than using A-Frames, it is recommended that fabricators use tables so that the material has a sufficient amount of support. In fact, DEKTON slabs must be well supported with a substantial base to yield the best results.

When performing manual cutouts, cut the longer edges of the cutout first and then cut the shorter ones. When using tools designed for DEKTON, always follow the recommendations of the tool manufacturer.

When it comes to abrasives, the recommendation is to use 50 grains or higher. Additionally, slots at both miter edges are required for ensuring a strong bond. These slots improve the application of the adhesive.
 

When processing DEKTON with diamond saw blade, always use adhesives approved for DEKTON. Mastidek adhesives have been designed specifically for DEKTON. Also, Mastidek provides matching colors for the DEKTON slabs. 

Of course, it is important that you remove any excess adhesive from the surface of the material and bevel the joints using the appropriate equipment. Finally, solvent or acetone can be used to clean up any remaining adhesive waste that may be left on the surface.

Reinforcing DEKTON can be done using the proper materials. It is important that the material used to reinforce DEKTON be a substance that offers similar heat tolerance (or thermal performance). Some materials that can be used fro reinforcing DEKTON include:

  • Granite
  • DEKTON
  • Sintered Stone

Because Silestone will expand and contract at a different rate than DEKTON. Expansion and shrinkage are important to the integrity of the finished product.

When working with DEKTON using waterjet equipment, it is important that you follow some basic guidelines in order to obtain the most beneficial results. Some practical tips for using waterjet equipment include:
 
10 seconds entrance piercing
600 g/min abrasive
Place the bed as close as possible
The bed board must be intact
The distance between the nozzle and the slab is 3mm
 
The recommended settings for the water jet on DEKTON are: Always start drilling at a pressure of 700 bar, and then continue cutting at a high pressure of 3500 bar. Use 10 seconds to enter the perforation and operate the machine using the parameters recommended by the machine manufacturer.

Some important things to remember when using CNC machines to operate on DEKTON include:
 
Ensure that the suction cup is in good working condition.
Make sure to use a rectangular suction cup under the cut.
It is recommended to use rectangular suction cups.
 
In addition to using suitable suction cups and keeping them in good working condition, when cutting, always start from the point furthest from the edge of the board. A descent speed of 10 mm/min is also used.
 
Use the Dekton Sintered Stone diamond saw blade according to the manufacturer's recommendations. The video at the top of this page uses the following settings in its example; 500 rpm, 200 mm/min feed. Similarly, the examples showing counterbores follow the manufacturer's recommendations. The video shows that the milling cutter performs a cut at a speed of 60 mm/min and 700 rpm.
 
In addition to operating the machine with the correct settings, it is also important to keep sharp tools. Therefore, DEKTON recommends sharpening the tool after 4 drill holes using sandstone or other suitable materials.

Although preparation, cutting and processing of DEKTON are all important steps in material manufacturing. The DEKTON/Sinter Stone installation is also a key part of the process. The installation is performed in such a way that the integrity of the work placed on the surface before installation is critical. After all, the precautions taken so far have produced high-quality works, and the installer is the last part of the process. Let's look at some important things to keep in mind when installing the DEKTON surface.
 
Make sure that the support on the surface is level. Check the leveling to ensure that the surface has continuous and adequate support. Be extra careful when handling and placing the surface on the stand. During the installation process, pay attention to protecting the joints of the surface. As mentioned earlier, be sure to use the appropriate adhesive recommended by DEKTON.
 
In this article, we introduced you to the process of making a DEKTON/Sinter Stone surface by using ChinShine Dekton/Sinter Stone diamond saw blade and diamond tools. Along the way, we mentioned the best practices to follow in the process and discussed some machine settings that might be used during the manufacturing and installation of the DEKTON surface. If you strictly follow these guidelines and use the recommended settings on the right tools, using the recommended adhesives and material handling equipment, you will surely get the most consistent quality results.
