Arga Ceramic Material Description

Why Arga is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
Thin, durable and incredibly tough stone surfaces like the light brown, light grey, marble look Arga ceramic worktops make for a great alternative to granite and quartz. Not only are they just as sturdy and long-lasting as other stone worktops, these surfaces are exclusively available in 12mm thicknesses (6mm and even 3mm may be obtainable upon request). This means the realm of new applications unlocked for these lightweight products is extremely broad, encompassing vast projects. From wall cladding to layering kitchen cabinets, ceilings or even furniture.
Sintered-stone, commonly known as ceramic or porcelain, is predominantly utilised for kitchen worktops. It’s the supreme properties that truly make them stand out. Ceramic worktops are exquisitely simple to clean and maintain; they can withstand mechanical damage; but above all, their heat resistance is matched by granite alone. After all, these products are wrought by the fusion of vast additives: powdered quartz, ground minerals, waste raw materials and other heat-resistant particles. As such, the boiling water, hot oil, burning pots and pans won’t bring ceramic worktops any harm.
The speckled & wavy Arga kitchen ceramic worktops are made to provide its users comfort and an ease of cooking. Their sole purpose is to withstand and endure the risks brought about by everyday use of kitchen facilities. Today, ceramic kitchen worktops are one of the strongest kitchen countertop options on the market. And a remarkable decor alternative to fragile paint, tiles or wallpaper.
What thicknesses are available for Arga?
The slabs of Arga by Dekton are available in 12mm or 20mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
Any stone surface available in 12mm (or under) is also ideal for wall, kitchen cabinet or even furniture cladding. These thin surfaces are equally as strong as their thicker counterparts, except their weight is severely reduced.
Consequently, they are superb products used to clad ceilings, walls, stairs as well as bathtubs, bathroom equipment, swimming pools or other waterproofed areas. Thanks to their low-weight attribute, they are likewise utilised to decorate furniture, or more commonly kitchen cabinets. These fragile elements benefit from the low mass as their delicate hinges and fittings don’t buckle under the weight. Meanwhile they are continuously protected from dirt, grime, or unintentional scratches, making them very desirable.
What makes Arga so unique?
Product colour description:
Our light brown kitchen worktop colours, like Arga ceramic, embody the magnetic power of eye-attraction. They are intricate and unusual. At first, we associate light brown worktops with hardwood, often utilised for kitchen surfaces. But at second glance, the mocha-hued material ends the deception, and we realise (still enchanted), that we’re gazing at stone. Light brown kitchen worktops are superb for lovers of natural motifs, vintage accents and rustic spaces. The light brown + cream pairing is our absolute favourite.
The light grey colour of Arga by Dekton is without a doubt the most frequently purchased hue in our collection. This is today’s trend, after all. Grey spaces no longer evoke the feeling of industrial melancholy, instead elements like light grey kitchen worktops are implemented into modern architecture because they represent novelty and minimalism. A highly sought-out, attractive colour that instantly becomes the heart of any setting. And because of its deemed universality, it pairs with almost every type of cabinet, from white gloss, through to black matte or brown, classic raw wood.
The marble look pattern contains veins streaming and pulsating down the length of Arga by Dekton. They animate this surface, granting it energy, depth and chromatic richness. Organic, marble effect colours pair well with a cabinet of virtually any colour. But above all, they are stand-out centrepieces on kitchen islands, where the organic patterns cascade down the edge, flowing onto the adjoining side panels. This natural theme is universally applicable to similar or contrasting colours.
Material structure & composition:
Majority of our stone products, as Arga above, are speckled in nature. This means their composition comprises of small-to-medium contrasting veins and threads that spread across the slab surface in a usually regular manner. Like on a leaf, further mimicking the natural inspiration. This structure is a part of our marble-look, natural colour range – fantastic for almost any interior, modern and traditional alike.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops & full splashbacks,
- Modern and traditional interiors,
- General cladding.
Another ‘organic’ theme in our marble-look range is the wavy design, as displayed on Arga. This pattern is distinguished by (as the name suggests), wave-like features that stream across the slab. Like dunes in the desert or undulating waves cleaning a sandy beach. This material is strongly recommended for lovers of peaceful, serene motifs as part of their home design.
Material recommended for:
- Fireplace surrounds,
- Bathroom & utility room tops.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The light brown, light grey, marble look Arga by Dekton can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
